Entertaining, important
6 June 2017 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

i watched this movie 24 hours ago and am STILL thinking about it. I loved it!

i had never heard of this movie until it was advertised on T.V.

you don't wanna mis this movie, trust me

i went to the cinema without knowing what great film a was about to see. I saw it with some friends who said that the film got quite good ratings. I saw it and understood just a little bit after that they were right.

this is a real heart warming story that should leave everyone feeling good at the end, recommended for everyone.

a movie that has the American dream written all over, but it works anyway, and it shows what is the best thing about us, it's a strong movie, and it's gonna make you drop a lil tear, unless you're ice cold, but it sure is a winner movie and it shows how winner mentality can unite people, even in times where movies have dismissed God.

in the past several years, there has been an influx in the US box offices of sports movies, particularly footballl. These movies often carry cliché messages and dull character interactions. slamma jama, is exactly the opposite of these drab movies.

this is an entertaining movie about an important topic. It is really great to see that a movie can show an important, and still current, issue and still be entertaining. This is mostly due to a nice plot and story, well thought through, that don't shy away from hard interesting situations and the very good performances from the entire cast.

i feel that the emotion put out by the actors created and held the audience's attention as they battled through hardship after hardship. Overall, this movie ranks an ten out of ten for realism and entertainment.

the use of music is also very good, both the music in the movie and that from "outside". All in all, interesting cast, good acting, story and directing and an interesting topic

if it is at all possible, please go out and see this film. It doesn't matter how old you are. People of any age can enjoy it. The story is interesting, it doesn't get too serious and the acting is top notch.

even the film's final credits hold audience attention.

watch the film, then watch it again. You *will* remember and cherish this film for years to come.
