10I like this movie, my 12-year-old son and 17-year-old daughter. Gospel and contemporary popular music, it appeals to all ages. The film is interesting, not too heavy, but delivered a healthy good news. Dolly has been a long time, I like, I almost forgot how much fun she can.

This is an all-star cast of talented young people, a witty twist, a great, from start to finish optimism.

So then, what is there for audiences to grab a hold onto? Not much.… Full Review »
