When R&B legend Marcus Hooks dies suddenly, VH-1 invites his original back up duo, Floyd Henderson and Louis Hinds, "The Real Deal," to appear at a memorial tribute at the Apollo Theater. Floyd, who's bored in retirement, wants this more than anything; Louis, a philosophical ex-con, does not. Plus, there's bad blood between them (Louis's wife Odetta left him to marry Floyd - then left Floyd). Floyd begs, Louis consents but won't fly, so they leave L.A. in Floyd's flashy Cadillac with five days to get to New York. On the road, they must get back their vocal chops, renew their friendship, and sort out the past. With Floyd's bad hip and Louis's bad kidneys, will they even make it? Written by

Soul Men Has Plenty Of Laughter And Warmth For The Soul
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. His talent shines in this movie brighter than ever before and to see Bernie and Samuel as a comedy team, how easily there would have been a Soul Men II as this movie will no doubt be a classic. Does contain plenty of harsh language and some sex scenes very brief nudity and some hilarious Viagra scenes. The movie wraps up at the famous Apollo theater with Isaac Hayes and Bernie on stage side by side. I give this film a 10 for having all the elements of a masterpiece film.
