Queen Latifah’s new movie, Joyful Noise, opened this weekend. The movie stars Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton as members of a church choir who enter a competition and is about their efforts to update their act to be more relevant to today’s audience. It features a lot of scenes from their small town in Georgia where Queen Latifah plays a waitress.
The two lead singers of the choir of course are Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton, who have trouble getting along and it threatens to break up the choir and their chances of winning the competition.
Keke Palmer plays Queen Latifah’s daughter and Jeremy Jordan plays Dolly Parton’s grandson and they also join the choir and begin to shake things up.
There is a lot of really great singing in the movie and it features another great performance by Queen Latifah. It is also nice to see Dolly Parton in another movie. Overall, it is fun and leaves you feeling good as you leave the theater.
