The college football team in the movie used jerseys from the Grand Rapids Community College football team. The bookstore scene also used the GRCC bookstore and included sweatshirts on the rack that included the Grand Rapids Community College name and "GRCC" lamp post banners throughout the movie.

The story line for this movie was excellent. The setting was believable enough to carry as a college background. I enjoyed 50 cent's portrayal of a young man dealing with life's struggles and unexpected bumps in the road. This movie brought tears to my heart. I appreciate 50 and the cast of this movie for putting together such a thoughtful message. (When life gives you lemons....). Even though there are moments where the acting was strained, I still take the movie as a whole and consider it to be great. I enjoyed the fact that it is basically a G rated type movie. I would allow my children to watch it and I would refer it just as much as some other inspirational movies. Thanks for keeping it clean.
