Summary: Thoroughly enjoyed this musical. Good acting...really good singing...life issues such as the economy and aspergers...Great songs including 3 by Dolly Parton - yep, the last one lifts the rafters.
Summary: I only rented this because it has Dolly Parton in it, it basically is NOT a good film. Even Dolly couldn't save it! It was predictable, went on for way longer than necessary and Queen Latifah's character was so unlikeable it was off putting. Also, considering the fact the movie was about a church choir, there was a lot of un-church like behaviour!!
Summary: This is a typical Sunday afternoon film, you would be disappointed if you settle down on a Friday/Saturday night to watch. Having said that it is enjoyable if you look past some of the poor acting; especially from Dolly who at times forgets that even if you have no lines your still meant to act.
Summary: Loved it for the music, especially Keke Palmer's fabulous Man in the Mirror. Story's fairly corny but has some sweet moments, so no wonder it got brutalized by critics. You got to love gospel and feeling uplifted. Good for Queen Latifah championing this project. And interesting how it spotlight our troubled economic times.
Summary: Angels: This movie is entertaining. If I was going to pigeon-hole this show, I would call it a musical/musical comedy. Perhaps the most important ingredient then, is the music. And the music was very enjoyable-uplifting, vibrant, pulsating, tuneful gospel music. The movie is worth the price of admission just for the music!
Summary: I would have enjoyed this movie more if they had better writers and got rid of Parton who didn't really do much anyways. My biggest problem is that they tried preachIng about goD every other scene which gets very annoying I would understand once or twice. The music was ok.
Summary: The singing in this film is what makes it good. The story is fun but some points could use some work. Loved the interaction between Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton, especially during the fight scene in the restaurant.
Summary: I like this movie, my 12-year-old son and 17-year-old daughter. Gospel and contemporary popular music, it appeals to all ages. The film is interesting, not too heavy, but delivered a healthy good news. Dolly has been a long time, I like, I almost forgot how much fun she can. Hope for the whole family can take away the noise from the joy of the message. Who knows the Queen Latifia can sing so wonderful?
