Item description for Preaching to the Choir by Charles Sills-Evans Randolph-Wright & Patti Nelson Labelle...
Sibling rivalry runneth over when a West Coast gangsta rapper starts directing his brother's ho-hum choir in this uplifting comedy about the redemptive power of gospel music. Fleeing his irate producer, hip-hop star Teshawn (Billoah Greene) seeks refuge at his twin's (Darien Sills-Evans) Baptist church in Harlem. Te's unorthodox approach may be just what the congregation's choir needs, but he'll have to go through his estranged sibling first.

Reviews - What do customers think about Preaching to the Choir?
Excellent Feb 12, 2007
I order this movie specifically for my son and I've enjoy it tremendously. I think there should be more movies of this magnitude to reach our young men and women to let them see that fame and fortune is not what it's all cracked up to be. Exposing the young kids today into the real world is a reality check for them to get their act together.
Cursing at the choir Jan 12, 2007
I purchased this movie thinking that it going to be similar to the recent film, "The Gospel". The only thing that was remotely similar was the remote references to Gospel music and the storyline.
The movie had potential but the language made it almost unwatchable. By positioning it as a story similar to "The Gospel" the same sort of crowd was attracted--church people--and the profanity was a definite turnoff. The funny thing is that the profanity did not advance the story, it felt thrown in.
Also, the movie did not know if it wanted to be a comedy or a drama or both, the comedic edges were uneven but the tension in the drama was done pretty well.

There is nothing to review because since I bought this item on September 27th 2006, I have not received it. Please if you are unable to deliver what I purchased, bring my money back.
Not exactly a Christian movie, but still pretty good. Dec 19, 2006
This movie doesn't know whether it wants to be a Christian movie or secular movie. From just looking at the cover, I thought I was getting a nice Christian movie, but the amount of profanity and sexual innuendo made it clear to me that I was mistaken. That having been said, the movie was still pretty good. I don't see how a movie like this can make any money though. The Christian theme would offend the sinners and the cursing and sex talk would offend the Christians - especially the deep ones. If this movie is trying to pass as a Christian movie, it failed the test. It does have a happy ending but the movie has no real redeeming value. It doesn't attempt to present the Gospel message in any way shape or form. If you're looking for a pure Christian movie, maybe you should skip this one, but if you want to be entertained and don't mind a few curse words here and there, this would be a pretty good one to watch.
Disappointing and Lack of Respect for the Church Nov 25, 2006
This movie was disappointing to born again believers. I would like to disagree with all of the ones that stated this is it good for the family to watch. Using profanity, inwhich this movie uses is not good for the family. The plot was hard to follow. Too many things pointing to sex: Eartha Kitt showing her legs in the choir, Tichina act with the microphone(showing her thighs, putting mic between her legs, working for the pastor in that type of attire, Zulu talks of meeting Eartha to have sex after choir rehearsal). Young boys coming in the church bouncing a basketball-Straight disrepect to the church. This doesn't leads anyone to repentance but accepting people in the church-No type of foundation. This movie shows profit gain in this world-Zulu working it out Bul to make more money-What about God. Where is Jesus in this. If this is the church then we need to start over because this is not working. God help us all. Please in urgency self-examine yourself!! DISAPPOINTMENT
