Joyful Noise (2012)


Queen Latifah
Dolly Parton
Keke Palmer
Jeremy Jordan

Directed by: Todd Graff

Distributed by: Warner Bros.

A movie, with Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton in it, was watched by me two weeks ago, I know some of you are thinking to yourself “Why would he watch that?” But hey, someone has to, so I did and at the very end I just wished I left the job to some other reviewer.

The main reason I even gave this movie a shot is that Queen Latifah was in it, she has done some good movies in her days, but this is not one of them.

The only sure thing about Joyful Noise is that, the writers must really love ‘Sister Act’ (Whoopi Goldberg) especially Sister Act 2. Because no matter what happens all I saw was sister act 2, are in other words maybe the producers were hoping we will see this flick as the new “Sister Act 3”, involving two love birds. Like Sister Act were we are having two people on opposite sides one white and the other black Whoopi Goldberg and Maggie Smith respectively.

Joyful Noise (Sister Act 3 to me) rides on the wings of clichés, and if you are a fan of clichés them this movie won’t disappoint, but if you love originality then stay away, because here the white and black representatives are Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah.

I saw this movie two weeks ago, and you may be wondering, why it took me two weeks to write this review, well it is because of how unnecessary I felt the movie was.

Every Scene in the movie reminds you of a movie or two, the idea that someone will sit down and write a movie about two female choir leaders biff, which was driving a wedge between their teenage children from being together (because of cause their kids fell in love), also driving a wedge between the church choir (remember this is Sister Act 3 so choir has to be involved) was appalling.

I have a question for the writers, “of all the great gospel songs out there, they picked, “Man in the Mirror by Michael Jackson” for a church choir to use to show off their singing talent, why?”

This is supposed to be a religious kinda like film, so why use a song that is regarded secular.

But regardless, Queen Latifah was good in her acting, and Dolly Parton should stick to singing and everyone else in the movie should get a life.
