A subplot present throughout the film focuses on Julia's singing talents. Once a popular nightclub singer, she is now a star in the church choir. This subplot provides for several set pieces in which the choir performs, and Gospel music plays a significant role. It also provides comic relief in the form of a domineering choir member, played by Houston's real life mother, Cissy.

Credits are given to Robert E. The role of Julia was written with Whitney Houston in mind, though she had not been approached to star in the film yet. Only after reading the script a second time and seeing parallels between her own life and the role of Julia did Houston accept. Filming began in early January The interior was painted, new carpet laid, and the main doors repaired. The production team designed a pulpit and altar rails that more accurately reflected the design of Baptist churches. After filming, the church kept the pulpit, and the production crew worked with architects from the United Methodist Church to design and install rails more fitting of the Methodist style.

Filming occurred there from March 11 to April 3, with about a quarter of the church's membership hired as extras. The church used the rental fees paid by the production to replace its boiler and HVAC system. Production was plagued by poor weather and accidents. Houston later admitted "in an interview with Oprah Winfrey in , [that] by the time 'The Preacher's Wife' was released, ' doing drugs was an everyday thing.

Later, the cast and crew moved to Portland, Maine , to scenes which occur at an ice skating rink, but unseasonably warm weather turned the ice to water and forced the production to rent snow-making machines. The production filmed in several crime-ridden areas of New York City to achieve authenticity. Robberies were common in the area, leaving the cast and crew nervous.

While filming exteriors and interiors at a church and parsonage in Yonkers, New York , a building a block away caught fire and two children died. The weekend before filming began at the church, an elderly parishioner fell, broke her hip and died. In the middle of filming, a crew member was struck by a car and killed.

The production schedule was also compromised after Houston refused to sing in the mornings. Filming was scheduled to wrap at the end of February, but the crew was still shooting at the beginning of May. The entire street had to be dressed for Christmas in fake snow laid down along the street. Lionel Richie made his acting debut in the film as the owner of the jazz club.

The Georgia Mass Choir appears in the film. The soundtrack to the film performed by Whitney Houston consists of gospel numbers and includes performances by Monica , Faith Evans , the three members of New Edition who embarked on solo careers Bobby Brown , who was Houston's real-life husband at the time, Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill , Cissy Houston and Shirley Caesar among others. Stephen Holden , writing for The New York Times , called the film "sweetly uplifting" and "a shrewdly conceived update", and had high praise for actress Jenifer Lewis and the funny scene where the children in the Christmas pageant cannot recall their lines.

He singled out Penny Marshall's directing for being "consistently wise and judicious", and praised Jenifer Lewis and Loretta Devine. This movie could have done more, but what it does, it makes you feel good about. Duane Byrge, writing for The Hollywood Reporter , also felt the film uneven. Although he found it heart-warming, he wrote that it had a "patchy narrative" and felt the film made Washington and Houston such great characters that it was hard to see why the Biggs' marriage should survive. Too often, he concluded, the plot seemed nothing more than a means of stringing together terrific musical performances by Houston and the Georgia Mass Choir.

Byrge found Penny Marshall's directing slow at times but felt that casting director Paula Herold had done wonders.

He singled out Courtney B. Vance as an appealing if downbeat husband, Jenifer Lewis as the "sassy" mother-in-law, and Loretta Devine as Bigg's defensive, aggressive secretary who thinks Dudley is there to replace her.

In contrast, Caren Weiner Campbell, writing for Entertainment Weekly , found Denzel Washington to be lackluster though the gospel singing scenes were quite good. Her strongest criticism was directed at the screenplay. She felt the script had too many subplots, with the narrative by the character of Jeremiah was "sappy", and was lacking in the "fun miracles" of the original.

She also criticized Marshall's directing for being slow and tedious. She found Courtney B.
