Home Viewing: Joyful Noise

Bottom Line: Some nice gospel music and a sweet story make it good, but a heaping of corn and a mediocre script keep it from being excellent.

The Gist: Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton are in the same church choir. Both want to lead it. Plus, Queen’s daughter wants to date Dolly’s grandson. All this and the big choir competition is coming.

The Verdict: Watch it. A story with some good gospel and friendly to faith is refreshing, even if it won’t win any Oscars. Read our full review.

Be Aware: The film is rated PG-13 for some profanity and several references to a choir member sleeping with a fellow singer that leads to his untimely death. There are only a few brief references to this situation but this silly and out-of-place storyline isn’t enough to diminish the film’s positive message and its great musical moments.
