Storyline Heading
The story of Louis and Floyd, a popular singing duo back in the day, who went their separate ways and never spoke again. When the death of their former group leader reunites them and sends them driving cross country for a tribute concert at the legendary Apollo Theatre, they will have only five days to bury the hatchet on a twenty-year-old grudge.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Musical - This is a profanity-heavy and often raunchy comedy aimed at urban adult audiences. Families familiar with the late Bernie Mac's sitcom should be warned that this is definitely not a film for the whole family.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good No one could accuse Soul Men of originality - it cribs liberally from countless buddy films and road movies - but it offers enough energy and humor to overcome its shortcomings. The hit-to-miss quotient of the film's frequently profane and raunchy jokes is surprisingly high and the movie benefits from some well-executed R&B numbers.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good This movie has a lot of good music in it, some on the soundtrack, some on the screen. Jackson and Bernie Mac have enormous fun doing intricate dance moves together. Isaac Hayes has a farewell role worthy of our memories.

USA Today Full Review
Excellent In the movie, which opens Friday, Jackson and Mac play former bandmates who embark on a zany cross-country road trip to perform at the memorial concert for their deceased lead singer.
