FILM REVIEW | Mo Betta Motown
Dreamgirls hits most of the right notes for drama told through song

.. The tale opens in the 1960s, at a Detroit talent competition. A vocal trio calling themselves the Dreamettes — Deena (Beyoncé Knowles), Effie (Jennifer Hudson), and Lorrell (Anika Noni Rose) — fails to win the evening, but they capture the attention of Curtis Taylor Jr. (Jamie Foxx), a car salesman with visions of becoming an entertainment manager. Taylor successfully wrangles a gig for the Dreamettes as touring backup singers for popular soul performer James "Thunder" Early (Eddie Murphy), but soon the women promise to be even bigger than the headliner. And when fame enters the equation, relationships shift and become complicated.
