      Audience Member The movie is quite enjoyable. I wish the romance between Teshawn and Kia wasn't too abrupt. I would have loved more love scenes with them. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Sizzling...how du i get to watch this movie online. Somebody help!!!! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Call this one "Brother Act." Instead of Whoopi Goldberg's Reno lounge singer in "Sister Act," Preaching to the Choir has a hip-hop star hiding out from a gangsta record producer in his estranged brother-minister's Harlem church. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member a very inspirational film on the same level as the Gospel Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member If you haven't seen this movie you should...it has the hottest gospel songs and the best actors in it. this movie could've have been better, though a part of me wished there was a little violence between Bull Sharky and Wes Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member I suggest this movie to no one. I wish I hadn't seen it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Bob Longino Atlanta Journal-Constitution One just wishes that with the word 'choir' in the title, there would be a lot more top-drawer gospel singing. Rated: C Apr 20, 2006 Full Review Desson Thomson Washington Post A religious feel-good message, first and foremost. As for drama, well, it's a distant second. Apr 14, 2006 Full Review Bruce Westbrook Houston Chronicle Nor does it sermonize at the expense of entertaining. Instead, it melds gospel and hip-hop for a music-driven tale of twin brothers who reconnect. Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 14, 2006 Full Review Kam Williams EURWeb A blasphemous blaxploit! Rated: 1/4 May 24, 2007 Full Review Thomas Peyser Style Weekly (Richmond, VA) Not even the presence of Eartha Kitt can bring this negligible and amateurish work to life. Apr 25, 2006 Full Review Sean O'Connell Charlotte Weekly Filters its lessons through contemptuous twin brothers before settling on the redemptive power of gospel music sung by a church ensemble. Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 17, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews
