First class actors and first class idea but not first class script. Still, it is a very positive and fun movie with good values. Movie centers on the members church choir who are going to compete in a big competition. A young romance is treated in a realistic but positive way: the teenagers are in love but a bit naive. Parents and grown-ups don’t always understand the young romance, etc. The romance eventually works out after some mistakes and missteps. What helps is everybody trying to be honest. I thought that part was nicely done. There is also a positive and thoughtful treatment of a boy who suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome. Some of the dialogues in the movie are not very well done, but I applaud the writers and creators for the good that is clearly present in the movie. Some of the song sequences are fun while others are stupid (my opinion, anyway).
