Great fun, great movie! (by Atalanta51-265-344193)
It was refreshing to go to a movie with good acting, wonderful music and a really good storyline. Dolly Parton, Queen Latifah and the rest of the cast did a very good job. It was great to see that Keke Palmer is so multi-faceted as a performer. Jeremy Jordan was an amazing actor and singer who added a wonderful flavor to the film. I was also really impressed with the fact that there were people of many different ethnic backgrounds and that the movie was about people, not their races. I enjoyed the fact that there was no on screen sex or violence and the fact that the movie was very strong <more>
without it. At the end of the movie people in the theater were all clapping and cheering, with a few tears were added to the mix. I want more movies like this that are done with class! Congratulations to Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton for doing such a lovely movie.
ALL Hearing Ears Must Go to this Movie!! What a Wow MOVIE!! (by sweetmsroslyn)
This movie is the BEST to come alone in years. The entire audience LOVED every bit of it! You will not be disappointment by any means when you see it. Every actor/actress did a superb job! KeKe Palmer should be nominated for Best Supporting Actress. It's her time! The movie is filled with familiar faces and the new ones could certainly be on their way to stardom. I recommend everyone 12 yrs & older to go feel the rhythm. You will feel good about everything when you leave. Whom ever wrote the script & put the cast together did a good job. I loved the diversity thru-out. Trust Me, <more>
If you like music and a Good Story Line, then you will certainly love Joyful Noise!

I enjoyed this movie with my 12 year old son and 17 year old daughter. The gospel music and contemporary pop made it appealing to all ages. The movie was funny and not too heavy but delivered a good wholesome message. Dolly has been a long time favorite of mine and I had almost forgotten how funny she can be. The entire family could take away a message of hope from Joyful Noise. Who knew Queen Latifia could sing so beautifully? This is an all star cast of talented young people with a witty twist and a great upbeat mood from start to finish.I would suggest seeing this movie with someone who <more>
an awesome mix of comedy and music it has a very glee feel to it and Dolly is in top form as is Queen Latifah though they are over shadowed at times by the younger stars. Touching at times and funny too! Jeremy Jordan is best known for the musical Newsies and he adds an enhance essence to the movie. yes at times there is corn in the comedy but you have to expect that with Dolly. This is a great family film if i was rating this as a family film it would get a 10+. The musical numbers are awesome with Kirk Franklin in the cast who could go wrong? Keke Palmer is just awesome as Latifahs <more>
daughter. And Jeremy Jordan is a gem as Dollys Grandson "Randy" Take your family or your girlfriend a great time will be had by all!!
Great! A must see for Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah fans! (by msosment)
Storyline was a bit familiar, but it is presented in a new, fresh way. There is a strong main storyline and other small background stories which link back to it. The stories are touching and show great sensitivity. Very well played. Even though it takes place in the south, there is a rich diversity in the movie. It paints a lovely picture of the new south. Dolly Parton is charming as always. Queen Latifah is perfect in this role. They play off each other beautifully. Kiki Palmer and Jeremy Jordan are fantastic and fresh. The singing and choreography are top notch. Constant flowing <more>
entertainment. Never a dull moment. Well worth my time and money.
I liked the movie a lot. I've always loved both Dolly Pardon and Queen Latifah. I don't know who thought to put those two together but for my money, it worked. Yes, Dolly has had a lot of work done. SO WHAT? She's a sweetheart and still feisty! The plot has some definite misses, it was predictable and cheesy at times, but it was fun! Yes it was a bit of a "Sister Act 2" combined with "Footloose" rip off but again I say: SO WHAT?? I enjoyed the movie. Is it going to win an academy award? Nope. But it was nice way to spend an afternoon. It had me dancing in my <more>
seat and left me feeling good. And that's exactly what I wanted it to do. We have a winner!!
Not nearly so bad as some of the reviews might lead you to believe (by mrsluggy2001)
Yes, the script was mighty thin in places and tried to tackle way too many subjects in too short a period of time the poor economy, marriage struggles, death, teenage angst/rebellion, teenage love, etc., etc. , but despite its flaws this movie provided some fine musical entertainment, and pretty much delivered on its goal of being an uplifting movie-going experience.I attended this movie with my senior citizen mom and my tween daughter, and all of us found some things to enjoy about this flick. There were some laughs, some moving plot points, some great musical numbers, and some fine <more>
performances, particularly on the part of the younger cast members. Some days you are just looking for some softball, "feel good" entertainment rather than a darker or more weighty film. This movie fits the bill if you're in the mood for some harmless, mostly mindless, fluffy entertainment.
evening of laughs, tears and great music (by chare-261-453229)
Before going to this show I thought "Another movie where a music contest saves the day - we have all seen a few of these". This was one of the better ones because the music was great - these guys could really sing. There was enough variety in the music that it stayed fresh. I was surprised that the relationships between the characters was the main focus of the movie. This movie had a lot of laughs because Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah are so funny. Through all the songs and laughs there is also serious material - death of spouse, unemployment, single motherhood, Asperger syndrome, <more>
first love...the list goes on. Definitely and entertaining show.
