Has anyone seen this movie yet? I hear it's really good. It's supposedly leading this opening weekend, bringing in 27 million.

It's a good solid success story... I watched it opening night... It depends on what type of personality you have... I mean if you go with a girl or just with like house-chylling boyz, you'll like the movie...

Will Smith will get an Oscar nod for this one. He's already been nominated for a Golden Globe.

This movie is a true story of Christopher Gardner who overcame tremendous adversity before finally succeeding in life. Despite his success he has not neglected the less fortunate and he shows his goodwill and determination by helping the needed people of South Africa. According to his biography, I quote:

"Which is why, on this October day, Gardner keeps working those phones. It's why he's already begun writing his next book. It's why he's in talks with several networks about doing a primetime show, and why, earlier this year, he sold a minority stake in Gardner Rich to a major hedge fund. But most of all, it's why he's about to close a second round of financing -- reportedly to launch a private-equity fund focused solely on investments in South Africa."

I'm not a 'feel good' movie type.....which is why I don't go see movies like Coach Carter, or any of the like.

But this movie will move you. If it doesn't, go see the wiz cuz you don't have a heart. DEFINATELY A MUST SEE.
