I saw this movie on 4-28-06 at 7:00 p.m., it was absolutely delightful. It showed how one kid's determination can get the whole neighborhood involved. It should be used as a template for getting our kids to see that knowledge is cool. I would encourgae everybody to see it and take a kid or a bunch of kids with you. Perhaps they will be inspired. tfro tfro

We need more movies like this!

Kudos to you on this... I'm glad that it has very good reviews and I look forward to seeing something light-hearted like this. Hopefully our community will support (not bootleg) this film so that Hollywood will continue to make more films with an african american child as the lead, in a positive light that is not deemed a "black film", but caters to everyone. Also I hear that they swear a little in the film... well I haven't seen the movie yet; but I hope it does not deter any parents from taking their kids, please believe they hear it at school. girl
Thank you Nikcara

Boyz N The Hood or New Jack City. Actually, I did not see it on the 28th, I saw it this past Saturday. I think it can win a few kids awards because it teaches good moral values and sportsmanship despite what parents may want.
I saw it this past weekend with my 10 year old [gifted] daughter. When we talked about the movie afterwards, I found that we both loved it, but for diferent reasons. She liked it because it showed "how if you're smart, some people may have problems with you; but if you keep being smart, they will eventual like you." [That comment has lead to several follow-up discussions, but that's another thread]

I liked it because it reminded me that sometimes, children keep things in better perspective than adults.

Funny, I didn't notice any cussing. Maybe, I'm just de-sensitized to it.
