Soul Men Reviews
Both Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes died in unrelated circumstances on August 9 and 10 of 2008, respectively. Director Lee said the film was heavily re-edited to soften the tone of the film, as a tribute to the two actors.
The score for the film was composed by Stanley Clarke. The title song, "Soul Music" by Anthony Hamilton, which serves as the fictional trio's 1969 hit single, was written and produced by Frank Fitzpatrick. The official soundtrack was released November 4, 2008 by Stax Records, and features music by John Legend, Isaac Hayes, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and others.

Soul Men received generally mixed reviews from film critics. Based on 99 reviews, Rotten Tomatoes reported that 44% of critics stated that Soul Men features lively performances from Bernie Mac and Samuel L. Jackson, and some hilarious moments, but ultimately suffers from an unoriginal script. On Metacritic, another review aggretator, reported that critics gave the film an average score of 49/100, based on 23 reviews.
The film opened at #6 with $5,000,000 behind Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Changeling, High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Role Models, and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (which Bernie Mac was also in).
