Disappointing and Lack of Respect for the Church
Evergrace Davis | St. Louis, MO | 11/25/2006

"This movie was disappointing to born again believers. I would like to disagree with all of the ones that stated this is it good for the family to watch. Using profanity, inwhich this movie uses is not good for the family. The plot was hard to follow. Too many things pointing to sex: Eartha Kitt showing her legs in the choir, Tichina act with the microphone(showing her thighs, putting mic between her legs, working for the pastor in that type of attire, Zulu talks of meeting Eartha to have sex after choir rehearsal). Young boys coming in the church bouncing a basketball-Straight disrepect to the church. This doesn't leads anyone to repentance but accepting people in the church-No type of foundation. This movie shows profit gain in this world-Zulu working it out Bul to make more money-What about God. Where is Jesus in this. If this is the church then we need to start over because this is not working. God help us all. Please in urgency self-examine yourself!! DISAPPOINTMENT"
Cursing at the choir

"I purchased this movie thinking that it going to be similar to the recent film, "The Gospel". The only thing that was remotely similar was the remote references to Gospel music and the storyline.
The movie had potential but the language made it almost unwatchable. By positioning it as a story similar to "The Gospel" the same sort of crowd was attracted--church people--and the profanity was a definite turnoff. The funny thing is that the profanity did not advance the story, it felt thrown in.
Also, the movie did not know if it wanted to be a comedy or a drama or both, the comedic edges were uneven but the tension in the drama was done pretty well."
A lot like The Gospel

"If you liked The Gospel then you will probably like this movie also! The two movies are almost identical there are very few differences. But, I still think it is a very good movie!"

"I gave this to my mother-in-law who is very spirit-filled and loves movies about the church. However, she was underwhelmed with the story and production value; she felt it "needed something"."
