User Reviews

This movie is better than the low ratings that it has received
6 August 2008 | by accountablebillingSee all my reviews

I was hesitant to rent this movie because of the low ratings. I decided to rent the movie anyway. I'm so glad I rented "a good man is hard to find", it was WELL worth it. I love the characters and story line. My husband said it was a great movie. I thought the title of the movie should have been different but oh well. PLEASE do not judge all movies by their ratings otherwise you will miss out on some really great movies. I am also looking forward to watching "Cover", which is another movie with low ratings. This movie does not look "low budget" either. Before watching this movie my husband said that this movie was a chick flick. He quickly changed his mind after watching the first 5 minutes of this movie.
