  • Jennifer Hudson is said to have gained twenty pounds in order to play the role of Effie White.
  • In the scene where "The Dreams" stand in front of a huge replica of their first album entitled "Meet The Dreams", the cover art is an almost identical replica of The Supremes 1965 album called "More Hits by the Supremes". On the other hand, the photos of "The Dreams" on that cover are near identical poses from another Supremes album from 1966 called "The Supremes A Go-Go".
