Dolly Parton is back on the big screen, starring alongside Queen Latifah in the Gospel-driven Joyful Noise. But the country music legend insisted that there is more to the movie than just music and a good time.
The film is uplifting and I want people to go away feeling better than they did when they got here, because times are hard right now. Everybody's been feeling a little scared and a little down, and the economy has been bad and people don't know what to think. We just seem to have lost all our morals and principles and values these days, Parton told FOX411s Pop Tarts column at the films Hollywood premiere on Monday night. People are looking for something a little more stable; people are feeling like they need to get closer to God. So (the movie has) got a lot of heart, a lot of soul. It's about community, it's about pulling together and it's about believing in something bigger and better than you."
The iconic country star through the years, from Smoky Mountain young 'un to seasoned diva!
Set in the small, struggling town of Pacashau, Georgia, Joyful Noise which opens in theaters on Friday tells the story of the Divinity Church Choirs quest to lift the communitys spirits by winning the National Joyful Noise Competition. However, the discord between its two leading ladies threatens to destroy that dream.

Oh no, what are we going to do without our “principals!” Maybe we need more superintendents?
Off topic, but we drove through Pigeon Forge and Sevierville three years ago....that woman has MADE those two burgs.
From a woman who had so many face lifts.... She has to shave her chin.....
It’s kind of hard for me to take anyone seriously, spouting about moral decline, who has made a career out of shaking her enormous breastesses all over the silver screen and stage.
Makes me think about that movie see made with Burt Reynolds.
Glad she got that off her chest.
say what you will, she is correct, there are no morals left in this nation.
Well, she did say the film is ‘uplifting’....
LOL You genius you.
Or more Journalism degrees.
Well, if I were going to lose my morals, I guess I’d wanta lose ‘em with Dolly!
OK, but with a view of your chest and your co-”star”, Queen Lat, being a lezbot, tell us what you’re going to do about it...
She’s another who purposely deformed her face. She looks like a frog now.
A wise-man once said.. Woman who stands on tolit is high on pot!
Does Dolly Parton sleep on her back?
She’s not doing the new “Dallas” series this summer but the rest of the major cast members are at least in the pilot. Read that she wants to do comedy.
I can just imagine the pitch meeting; 'It's "Sister Act" meets "Barbershop" meets "Coal Miner's Daughter"'.
She was such a pretty woman and to see her now is horrifying. I saw the coming attraction of her movie about a week ago - I couldn’t even look at the screen.
Happily, she is still a fine singer and songwriter.
