I borrowed this movie from a friend who told me that this was a good movie. Actually, I was told by a few different people that this was a good movie. So I watched it.......and I like it.......a lot!
This is a very simple story of a family man played by Paul Giamatti who owns his own law practice. And everyday discovers that life is not hard.....it's really freaking hard. Everyday has no challenges and new problems and more importantly, and each problem has a dollar sign next to it. He then comes upon a kid who is the grandson of a guy that is not only his client, but who he just became the guardian of. The grandfather that is. He lets the kid stay with him until he can go back to his mom. But the kid doesn't want to go back to his mom. So Giamatti takes the kid in and discovers that the kid is incredible at wrestling. Doesn't sound like a good plot.....sounds kinda boring actually. It looks like one of those movies where if you watch the preview, you feel like you already know how the movie's gonna go. However, after watching it, I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised. At least I was.
This is a really really good movie. It's very simple, and it's it's got a real life, great ending. Great acting on top of it all makes this a remarkable movie. It will definitely will surprise you, if you give it a chance. Anyways, check it out if you want......which you should.....yes indeed.
