Us Rating: **

There's a lot to like about this Glee/Sister Act mashup -- but only when its stars are singing. Queen Latifah plays a holier-than-thou choir director who bickers with the group's most popular member (the ever-delightful Dolly Parton) while prepping for a national gospel competition. The musical numbers soar, especially Keke Palmer's rendition of "Man in the Mirror." Otherwise, the 20-minutes-too-long film suffers from predictable plotting and trite, tone-deaf dialogue like "You gotta know when to fold your cards!"
