Soul Men marks the final big screen appearance of comedian Bernie Mac and soul singer Isaac Hayes who both passed away last month.
The two legends share the screen with acting great Samuel L. Jackson in this comical farce about two surviving members of a 70s soul group (Mac and Jackson) who come out of retirement for a VH1 tribute to soul music.
If the two group members can find a way to get along, they might get lucky and score a record deal.

The 16th Annual Trumpet Awards took place on Sunday (JAN 13) at the Civic Center in Atlanta. It was a black tie affair with dignitaries from the fields of entertainment, politics and medicine gracing the red carpet. The night’s biggest honoree Halle Berry was a no-show because her doctor wouldn’t give her the green slip to travel.
