The Dempsey Sisters DVD Review

The Dempsey Sisters DVD

“The Dempsey Sisters” suffers from an uneventful script.

After being fired from a job she didn’t like, Deena has to figure out what she wants to do with her life. When she learns that her now married brother (Thad) has become a music manager, Deena decides she wants to return to what she loves (singing). First, however, she has to recruit her two sisters (Sheena and Tina) to join her in her attempt to resurrect their youthful passion. Will everyone want to join her endeavor? How does Thad’s new wife Ava play into all of this? You’ll just have to see for yourself.

If there’s one thing you can say about “The Dempsey Sisters” it’s that it has its heart in the right place. It’s a family friendly story about dreams, family, passion, and finding yourself. Unfortunately, it’s not a very good one. Writer Siddeeqah Powell is the culprit of the film’s problems here as the story is filled with small talk, conversational scenes that needlessly drone on, slight family drama, and a SLOW build to get to the inevitable story (32 minutes to be exact). Perhaps the most puzzling aspect is that there is barely any singing. For a film about musical sisters, one would think there would be songs. Alas, there is only one full song and a short public domain piece during a practice session. Granted, this is a film about sisters trying to achieve their dreams, but we could have seen more singing and less conversations to be sure.
