Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 11/07/2008
"[I]t works surprisingly well. Samuel L. Jackson and the late Bernie Mac make a winning duo in the bawdy buddy road-trip picture SOUL MEN."
Los Angeles Times - 11/07/2008
"[T]he laughs build and you realize that Mac is pulling them out of some unseen top hat."
New York Times - 11/07/2008
"SOUL MEN is a raucous, rambling comedy....[T]he soundtrack of well-made soul covers and the cruder music of Mr. Jackson and Mr. Mac's foulmouthed one-upmanship provide a measure of satisfaction."
Variety - 11/03/2008
"[Mac and Jackson] appear to be having a ball doing the musical numbers, which are infectious....[The film] manages to hit just enough of the right notes to serve as a respectable coda to Mac's legacy."

"[Mac and Jackson] appear to be having a ball doing the musical numbers, which are infectious....[The film] manages to hit enough of the right notes to serve as a respectable coda to Mac's legacy."
Rolling Stone - 11/13/2008
"SOUL MEN is a chance to salute these masters of mirth and music. Take it."
Hollywood Reporter - 11/03/2008
"This contemporary riff on THE SUNSHINE BOYS generally manages to succeed...thanks to the entertaining performance by Mac and co-star Samuel L. Jackson and its generous doses of raucous humor and sweet soul music."

Product Description:

Malcolm Lee, director of upbeat family fare such as WELCOME HOME ROSCOE JENKINS and ROLL BOUNCE, takes a slightly raunchier tack for his uproarious buddy comedy, SOUL MEN. The late Bernie Mac gives one of his final performances as Floyd Henderson, a retired back-up singer for a ‘60s soul act known as the Real Deal. When the group's lead singer, Marcus Hooks--played by real-life soul singer John Legend--suddenly drops dead, the two remaining members of the group, Henderson and Louis Hinds (Samuel L. Jackson), are enlisted to play a tribute concert at the Apollo Theatre in New York City. Hinds, an ex-convict trying his best to stay out of the limelight, is persuaded by Henderson to drive cross-country for the chance to re-ignite his music career. The classic comedic trope of road-trip antagonism reaches new heights as the pair curse and claw at each other for the entire voyage, taking occasional breaks to stage impromptu roadside rehearsals and other, less PG-rated misadventures. Throughout, Mac's formidable skills at slapstick play against Jackson's no-nonsense, tough guy demeanor--a veneer that, at times, cracks enough to reveal some genuinely tender moments between the two. But SOUL MEN's final, most poignant postscript is a cameo by fallen soul legend Isaac Hayes--who, coincidentally, died the same week as Bernie Mac--casting a bittersweet pall over the film's enjoyably comic shenanigans.

Product Description:

Though it's been some twenty years since they have spoken with one another, two estranged soul-singing legends agree to participate in a reunion performance at the Apollo Theater to honor their recently deceased band leader
