|Dolly Parton, Queen Latifah, Joyful Noise, Warner Bros. Pictures, 2012.|
Todd Graff's execrable Christian musical mish-mash Joyful Noise is public enemy number one. A terrible script, lazy direction, and sheer abandon, it would seem, wastes the talents of Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton.
|Katherine Heigl, Daniel Sunjata, One for the Money, Lionsgate Films, 2012.|
Julie Ann Robinson's One for the Money delivers our seasonal dosage of Katherine Heigl. This time around, she seems to be having a little more fun with a bad East coast accent as Stephanie Plum. Janet Evanovich's cute series is transformed into a pile of wretchedly tattered cliches. Daniel Sunjata shows promise in more ways than one, heading a game cast that is squandered horribly.
