In the end, its lack of originality and extremely low sense of humor keep Soul Men down a lot further than it deserves. There's potential there, but it's never realized.

Be prepared to laugh out loud and move to the music as Soul Men has plenty of both to offer.

Are there two other actors who are able to utter the word 'motherf**ker' with such forceful comic authority? I think not.

The filmmakers chose to go too often to the well, I mean the toilet, for inspiration.

'Soul Men' is a mediocre film at best, buoyed by the abrasive chemistry of Bernie Mac and Samuel L. Jackson.

Awkwardly sentimental but nevertheless sharply spry in song and sass, Lee's acid-tongued Soul Men certainly have something to sing about.

Soul Men spins an erratic tune.

November 14, 2008
Mostly, the film works, due largely to the bickering, grumpy-old-men dynamic between the two leads.

Bernie Mac can say MF too.

Sam Jackson and Bernie Mac look positively pained when they squeeze into Pip-like suits and begin to sing.
November 14, 2008
Nothing great comedy or drama happens in Soul Men. The pleasure comes in seeing Samuel L. Jackson and the late Bernie Mac do their stuff.

This may not be a great movie, but I still couldn't help falling in love with it.

Considering the canvas the story provides, and the richness of the tradition it taps into, the amount and quality of the music is pretty disappointing.

This one's only fair, but it has its low-down wiles and its moments.

It is not a perfect film but it is a nice, solid reminder of how great Bernie Mac was.
November 10, 2008
It really is bittersweet to watch Mac in one of his final performances. He makes the most of pretty average material here.
November 9, 2008
...a sweet and occasionally funny, but over-amped and limply constructed comedy...
