The small town of Pacashau, Georgia, has fallen on hard times, but the people are counting on the Divinity Church Choir to lift their spirits by winning the National Joyful Noise Competition. The choir has always known how to sing in harmony, but the discord between its two leading ladies now threatens to tear them apart. Their newly appointed director, Vi Rose Hill (Latifah), stubbornly wants to stick with their tried-and-true traditional style, while the fiery G.G. Sparrow (Parton) thinks tried-and-true translates to tired-and-old. Shaking things up even more is the arrival of G.G.'s rebellious grandson, Randy (Jeremy Jordan). Randy has an ear for music, but he also has an eye for Vi Rose's beautiful and talented daughter, Olivia (Keke Palmer). If these two strong-willed women can put aside their differences for the good of the people in their town, they--and their choir--may make the most joyful noise of all.
been there seen that
If you like Glee, Sister act and any number of feel good movies with nice songs then this movie is for you.
great tunes, jofully sung, it seems everyone was having fun when they made it.
Sad about Dolly's lips but applaud her bravery when it's highlighted during an argument with Latifah.
Nothing particularly memorable and even had to look up the plot summary to remember it.
Cliched from start to finish
But if you can stick with this movie through the first 40 minutes you'll see some wonderful performances from the young actors and favorites such as Dolly being Dolly and Queen Latifa telling her 'daughter' a few facts in the hotel are good. There's a solider returned from Iraq, a couple of token Chinese actors, an unlikely quarrel between the lead characters etcetera but some moving songs belted out were worth waiting for...almost.
Better then expected
I really enjoyed it!
