Why watch this film? To find in the actions and voice of Bernie Mac the signs of his impending death. Strangely enough, he seems very much alive. Nothing about him says, "I will be dead in a few months." On the other hand, Isaac Hayes, who passed away a day after Bernie Mac, August 10, is clearly marked for death. What will spook you most are the three or so appearances he makes in this road-trip comedy about two washed-up soul singers. Hayes was a ghost before his all become nothing. recommended
