i liked it
9 December 2003 | by (raleigh) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in when we watched it in Bible class at school. I really liked it. I thought it was going to be some documentary where they have little one on one interviews and bull like that. But when I saw it was an actual movie, it grew on me. Pete Berg was very good in this movie.

I really liked the one really nice guy in rehab who had the wheelchair. I didn't like the mean guy in the wheelchair though.

7 out of 10. ps: joanne is the bomb
