So instead let’s talk about the Dolly Parton/Queen Latifah film by that title soon to be released. Via DBM, here’s a clip of Karen Peck in the film.
I’ll reserve fuller judgment for a fuller viewing, but going by this clip alone, the “Joyful Noise” may end up being a “good” example of big-screen focus-grouped “gospel” that’s beyond experiential resuscitation even by a singer of Peck’s considerable ability.
At any rate, I saw a trailer for the movie in the theater last week and the acting looks to be dreadful and leaden (an inference that Peck’s over-amped stamping about the stage in this clip does nothing to rebut). And of course I’m sure I’ll go see it.Email this Post
