Critic Reviews for On the One

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (9)

One just wishes that with the word 'choir' in the title, there would be a lot more top-drawer gospel singing.

Apr 20, 2006 | Rating: C

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.

If ever there was an aptly titled film, it's Preaching to the Choir.

A sappy, redemption-soaked story about two Harlem-raised brothers that is as old as the Bible itself.

Apr 14, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Preaching to the Choir seeds adequately in the very fertile genre of black films about redemption, but don't expect performances on the level of last year's Diary of a Mad Black Woman or The Preacher's Wife.
