Soul Men

Soul Men is directed by Malcolm Lee and stars Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac as "Soul Men", a comedy about two very different men. Unfortunately this was the late Bernie Mac's last onscreen appearance and ironically, this was one of his best roles.

In the movie, Samuel L. Jackson plays Floyd and Bernie Mac plays Louis, two "friends" who started out as backup singers for Marcus Hooks (John Legend) and eventually making it on their own as the "Real Deal".

Although both eventually went their separate ways due to mismanagement, fights and the like, they eventually reunite many years later in order to hold a tribute concert for their former singer, Marcus Hooks.

From here, the comedy begins that is at times reminiscent of Planes, Trains and Automobiles as they embark on a road trip in a 1971 Cadillac and as you can guess, things go astray for our very unlikely friends. From having sex with an old groupie (Jennifer Coolidge), meeting a daughter (Sharon Leal) they never knew they had and the predictable friendship from the ashes, Soul Men is a lighthearted, cliched and at times delightful comedy.

Definitely a movie for fans of Jackson or Mac or those lovers of lighthearted comedies. Soul Men manages to keep "its soul".
