Name the movie and stars

Deena, talent booker, Lorrell

This 2006 Movie takes place in  "Detroit, the early 1960s. Curtis Taylor, Jr., a car salesman, breaks into the music business with big dreams. He signs a trio of young women, the Dreamettes, gets them a job backing an R&B performer, James "Thunder" Early, establishes his own record label and starts wheeling and dealing. When Early flames out, Curtis makes the Dreamettes into headliners as the Dreams, but not before demoting their hefty big-voiced lead singer, Effie White, and putting the softer-voiced looker, Deena Jones, in front."*

  1. I'm surprised no one has answered: Dreamgirls.
    Beyonce Knowles as Deena Jones

    Jaleel White -- I don't even remember him being in the movie (sad).

    Anika Noni Rose as Lorrell Robinson.

    This post makes me want to watch Dreamgirls again.
