Cindy Adams Approves
|Columnist Cindy Adams of Page Six from the New York Post gave a quick review of DREAMGIRLS in her column.|
"BEST film to come along in forever is "Dreamgirls." Doesn't lag a second. Doesn't do dumbed-down vulgar. Doesn't come off overproduced. Doesn't suffer a director so in love with himself and his artistry that his camera lingers everywhere too long. What is does do is entertain at breakneck speed. Excellent story told excellently at the hands of excellent director Bill Condon. Beyoncé is very able. Superb singer, beautiful woman and also talented actress. All the performances - Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy, Danny Glover - are superior. But Oscar-worthy is newcomer Jennifer Hudson. Her character Effie, heavyset lead singer of the "Dreamettes," quits the trio after being passed over for Beyoncé. This lady's magic. At my screening, the audience, in the dark, tough critics all, applauded her"
