It's all about the music. That's the reason to see this otherwise lackluster flick. Not the predictable plot, or the cookie-cutter characters, or the insipid insights.
Still, there is one other reasons why you might fall in love with "Joyful Noise."
Call it the Likability Factor. Few actors today are as endearing as Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah.
You can even forgive them lines like:
Dolly: I am who I am.
Queen: Maybe you were five procedures ago.
Dolly: God didn't make plastic surgeons so they can starve to death.
Love ya Dolly and back at you QL.
Thanks for the music.
