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.

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.

Top Critic

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.
