Dreamgirls is great but whenever Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy aren't on screen, I found my attention wandering--and as with the stage show, putting "And I Am Telling You" at the midway point makes everything after it seem like an anticlimax. Mr. Holmes is a quieter film with more modest goals, and all the more satisfying for it, in my opinion.
