They say timing is everything. I guess we have it. Tonight we went to see "Dream Girls." We decided to do it all the way so we headed to the Carmike Theater at Tanglewood Mall so we could see Dream Girls in one of the "theater" style rooms with digital projection. The tickets for two were $16.50 but the experience was well worth it.
As we were walking out of the movie this evening, we tried to guess what awards the movie would win. It was truly a spectacular movie with wonderful acting and fantastic music.
By the time we got home, they had already won two Golden Globes. We got to see the award for best picture, musical or comedy.
According to the Washington Post, Dream Girls, walked away with three awards.
"Dreamgirls" solidified its Academy Awards prospects Monday with three Golden Globes, including best musical or comedy and acting honors for supporting players Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Hudson.
I don't think anyone who goes to see Dream Girls will be disappointed. The characters draw you into the movie while the music carries you along. It's a great trip. There was just enough dialog to keep things strung together. The movie is a very uplifting one. It will be come a classic. It's one that I will be buying for my collection.
There were only six of us in the audience tonight. I imagine that will be different tomorrow.
