Film information

Story: Triple bill of musicals. 'Dreamgirls' (2006) is based on the 1981 Broadway hit musical and follows full-figured belter, Effie White (Jennifer Hudson), and her school friends, Deena Jones (Beyonce Knowles) and Lorrell Robinson (Anika Noni Rose), aka The Dreamettes. They're a vocal group from Chicago who enter the famous amateur night at the legendary Harlem Apollo in New York, singing a song by Effie's brother CC (Keith Robinson), and come out on top. The four girls meet the sweet-talking Curtis Taylor Jr. (Jamie Foxx), a promoter and manager who in no time gets the star-struck gang a gig as back up vocalists for the famous Jimmy 'Thunder' Early (Eddie Murphy). The match is perfect and their combined career takes off. Soon things get complicated when Lorrell begins dating married man Jimmy, and Effie starts getting busy with Curtis. When the two acts part ways, The Dreamettes become the Dreams and consequently famous in their own right, while Jimmy's career tanks in a mire of smooth-pop balladry. Infighting between Effie and Deena over lead privileges, as well as offstage rivalry in love, makes for a lot of tears and heartache for all concerned. In 'Grease' (1978), after their summer romance ends, Danny (John Travolta) and Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) are unexpectedly reunited at high school when the latter moves to Danny's town. However, their relationship stalls when it becomes apparent that Sandy is not 'cool' enough to date gang leader Danny. Hit songs include 'You're the One That I Want' and 'Greased Lightning'. In 'Grease 2' (1982), Stephanie Zinone (Michelle Pfeiffer) is the bad girl who catches the attention of English nerd Michael Carrington (Maxwell Caulfield), who eventually wins her heart with the right moves and the right set of wheels.
