In the final performance of Joyful, Joyful, as the camera crane hovers over the act then changes to a shot of Whoopi Goldberg conducting and dancing with the group you can clearly see a camera move into the dancers behind Whoopi before it cuts to the next shot. See more »
I just love to read some of the negative comments on a film like this. This is a movie about a Las Vegas headliner who is called to help deal with unruly kids at a Catholic school. You were expecting maybe Schindler's List? When did it become such a crime just to enjoy a delightful movie packed with talent all geared toward entertainment?
And what talent. Whoopi Goldberg, Lauryn Hill, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kathy Najimy, Maggie Smith, James Coburn, Michael Jeter, and more. It's adorable and it handily meets its goal of being entertaining. All I can say is that I pity people who have become so jaded, or are so concerned with being cool, that they can't enjoy such a funny and charming film.
