Critic Consensus: Boychoir rests heavily -- and not always comfortably -- on the shoulders of Dustin Hoffman, whose typically excellent work isn't always quite enough to compensate for an overly predictable drama.

Critic Reviews for Boychoir
There's nothing wrong with being uplifting, but something less predictable would have been refreshing.
An imperious choirmaster (Dustin Hoffman) reluctantly takes a troubled 11-year-old (Garrett Wareing) with the voice of an angel under his wing in this delightful musical drama.
Hoffman, naturally, makes his character interesting in the way that genius actors always do. Yet the film's storytelling struggles to match his level of skill.
Audience Reviews for Boychoir
It feels a lot like a Hallmark movie but that's not a negative connotation. This movie is simple, sweet, and enjoyable in the greatest way.
A modern, American version of < Les Choristes >. Basically nothing would go wrong for this kind of (cheesy) taming story.
Beautiful singing. Great job by the lead. The storyline with the absent father dragged on a little too long. Very pedictable storyline. The rivalry between the two boys was cliche. The movie pacing was good. I recommend you wait for this movie to come on Netflix.
