One of the rare non-musical movies worth watching for its soundtrack only!
31 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We knew about Lalo Schiffrin, burt bacharach, Michel legrand, john barry or Laurie johnson et al ... but did you know that super producers/Composers Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards (aka CHIC) did most of the score of this movie? Today this is highly sought after rare groove (track Soup for One, which also served as a sample for the planetary hit Lady" by Modjo). Evertyhting that BE and NR touched turned into music gold at this time... Makes this average movie actually enjoyable! without this outstanding score I doubt this movie would have ever got that recall. The music clearly makes it twice better. Interestingly enough, BE and NR did not venture too heavily in film production despite their very eclectic approach to music (which made them what they became, later, producing the likes of Madonna or David Bowie, and so many more). That's why this score is so particular. I've also heard that Nile rodgers has produced a track for the last X-men : the last Stand (2006), from his director friend Brett Ratner. this track is being extremely warmly received in the club scene and is supposed to be on the next upcoming Chic album. Can't wait to put my hands on that one.
