To say that Dreamgirls deserves Golden Globe and Academy Award recognition is a fact, to say that Jennifer Hudson is a star would be an understatement. I've seen the film twice since it opened on Christmas Day and I knew it would be amazing but I had no idea just how wonderful the production would be until I took my seat in the theater and began the 2 hour journey with Jennifer, Eddie, Jamie, and Beyonce.

I'm not a movie critic so I will refrain from reviewing the film and judjing it unfairly . Besides there was very little that I didn't like about the film, other than I wish Larell's solo "Ain't No Party" from the Broadway show would have been included in the film version.

I can't remember the last time I was this excited about seeing a movie, I took my entire family to see it for Christmas. My dad hadn't been to the movies in years so it was definitely a treat to have him experience Dreamgirls with me.

Let me say on the record that Jennifer Hudson is amazing!!! She will surely win both the Golden Globe and the Oscar. Not bad for someone who was voted off of American Idol. It was hilarious to hear theater patrons say "Beyonce is good, but she ain't got nothing on Jennifer"! I LIVE!!!

For the past couple of weeks I've embraced my musical theater roots and my inner homo and blasted the Dreamgirls soundtrack at home and in my car. I can't imagine that their is a gay man alive that hasn't seen this movie yet, but if you haven't then I urge you to get to the nearest theater and experience Dreamgirls for yourself. It isn't everyday that a film of this caliber comes out of Hollywood.

THANK YOU for that clip. That wasn't a scene from a movie, it was an experience.

I have not seen the film yet, but I was lucky enough to be working in the entertainment press in Boston on the night that "Dreamgirls" opened for out-of-town tryouts. So I got to see/hear Jennifer Holliday sing that amazing song live for the first time! So many years later, I still remember the power of that performance.
