14 Consensus voice: “A tender, tangy and wild tale in a kooky convergence of music, memory and male bonding blues. And a movie truly about lasting impressions, where you're very likely to laugh till you cry, when not the other way around” --Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze Photos © 2008 MGM. Review © David Bruce

16 Soul Men celebrates friendship. Mark Twain had it right when he humorously said, “The holy passion of Friendship is of so sweet and steady and loyal and enduring a nature that it will last through a whole lifetime, if not asked to lend money.” Friendship should last a lifetime, but isn’t it weird how things, like money, can divide it? This is why poet Samuel Johnson so wisely stated that we “should keep friendships in constant repair.” Friendships, like marriages, require work. Friendships are so worth the effort, as songwriter Thomas Moore reminds us, “To the soul, there is hardly anything more healing than friendship.” Review © David Bruce

17 2 THINGS TO REMEMBER ABOUT FRIENDSHIP Don't flatter yourself that friendship authorizes you to say disagreeable things to your intimates. 1.The nearer you come into relation with a person, the more necessary do tact and courtesy become. 2.Except in cases of necessity, which are rare, leave your friend to learn unpleasant things from his enemies; they are ready enough to tell them. --Oliver Wendell Holmes Photos © 2008 MGM. Review © David Bruce

18 “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one” --C. S. Lewis Photos © 2008 MGM. Review © David Bruce
