Summary: Soul Men was a film that was racked with problems right from the start. Originally the film kept getting pushed back because of a law suit by the R&B group, Sam & David, which claimed it to be a farce on their life story. The group also accused the producers of copyright infringement for using their style and the title of one of their songs, "Soul Man". The law suit was finally settled and the movie was released in 2008.
Excerpt: Like the title says this film is very funny i had a great laugh all the way through ! Bernie mac and sam jackson are really great together great performance from them both. However i don't think the picture quality is great its not terrible but i have seen a lot better, Also the sound is ok again no problem with it but far from great! overall though i must say the film is well worth a watch.
Excerpt: First off, as always, Samuel L. Jackson is the man! So you know this was going to be a decent movie at the very least. But with the comedic pairing of both Jackson and Bernie Mac, this movie was pretty darn good. At least better than I thought it was going to be. There was great chemistry between the two with a decent story to accomodate. An amusing movie throughout. PQ here was great as well.
Excerpt: First and for most R.I.P to one of the greatest kings of comedy Bernie Mac and legendary Soul artist and singer Isaac Hayes very sad days. But will never. I MEAN NEVER be Forgotten. This film was not bad. Bernie gave us Bernie. He did what he does best and delivered a great performance. Along with Samuel L. Jackson two funny guys. at times the movie would fall flat with ran on comedy lines and over played acting from newbie actors.
Soul Men Has Plenty Of Laughter And Warmth For The Soul

Summary: What a Brilliant way for Bernie Mac to, ever so sadly, leave us to early...Samuel L Jackson and Bernie Mac team up for a hilarious duo on a road trip to pay final respects for their friend who was once the lead singer in their soul trio singing group and went solo leaving Bernie and Samuel in the dust to live off royalties the next 30 years. Its a heart ache to have lost Bernie at such a young age and at the height of his career.
Summary: Soul Man is was it is... crude, rude, and genuinely funny. It has two of the hardest working actors in showbiz - the late great Bernie Mac and Samuel L Jackson as two has been soul stars on a road trip to a funeral / tribute concert of the late great Marcus Hook (John Legend). This is comedy at full speed, it makes no apologies and takes no prisoners - but is also genuinely full of laughs.
Summary: Im not the least surprised that the rating for this movie is low. Im not the least surprised that IMDb reviewers only complain about excessive violence and profanity when it comes to black films(as if they never saw a Quentin Tarantino film in their life!). Hmmmmmmm,interesting. At any rate, Soul Men is a moderately funny movie with some heart. The story chronicles Lewis Hinds(Samuel L. Jackson) and Floyd Henderson(Bernie Mac)two members of the group "Real Deal".
Summary: It's not just a comedy, it's a tribute to our favorite soul men, Issac Hayes and Bernie Mac. Bernie Mac for his in your face style of comedy. And Hayes for his soulful singing voice, and his best remembered as the Duke in Escape From New York(1981), and has the voice of the chief on South Park. It a real sadness that there not with us anymore. But we'll always remember you Issac Hayes 1942-2008, and Bernie Mac 1957-2008.
