About the Movie

When slick-talking New York City advertising executive Darrin Fox travels back to his small hometown in Georgia to claim the inheritance his aunt Sally left him, he finds he must fulfill her last wish before he can collect -- create a gospel choir and lead it to success. But with a town full of tin ears and a shortage of singers, Darrin is about ready to give up and head back to the city where he belongs-until he runs into Lilly. A beautiful nightclub singer with a voice that could rock the competition at the annual Gospel Explosion, Lilly is just the miracle Darrin is looking for... if he can persuade her to sing.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The music is glorious. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 1, 2003

Rotten: A messy, sprawling family barbecue of a movie that barely gets by on salesmanship, energy and maybe more than a little chicanery. – Gene Seymour, Newsday, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A raucous gospel comedy that's as broad as co-star Beyonce Knowles' vowels and chockablock with foot-stomping, up-with-the-choir music that will have even atheists praising the Lord. – Jack Mathews, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The only real question in this flaccid narrative ... is when everybody will stop talking and start singing again. – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010
