Here's the deal: It's real, it's heavy, and it's inspirational, but NOT
AT ALL cheesy. Don't like that? Don't see it. I won't say much else. I
will say that Will Smith was shockingly good now that he's paid his
dues with "Men in Black" and "Bad Boys."
I was very happy that this film never got political and blamed Reagan for the number of "down on their luck" people that were shown, nor was the race card ever pulled out. It was also refreshing that Smith's character never blamed anybody for his troubles.
It's very funny at parts, but be prepared for some serious drama. In no ways is it cliché or contrived or boring. Let's just say that's it not Oliver Stone dramatic. This truly is a must see. To say "I laughed, I cried" would be really lame. It is the truth, though.
We know that Scorsese's crowning achievement "The Departed" is going to take the cake at the Oscars, and I won't be complaining. But this movie deserves to be experienced and taken in by the masses.
