Good message!

This movie was a great springboard for a discussion about racism with my 7 year old, although I would not have wanted him to watch it without being present to help him understand it. The racism puzzled him; I'm not sure he truly grasps it yet. He enjoyed the game scenes and I secretly went, "Yes!" a few times myself, even though I don't particularly care for basketball. Yeah, we knew how it would end, but we enjoyed the ride, and it made an excellent point in a way that holds kids' attention.

Loved this movie

I’m not a huge basketball fan. But I do love a good sports movie! It was inspirational. It helped my children learn about racism in history but that still goes on today. It opened their eyes to what many people have to go through. It taught about one person standing up for a cause and changing the lives of so many people. To do what’s right not what’s popular. I wish they would’ve been more accurate to facts that actually happened but still a good movie and good music along the way. Also the scenes when they drink and talk to girls wasn’t that bad it does happen a few times. I didn’t have to fast forward normally I do have to during movies for the kids.

The word n***. No sex. No violence. Crude because of the n-word being in it.

This movie was inspiring, touching, beautiful and entertaining... and I don't like basketball. So, the beginning was a little cheesier than the story could have been (made it okay for kids) but he realities of racism were shown later. This movie teaches a great moral about believing in yourself no matter what, and knowing that racism is just plain wrong. Excellent movie for anyone.
