Samuel L. Jackson,
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
This film is somewhat a good film, it surprises me with nice jokes and good old school songs. By the way the voices in the songs are their own and may I add are good musical voices, original ones :D. I gave it 7 * mostly because of Bernie. S.L. Jackson played very well,tough as usual.Nevertheless a film to see with your family on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, a film about friendship,at least the last part :P, friends sometimes find them hating each other,for different reasons, but love finally conquers all, doesn't it ?????. Cool ending! I recommend this movie for the people who don't expect the terrible laugh of another tipical comedy.P.S. Rest in peace Bernie!Loved your films, your are one of the Kings of Comedy
