Critic Reviews of "Dreamgirls"Orlando SentinelMay 13, 2009
It compares to that other "legitimate" musical smash of recent vintage, Chicago. It just doesn't have the life or fun of Chicago.Time OutFebruary 03, 2007
The opening rump-shaking immediately sets the tone: Dreamgirls pulses with sheer exuberance. When was the last time a musical, much less a huge Hollywood production, felt this alive?Time OutJanuary 25, 2007
It reserves singing and dancing for the stage until Jamie Foxx just randomly bursts into verse while strolling down the street. Dreamgirls wants to be Effie but ends up as Deena: thin, smooth, unburdened by a personality.SlateJanuary 03, 2007
Watching Dreamgirls on the big screen feels like an event somehow. Maybe it's the conviction and passion that the actors bring to their roles.Los Angeles TimesJanuary 03, 2007
Dreamgirls is the entire musical package, a triumph of old school on-screen glamour, and we wouldn't want it any other way.Chicago ReaderJanuary 03, 2007
Elegiac, filthy-minded, unsparing, and as deeply moving as you'd expect from any de facto story of Peter O'Toole's life.EmanuelLevy.ComJanuary 06, 2010
Condon's adaptation is polished and enjoyable and yet something is missing from making it a truly great musical movie--perhaps a more coherent vision or unity.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
A tight and entertaining musical with a show stealing performance by Jennifer Hudson.Movie Magazine InternationalJuly 22, 2007
Dreamgirls opened on Xmas day and it was every much of a brilliant holiday movie. I guess the only complaint I have is it is too slick.Big Picture Big SoundJuly 14, 2007
There's a joy on screen -- a love for the material that's palpable and contagious -- but the material, in the end, lets them down.Reel Film ReviewsJuly 14, 2007
...Hudson offers up a seriously underwhelming performance...
