50 Cent weighed 160 pounds when he portrayed the cancer-stricken Deon. The rapper went through a nine-week liquid diet and went on a treadmill three hours a day, losing his entire muscular frame. He has gained more than 40 pounds back after filming wrapped. See more »


In the football scene filmed indoors at Van Andel Arena in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, the field is actually a 50-yard long field that is played off as being a regulation-size 100-yard field, evident by the yard numbers on the wide shot showing a 40-yard line. The Grand Rapids Rampage, a former Arena Football League team, use to play their home games in the arena and it can only fit a 50-yard field inside of it. See more »

I love family friendly films. In fact I look so hard for good films. Clean films. I'm pretty disappointed with some of the sexual content and dialogue in the beginning of the film. No nudity or explicit scenes but the focus was very strongly put on the physical attributes of suggestively clothed females. Very disrespectful dialogue about women and towards women. This influences people to look at women disrespectfully. A party scene with suggestive dancing... camera focuses often on tightly or scantily clad younger women who are being referred to as b¥tch€s to f****. Scene moves to implied sex. Again dialogue among young men speaking in an explicit and exploiting way about women. Etc, etc. Disappointed this really takes away from the supposed "character and value" this movie is supposed to have. Other than that FINALLY after unnecessary and drawn out scenes with this sexual suggestive content the real story started to unfold.
