Took my family, wife and two children (5)(10) on Thanksgiving Day. We could not take our eyes off the screen; the children loved the movie. We discussed the movie all the way home.

Acting Skills.......Extremely Subpar, except for the veterans (Forest, Angela & Tyrese)...C-
Singing/Rapping.....Loved Every bit of it.............A+
Overall go see the movie, once you get pass the forced acting from certain characters you actually can enjoy it. Tyrese, Jennifer and Luke James vocals can break your heart or take you to glory. Go see it!

I was ready to leave after the first song. It was not what I expected at all! It reminded me of a cheap version of the movie West Side Story.

This is a great film for the whole family to see. It has a great message and it is very inspiring and uplifting. Great music as well

Although it is predictable, and a little trite, it is about faith, family, and forgiveness so to me was worth seeing. Langston Hughes' poetry, is put to music and rapped which was profound and of course Jennifer Hudson's voice is powerful and beautiful. Otherwise, it could have, and should have, been a lot better.
