Soul Men

Out of sync. Never out of style.


Soul Men
Years ago, two singers were part of a successful act. Their lead singer left to pursue a solo career, while their careers died. The lead singer had now died, and the two backup singers are invited to a tribute concert. So they head across country in an old car, having hilarious adventures along the way.

Mark Keizer quote iconWhat 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 quote iconYou want a good time? Soul Men will provide it. You want to say goodbye to Bernie Mac? He wants to say goodbye to you.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconUltimately, 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.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconSoul Men is a chance to salute these masters of mirth and music. Take it.

ScreenIt
