Cameo appearances by great soul and gospel stars from the seventies to the noughties. Real sharp one liners, fantastic singing and stage performances.

Not a deep Story-line, but FUN!

LOVED it the first time I saw it. Still love it every time I re-watch. Beyonce is beautiful (and young!) - fun to hear her sing gospel, and in a much more simpler style of music. Cuban G. is fun and funny. The O'Jay's are still amazing, with their barbershop rendition of "Love Me Like a Rock", and a fun funky, rap, laid back new take on "Down By the Riverside". Another film which may not have been released in France?

A great film and tear jerker, Beyoncé is excellent and Cuba Gooding Junior deserves an Oscar for his performance. This is a brilliant family musical with an excellent story line

I liked it. Not a particularly complexed story line and it's been done many times before. It made me smile however and had some catchy tunes.
