Emanuel Levy

Condon's adaptation is polished and enjoyable and yet something is missing from making it a truly great musical movie--perhaps a more coherent vision or unity.

A musical for people who've forgotten how to listen, and how to feel

It compares to that other "legitimate" musical smash of recent vintage, Chicago. It just doesn't have the life or fun of Chicago.

A tight and entertaining musical with a show stealing performance by Jennifer Hudson.

Dreamgirls opened on Xmas day and it was every much of a brilliant holiday movie. I guess the only complaint I have is it is too slick.

There's a joy on screen -- a love for the material that's palpable and contagious -- but the material, in the end, lets them down.

Worse than a movie of the weak (pun intended)

You may not be expecting this from a musical, but Dreamgirls is one of the most fast-paced, frenetically-edited, roller-coaster rides of a movie that you'll see all year.

Dreamgirls is a splashy film with a great cast, strong performances, terrific music and an engrossing, though...familiar, story.

There's no faint-praise here. It's the best film of the year.

Una lujosa producción que, a nivel dramático, tiene la misma profundidad que una telenovela. Eso sí: hay (alguna) buena música y una inusual actuación de Eddie Murphy.

Newcomer Jennifer Hudson owns the movie with her magnetic presence and go-tell-it-on-the-mountain voice.* ** ** *

Jennifer Hudson makes her acting debut in Bill Condon's Dreamgirls, and it's safe to say the phrase "star-making turn" was invented for performances like hers.

Cinema em Cena

Os realizadores exibem exatamente o mesmo preconceito que fingem condenar em seu longa, valorizando mais a estética do que o talento. Hipocrisia, Dreamgirls é seu nome.

I could have happily sat through the first half a second time, though I was barely able to sit through the second half once.

To say that Dreamgirls is the best musical so far this century is to make no great claim for it. To say that it's the best film about the music business since 1996's Grace of My Heart and fit to be spoken of in the same breath says more.

...less compelling than the actual history of the Supremes. Similarly, the music felt like faxed-over Motown, a couple of generations less crisp than the original.

A stellar cast, stunning sets and costumes and engaging music make this a modern musical for a new generation.

Times [UK]

Few pictures can match the glamorous pull of Dreamgirls. Bill Condon's first big musical since Chicago is a glossy, gleaming Cadillac of a film with a vintage rhythm and blues engine tuned to perfection. The cast is dressed to kill.
