Comedy, Musical
An unfortunately unsatisfying coda to the career of Bernie Mac, Soul Men is a funked-up but low-laugh version of Grumpy Old Men. Mac and Samuel L. Jackson play members of a former Stax Records-esque groove group called The Real Deal. Three decades after the group’s breakup, they get the chance for a big reunion concert, if they can only drive across America while working out their relationship problems. Yes, it’s that movie: They hate each other; they get in trouble; they laugh; they learn; they have Viagra-induced erections lasting longer than four hours. I wish Soul Men were funnier, but Mac and Jackson are pretty great in the lead roles, and they squeeze whatever comedy they can out of this lemon.

Lack of Laughter

In 'Soul Men', Samuel L. Jackson and the late Bernie Mac are great; too bad the movie around them stinks »
