Soul Men Soft at Box Office

With an opening weekend gross of just over 5 million dollars, 5th place finisher Soul Men got socked by High School Musical 3: Senior Year, and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa during the November 7 - 9, 2008 weekend.

Don’t despair, because even though the reviews have been mixed, the performance of Bernie Mac has been universally applauded.

In Mac’s final film role, he plays a classic soul man who is called to the stage one more time for a reunion at the Apollo Theater in New York City.

The CD movie soundtrack has some great performances.

Take a look through the track list, and you’ll recognize a few songs that are very familiar.

Rufus Thomas, Isaac Hayes, Booker T & the MG’s, and Sam & Dave recorded some of the original versions back in the day.

  1. “Soul Men” - Anthony Hamilton
