  Great movie.

  Great movie, touching and heart warming. It will make you laugh a little, cheer a lot and even cry.

  I almost forgot how racist this country is until this reminded me again. I really don"t think its gotten any better. The movies depicts that life story in an incredible light. The only other movie that pissed me off because of the unrightousness was Brave Heart.
