What makes this movie stand out is its integrity and commitment to developing its characters and storyline with more passion and depth, creating a substantive and compelling movie that sustains a level of interpersonal complexity and tension that is usually reserved for quality movies and avoided by low-budget, knock offs.

Miss Church is laughable (admittedly only in places), the characters are stereotyped and the dialogue contrived and generally unfunny.

In a cramped plane seat and a world of boredom this film did not shine.

Who would think that someone with such stunning beauty and such a talented voice, could actually act.

On the downside, this obvious, contrived, and predictable string of feel good moments, sitcom, and song stumbles over a lackluster debut by chipmunk-cheeked Church and its own unabashed hokiness.

And, will Olivia be able to pursue a future that makes use of her stunning voice?

Craig Ferguson was entertaining and Jemma Redgrave was nice to look at.

Hurray for both Charlotte and Craig in this very entertaining and heartwarming film!

It is very well done, a very enjoyable movie that never gets dull.

One of the most enjoyable movies that I have seen in a very long time.

As this is not the case, it is a bit of a waste of time.

I considered it to be funny, entertaining and with great music.

From the opening scenes you get the feeling of a predictable, low budget, romantic piece of nonsense with the obvious predictable ending.

Entertaining to the last minute.

Obvious, predictable, and fun .

My whole family went to see this and we all enjoyed it.
