Oh. Dear. God
14 January 2012 | by tinpumpkinsSee all my reviews

What we have here is a confusing mess of pretty young people recorded over, a failed attempt of comedy between Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton...with a soap opera script, and some of the worst acting to grace the silver screen this year (yes, it's only January, but way to go guys)! This has "Lifetime Original Movie" and "High School Musical" written all over it. Those two make a foul tasting time at the movies.

I refuse to write anything more on this film - This is a real stinker.

1 star out of 10. If you liked this movie or you would like a better recommendation on a similar sort of film... check out "Sister Act" or... my God, just watch anything else...except "Catwoman"...it doesn't get much lower than that.

Over and dead,

Fox Rain Matthews
