Joyful Noise stars Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton, which is a wonderful ad about why you should never have plastic surgery. I don’t know what somebody was thinking about this, except maybe ‘wow, we can do kind of like a Sister Act, except with Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah.’ There are so many problems with this movie, it’s unbelievable. Everybody is in a choir robe except Dolly Parton, who looks like she’s in a spandex choir robe. Why did they do it? The plastic surgery is awful. Her mouth doesn’t move. However, having said that, what I would do is skip the movie and buy the soundtrack. The soundtrack is terrific. You don’t care about any more of this. I mean I can tell you other people who were in it, the rebellious grandson, Jeremy Jordan, we’ve got Kris Kristofferson who dies, I think probably from embarrassment, and we’ve got Keke Palmer and Courtney B. Vance (God knows what he’s doing in this). As I said, the movie- half a star; the soundtrack- four and a half. So skip the movie, buy the soundtrack.
