Critic Reviews for On the One
One just wishes that with the word 'choir' in the title, there would be a lot more top-drawer gospel singing.
A religious feel-good message, first and foremost. As for drama, well, it's a distant second.
Nor does it sermonize at the expense of entertaining. Instead, it melds gospel and hip-hop for a music-driven tale of twin brothers who reconnect.
A sappy, redemption-soaked story about two Harlem-raised brothers that is as old as the Bible itself.
Audience Reviews for On the One
The movie is quite enjoyable. I wish the romance between Teshawn and Kia wasn't too abrupt. I would have loved more love scenes with them.
Call this one "Brother Act." Instead of Whoopi Goldberg's Reno lounge singer in "Sister Act," Preaching to the Choir has a hip-hop star hiding out from a gangsta record producer in his estranged brother-minister's Harlem church.
A great story line. It had some unessesary parts and lanuage though. If you like this watch "The Gospel" It is even better and the music makes for a must have soundtrack!
