Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"One just wishes that with the word 'choir' in the title, there would be a lot more top-drawer gospel singing."
‑ Bob Longino, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"If ever there was an aptly titled film, it's Preaching to the Choir."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"A blasphemous blaxploit!"
‑ Kam Williams, EURWeb
"The movie has a few rough edges, but the music brings it home."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone,
"A religious feel-good message, first and foremost. As for drama, well, it's a distant second."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"A sappy, redemption-soaked story about two Harlem-raised brothers that is as old as the Bible itself."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"Not even the presence of Eartha Kitt can bring this negligible and amateurish work to life."
‑ Thomas Peyser, Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)
"Both [lead] actors are as likable as everything else in this dulcet entertainment."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"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."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"Preaching to the Choir seeds adequately in the very fertile genre of black films about redemption, but don't expect performances on the level of last year's Diary of a Mad Black Woman or The Preacher's Wife."
‑ Jean Nash Johnson, Dallas Morning News
"Filters its lessons through contemptuous twin brothers before settling on the redemptive power of gospel music sung by a church ensemble."
‑ Sean O'Connell, Charlotte Weekly
