Product Overview

Producer John Singleton and award-winning director Craig Brewer bring to life the unforgettable tale of DJay (Terrence Howard), a pimp whose gritty hustle selling sexy Nola (Taryn Manning) and supporting pregnant Shug (Taraji Henson) leaves him wondering if this is it for him. Only when he trades contraband for a keyboard and bumps into his old schoolfriend Key (Anthony Anderson) does he see a way out by laying down some tracks and fulfilling his dream of becoming a respected rapper. When he learns Skinny Black (Ludacris), a local rapper turned mogul, is rolling through town for the 4th of July, DJay plans for the hustle of his life to get his voice heard. Winner of the Audience Award at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, Hustle & Flow is an intense and brilliant portrayal of one man's struggle for redemption and inspiration on life's mean streets.

Reviews
ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review Hustle & Flow takes a cliche and imbues it with new life through the virtues of directorial flair and talented acting. For most of its running time, Hustle & Flow follows familiar patterns, deviating only during a third act that brings the street's grit into what initially appears to be a happily-ever-after fairy tale. Never fear, though - writer/director Craig Brewer respects his characters too much to leave them in an unredeemed state.

Review Sometimes you never really see an actor until the right roles bring him into focus. Terrence Howard has made 22 movies and a lot of TV (most notably the series Sparks), but now in Crash and Hustle & Flow, he creates such clearly-seen characters in such different worlds that his range and depth becomes unmistakable... Hustle & Flow, he plays a Memphis pimp and drug dealer who yearns to make something of himself -- to become a rap artist. His quest for success is seen so clearly and with such sympathy by writer-director Craig Brewer that the movie transcends the crime genre and becomes powerful drama.
