Perhaps it got cut or it was just rumoured?

You wouldn't be wasting your money on the film, its surprisingly good. I hate Beyonce and had been hearing awful things about her but I went anyways (mainly because I wanted to hear Jennifer Hudson) and loved every moment of it. I actually think I'm going to see it again within the next few days. The characterizations in the film are much more developed then in the musical and are a lot closer in resemblance to the actual Supremes and those in Motown who they were modelled on.

Random, but Lithgow scared the crap out of me when he popped up on screen... his, um, look took me by surprise.

^^Yeah-it was quite...interesting...

But seeing this movie would not be a waste of money! I went with my friends, not really expecting anything GREAT, but I was wrong. It's an amazing cast, and it's got some really good songs. After the one song Jennifer Hudson sang (I'm not at all familiar with the song titles-so bear with me on this :) ) I think it's called "I'm Not Going" or something like that the audience actually started clapping. I had nver seen that happen in a movie theatre before, but it was such an amazing and powerful performance. Plus, the song towards the end (the one the Dreamgirls sing in their closing concert- don't know the name) I think I'm going to have to play at the end of every show I'm in when I really really don't want them to end!!!! It's so perfect for it! LOL

John Lithgow was increadibly brilliant... even in the short minute he was on screen. I did a little lady squeal when I saw him pop up. I had no idea he was in the movie.

I saw Dreamgirls at the cinema three times and I must agree that I have never felt electricity in an audience in a moviehouse like there was during and in the moment after that number. It was truly like becoming a part of a collective mind and then separating from it afterwards. It's an immensely compelling piece of film. One of my friends said that it's even better than Barbra Streisand on the steamboat in Funny Girl. Personally, I don’t think la Streisand even comes close.

Later days
