Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average In trying so awkwardly to include a little something for everyone, 'Joyful Noise' succeeds in finding a little something to disappoint everyone, no matter what they were expecting.

USA Today Full Review
Average If it weren't for those musical numbers, Joyful Noise would be a slog. More singing and less talking would have made it better still.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Average Praise the Lord for the talents of Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton, because without their comedic skills and saucy portrayals, the gospel-fueled 'Joyful Noise' might have descended into an overwhelming schmaltz-fest.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 122 moviegoers:
WOW! GREAT REVIEWS! Only a small percentage of the adult males and females were a little disappointed. Nearly everyone else LOVED "JOYFUL NOISE." It's rare for a small movie like this to receive reviews this high. So, GO SEE "JOYFUL NOISE."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The small town of Pacashau, Georgia, has fallen on hard times, but the people are counting on the Divinity Church Choir to lift their spirits by winning the National Joyful Noise Competition. The choir has always known how to sing in harmony, but the discord between its two leading ladies now threatens to tear them apart. Their newly appointed director, Vi Rose Hill (Latifah), stubbornly wants to stick with their tried-and-true traditional style, while the fiery G.G. Sparrow (Parton) thinks tried-and-true translates to tired-and-old.

Shaking things up even more is the arrival of G.G.'s rebellious grandson, Randy (Jeremy Jordan). Randy has an ear for music, but he also has an eye for Vi Rose's beautiful and talented daughter, Olivia (Keke Palmer), and the sparks between the two teenagers are causing even more friction between G.G. and Vi Rose.

If these two strong-willed women can put aside their differences for the good of the people in their town, they - and their choir - may make the most joyful noise of all.
