Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The larger-than-life personalities of Oscar nominees Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah help to buoy Joyful Noise, a lightweight comedy-musical about two strong-minded women who clash over the direction of a small-town church choir. The friction is set in motion by a surprisingly callous bit of business, in which Parton is informed by her pastor (Courtney B. Vance) that the church board has planned to deny her the position of church choir director, recently vacated by the death of her husband (Kris Kristofferson), in favor of Latifah. Never mind that the announcement is made at Kristofferson's funeral service, where one might assume that even a woman with such inordinate spunk as Parton might be in a state of grief; it's one of never-mind-the-details-let's-get-to-the-singing decision that writer-director Todd Graff (Bandslam) makes throughout the picture, which renders much of the film's many dramatic elements somewhat facile. And there are quite a few elements from which to choose, including a romance between Parton's cocky grandson (Jeremy Jordan) and Latifah's daughter (Keke Palmer), Latifah's Asperger's-afflicted son, or any of the genuinely silly issues involving the choir members. Joyful Noise is ultimately a mess of loosely connected elements that viewers are asked to accept in a particularly haphazard arrangement, but for many, the storyline will be a tolerable bridge between musical numbers, which admittedly are the film's strongest selling point. Thankfully, these are in good hands, with veteran producer-composer Mervyn Warren (The Preacher's Wife) handling the score and gospel powerhouse Kirk Franklin in the cast, and both Parton and Latifah get to display their formidable vocal talents. But it's a long and largely tiresome slog to these moments, which may have viewers making frequent use of their player's fast-forward button. Extras on the Joyful Noise Blu-ray are also fairly slim, with talking-head interviews with Graff and his stars balanced by extended musical numbers and a live clip of the cast and singers at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

Joyful Noise tells the story of an unlikely partnership between two strong-minded women who are forced to work together to save a small town Gospel Choir after budget cuts threaten to shut them down. Music is a very important component to the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Story of the Duelling Divas!" March 7, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Dolly Parton made her first film in 20 years in "Joyful Noise", a movie filled with music, love, young romance and a great on-screen war between two of music's most beloved singers Dolly and Queen Latifah.

The film opened in January, 2012 and became a box office hit making nearly $31,000,000 as of March 7, 2012. Critics and fans of both Dolly and Queen Latifah have enjoyed the movie tremendously. The film comes to BluRay and DVD formats on May 1, 2012.

The story deals with a woman named G.G. Sparrow whose husband (played by Kris Kristofferson) recently dies. Upon his death G.G. believes she will lead the Church's Choir until she is told the congregation has decided that Vi Rose Hill (Queen Latifah) would be better suited for the job. That is when the war starts between these two dames with insults, name-calling and a fabulous food fight scene which takes place in a restaurant that took two days to film.

There is also a young romance brimming between G.G.'s grandson and Vi's daughter that is both emotional and touching.

The music to the film is produced by none other than Mervyn Warren who did the music for the "Sister Act" movies as well as "The Preacher's Wife". Both Dolly and Queen Latifah show off their vocal prowess and the young leads played by Jeremy Jordon and Keke Palmer are first-rate singers. The soundtrack became a certified hit and the music is simply outstanding. Dolly herself wrote three songs including the beautiful "From Here To The Moon And Back", a song she wrote for her real-life husband.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Welcome Back Dolly" September 28, 2011
After 20 years of being away from the silver screen (her last feature film was 1992's "Straight Talk") legend Dolly Parton teams up with the great Queen Latifah for "Joyful Noise", a movie hitting theatres on January 13th, 2012. The plot deals with Dolly's character (Gi Gi) who is married to the choir director. Her husband (played by Kris Kristofferson) suddenly dies and she believes that upon her husband's death she will lead the Church choir. However, the Church decides to allow the character played by Queen Latifah (Vi Rose Hill) to head the choir and this leads to all kinds of rivalry between the two. The choir, once organized properly competes in various competitions around the country.

The music is fantastic and features some wonderful remakes as well as new material written by Dolly Parton, three new songs including her self-penned haaunting "From Here To The Moon And Back" that she wrote for her real-life husband. Both Dolly and Latifah sing in the movie. There are also some wonderful remakes of both classic and pop songs including Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror" and Chris Brown's "Forever".

The subplot deals with the love affair between two young people played to perfection by Jeremy Jordon (a Broadway actor) and Keke Palmer, Dolly and the Queen's grandson and daughter, who ultimately brings everything together.

The movie is heart warming, funny, sad, and uplifting and should be a certified box office champ when it's released nation wide.

Dolly's part was written with her specifically in mind by Todd Graff, the film's writer and director.

Mervynn Warren who worked on the music on "Sister Act 2" and "The Preacher's Wife" has produced the soundtrack so look for that in stores. I for one cannot wait!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed May 31, 2012
Format:DVD
Despite the excellent music, I found this movie extremely disappointing. I have admired both Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah for some time, and looked forward to seeing them mix their moxies. But the shallowness of characters the wrongness of the behaviors just left me embarrassed for everyone involved. The bad boy becomes the hero only because he can choreograph good music, not because he's had a change of heart. We're supposed to just forget about the fact that he stalked and kidnapped the heroine. The ruthlessness of the competition for music designed to praise God is disturbing. And the sexual double entendres in the gospel songs was downright embarrassing. I left this movie depressed at the thought that Americans may have forgotten how to preserve the sacred in anything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joyful Definitely March 27, 2012
Format:DVD
I won't repeat the plot because the other reviewers have done an excellent job of that. But I would like to add that this movie is very uplifting and joyful.

I was impressed by one scene in particular. Queen Latifah's son has a medical condition that he was born with. He asks his mother if she loved him why doesn't she hate God -- who made him this way. Her answer was definitely spot on.

The music is great although most of it is secular music transferred to a gospel choir, much like Sister Act. I thoroughly enjoyed the music!

I enjoyed this movie immensely and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good family movie with great music. :)
