What the Critics say
Mark Keizer What keeps this medium-grade formula picture from coming to a complete stop are the precious crumbs of genuinely funny comedic banter between well-paired stars Samuel Jackson and Bernie Mac.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert You want a good time? Soul Men will provide it. You want to say goodbye to Bernie Mac? He wants to say goodbye to you.
James Berardinelli Ultimately, Soul Men might be regarded as a disposable motion picture - and I can't argue too strongly against that classification - but at least it's enjoyable, which is more than can be said about many productions lumped into that category.
Peter Travers Soul Men is a chance to salute these masters of mirth and music. Take it.
C. Fuchs While I'm guessing the film will have its supporters, especially if they like the thought of bickering guys dropping the F-bomb geriatric style, it just feels too much like uninspired material recycled from far too many other films for me to enjoy it.
Tomatometer Soul Men features lively performances from Bernie Mac and Samuel L. Jackson and some hilarious moments, but ultimately suffers from an unoriginal script.
