Disappointing
25 April 2006 | by upliftk2See all my reviews

The story line was perhaps not Oscar quality but certainly could have held its own sans the profanity and references to one female character's anatomy.

I admit that I didn't do a thorough enough job of researching this movie before holding a fund raising event for the FAMILY MINISTRY of my church.

I was appalled (as were many of the people who attended our event) at the filthy language and lewd sexual references included in this movie.

I almost literally held my breath during certain scenes as I waited for the "naughty language" lines to end.

There is a supposition that a movie with a title including the words "Preach" and "Choir" would be suitable for anyone to watch without being offended by its content.

I've learned a very valuable lesson about making such suppositions and will be much more discriminate in the future.

I'm saddened that veteran actors and artists lent their talent to a work which displays such a blatant lack of respect of the world of worship.

The writers and producers of Preaching to the Choir could benefit from some of the old fashioned teaching and respect for church and church folk that most of us were at the very least, exposed to "back in my day." (Yes, I am a baby boomer)

If the intent was to draw a younger crowd - and to send a message of redemption, I believe it may have been lost on some who never heard or saw an apology, or even an acknowledgment of the inappropriate language. Saving one weak and nearly missed line during a scene in the church's sanctuary.

You don't have to be 21 to be able to appreciate rappers and hip hop music as long as it story line.

The message may have been lost on some by having to try to filter the totally unnecessary use of profanity.
