"Soul Men" starring Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac on DVD Feb. 10th

Soul isn't the only thing in The Weinstein Company and Genius Products' newest comedy release, SOUL MEN, singing its way to shelves February 10th. This hilarious DVD is filled with numerous featurettes including tributes to both its star Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes.

Twenty years after an argument that destroyed their friendship and soul band, lead singers Louis and Floyd must re-connect in order to honor their late bandleader at his funeral. In a trip that takes them on across-country road trip, the old friends are forced to find a way to bring their lives, and their music, back in sync.

This smart, witty comedy stars two-time Golden Globe nominee Bernie Mac (Transformers, Oceans 13), in his last feature film role, and Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (The Spirit, Pulp Fiction) as the soul singing legends Louis and Floyd. They are supported by an outstanding cast including Grammy winning R&B greats Isaac Hayes and John Legend, Jennifer Coolidge (For Your Consideration), Sean Hayes ("Will & Grace") and Sharon Leal (Dreamgirls), all under the direction of Malcolm D. Lee (Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins). Bursting with bonus features, SOUL MEN is not to be missed.

Upon learning about the death of their former friend and bandleader, two estranged soul music legends reunite for a final memorial performance at New York's historic Apollo Theatre. They have just five days in a car to bury the hatchet on a 20-year old grudge.
