Awesome Movie!!
21 April 2013 | by unmatchedmusicSee all my reviews

This movie is entertaining, motivating, and inspiring. The director couldn't have chosen a better cast.I laughed and cried a whole lot. Michael Clarke Duncan went out with a bang! And it was my first time seeing Jonathan Lil J McDaniel in anything but I fell completely in love with his look and bad boy character. He is hhhHoootttttt. I watched the movie on BET. It was on for 3 hours because of the commercials in between and usually I don't like that. However, I did not mind this time because I did not want the movie to end and the commercials prolonged it. I was glued to the TV. I love movies that are based on real life events (just not a big fan of fiction). It's just an amazing thing to be able to relate to something/someone and/or to discover a better alternative. There are powerful messages all throughout this film. I truly enjoyed it.
