A real good movie
13 September 2006 | by dre_slimmSee all my reviews

This movie hit home for me. I went through a lot of the things that was captured, as well as the people around me. I'm tired of these critics downplaying movies like these. For most of the people in this movie, no acting was required, and the movie still came out great.Big ups to TI and Big Boi. That's what it is!!!

And for you so called "Critics," do me, and the rest of the hood, a favor... Go down to the ATL, or any hood that might be close to you. Listen to the way we talk, watch how we walk, just take a real good look at how we function. Then judge movies like this. True, this will never win an Oscar, but the hood loves it.
