    I was told not to see the movie, because of the ending.

    I have heard from a number of sources that the movie is incredibly demeaning and insulting to people with disabilities, namely because it implies that there are few options for the disabled to receive care and that death is a welcome release from an apparent lifetime of suffering.

    The issue has received a lot of press in the Chicago Tribune, both in the editorial section from this past Sunday, and in the Arts/Entertainment (Tempo) sections of the paper.

    I'll try to post articles when I can.
    On the other hand, people can take just about anything too seriously.

    Anyways, I saw this movie last Friday. Probably because I was in a shitty mood (couldn't get a ride after movie, didn't buy any popcorn/pop, had a cold, etc) I didn't enjoy it as much as I should've.
    I agree that whatsherface was too 'good' for poor white trash, but ah well, its a movie eh?
    I was dissapointed in the family, they tried too hard to get the crowd to hate them. 'Good' evil characters manage to make you pissed off whether you want too or not in my opinion.
    Someone else brought it up too, but there were no apparent reprocussions for that...she-man...last 'fighter'. After legal issues were settled, the title of the movie should have been called '50 million dollars for mental and physical anguish' baby.

    But like I said, I was just in a pissy mood when I went to go see it.
    Too bad there weren't more montages where she's training hard, those are sometimes the best parts of the film *cough* Rocky *cough*.

    Then whatever you do, don't watch 'The Little Mermaid'.

    Agree with Ronin69, when we were kings was powerful stuff.

    Million Dollar Baby was a total surprise to me... When she was fighting the last fight I was sighing to myself 'oh great, another Rocky movie, she's going to almost lose and then kick her ass. YAWN!'

    But then all that shit happened and totally threw me... Very sad, very powerful... Good movie.

    Morgan Freeman should have had a better character too.

    "When we were kings" was 100 times better than Ali.

    I agree

    I thought it was a good movie.

    I do agree with you on her character being too perfect. There was no mention of revenge in the slightest towards the german man (read:woman) for rendering her body useless.

    Man I loved Ali. I thought that movie was great. Of course Million Dollar was great too. Her accent was generic white trash.

    The boxing was better than the sad display of Will Smith's in Ali.
