It was beautifully done & directed.. It definitely had a lot of "Hairspray" similarities in regards to singing & such! I enjoyed the story line very much & could definitely relate to each of the characters. It allowed me to reflect on my own life & what improvements I can & now will make through HIS EYES! I definitely would recommend everyone to see this movie! Queen Latifah & Dolly Parton are a power house combination! You can do & be anything you set your mind to! It goes without saying that you can "Dream A Whole Lot Louder"

We enjoyed the movie very much although we found it to be quite predictable. If you're a Sister Act fan, you'll see alot of similarities. Overall, the music was wonderful and surfaced some new talent as well as confirmed our love for Queen Latifah and Dolly. It is definitely worth the spend. The messages are strong about life in general, the struggles most people encounter in their lifetimes in raising their kids, and most certainly the times where we question our faith when the times become a challenge. Overall, the move was a very pleasant experience.

Entertaining, joyous and downright beautiful. What more can you ask from a movie? Parton and Latifah lead a genuine cast to musical perfection here. What this movie lacks in dialogue, it more than makes up for in soundtrack. If you aren't touched by this one, you're too cold for life. What a refreshing thing it is to experience this resurgence in film making that relies on story, characters and music, rather than vile humor or macabre ghoulishness to put butts in the seats. Plainly speaking, it's also nice to see celebrities who aren't afraid to express their faith in public for fear of backlash or ridicule from the entrenched sociopaths now selecting our video entertainment for us by limiting our access to moderately wholesome media. Simply not true here. This film transcends the "faith based" label and delivers solid and CLEAN entertainment for everyone. A couple of contemporary naughty words are included as a nod to today's standards but see it. You won't be disappointed.
