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?
Plot: Two former backup soul singers, Louis and Floyd, have not spoken to each other in 20 years, and reluctantly agree to travel across the country together to a reunion concert to honor their recently-deceased lead singer. Cleo, a beautiful young woman who is believed to be Floyd’s daughter, accompanies them as a new singer.

Soul Men is comedy gold.
It’s not just a comedy, it’s a tribute to our favorite soul men, Issac Hayes and Bernie Mac. Bernie Mac for his in your face style of comedy. And Hayes for his soulful singing voice, and his best remembered as the Duke in Escape From New York(1981), and has the voice of the chief on South Park. It a real sadness that there not with us anymore. But we’ll always remember you Issac Hayes 1942-2008, and Bernie Mac 1957-2008.
The story begins when two former singers Named Floyd Henderson(Bernie Mac), and Louis Hinds(Samuel L. Jackson) in the seventies where in a group called The Real Deal. Now thirty years later, after learning about one of there partners named Marcus Hooks(John Legend), died of a heart attack. Despite a little old grudges with each other, Floyd and Louis decide to re-team anyway. But during a trip that might encounter misadventure. will they make it without killing each other first.
This was funny as ever, Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac are like the perfect comedy team, they had great comic chemistry, it’s a real sadness they won’t team up again. It had funny slapstick, and great music also. Please don’t miss it. Sure it drops a lot of F bombs, and it has some raunchy humor, but it never gets boring or stupid for a second.
Lacks a Heart, But Delivers Laughter, Good Music, and a Cheerful Soul.
*Does Contain Spoilers, Be Careful*
Just to clear things up I am not scoring this high because of Bernie Mac’s last performance. This is a very well written story about two former musicians who travel from California to New York to do a reunion concert after their former band leader split up with them and died years later. I couldn’t stop laughing and neither could the 12 people in the theater. Mac now a retiree and Samuel L. Jackson an auto mechanic reluctantly agree to travel together doing performances across the country. They haven’t performed together in 30 years.
Both actors have terrific singing voices and its hard not to laugh at the vulgar dialogue that comes courtesy of Samuel L. Jackson. He sounds like his past characters in “Jackie Brown” and “Pulp Fiction.” Mac and Jackson who although swear a lot, are portrayed as sympathetic characters. They are estranged because of a woman they both fought over years ago in Memphis, Tennessee. The twenty-something daughter of that woman soon joins their tour after her abusive and dimwitted boyfriend forces her out. He was one silly character who may have stayed in the film 15 minutes too long. Plus a low level talent agent who becomes Mac and Jackson’s manager while on the road. There is at least one distasteful scene where Mac takes an aged bar woman (Jennifer Coolidge) into his hotel room. Trouble awaits him the next morning while meeting Jackson with a different woman.
If the director didn’t aim at such gratuitous gags, and F-Bombs every 5 seconds it might have been a comedy with a heart. There is one scene where the duo dance to the car radio and sing a song called “I’m Your Puppet.” The last scene is the last stage performance which closes the show with just a few text captions saying what happens subsequently. I won’t spoil it. Make sure to catch Isacc Hayes in voice and person in the film’s second half. The only real heart the film displays is a memorial tribute to Hayes and Mac. It shows during the end credits, Mac giving an interview of his life and ambitions, blooper reel, Mac doing a Stand-up routine, voice work in the sound booth, and a nice photo of Mac and Hayes with the words “Dedicated to Bernie Mac and Isacc Hayes.” Both of them shall be dearly missed.
