I love Outkast, but this feature film doesn't really work. It's an erratic mix of period piece, gangster film, and musical. Visually, it has some pizzazz and there's some good music, although it's not up to their best work. Still, any fan of the duo, who broke up shortly after the film, will enjoy this enough. Co-starring Paula Patton, Ving Rhames, Terrence Howard, and Patti LaBelle.

VERY GOOD 2006 film with all black cast, directed by Bryan Barber who is typically a music video producer.
Interesting film, with many elements. I've never heard hip hop group Outkast - and some of those contributing elements were a miss with me - but overall, it's a well produced film with lots of enjoyable material: small town Georgia saloon shenanigans, whack gangster doings, romances, Prohibition elements, fun animated comic bits like the talking rooster on his flask, and big stage dance numbers. Glad I gave it a watch.

All singing, all dancing and some gangsters with costumes of my favorite period. It doesn't get any better

A brilliant musical number by Outkast: a man wakes up to sing in a room full of cuckoo clocks. Sublime!
