A musical directed by Bryan Barber, starring Andre 3000, Big Boi and Macy Gray.
The lives of people who perform at a juke joint during the great depression are shown. The piano player is also a mortician and another performer is a gambler.
The male stars are also the ones who composed the music for this film. There are many stage numbers of jazz and blues songs and there are a few CG tricks that involve humor. My favorite of these is the rooster on the flask talking to the man who owns it. I have no doubt that this film was created for a black audience, but some white folks can enjoy it too. I'm rating it adequate.
