I was slightly concerned about taking our 10 and 11 year old kids, because of it's PG-13 rating, but it must have gotten that rating because of the use of N word. There's no hiding the abuse Jackie Robinson took though. Both kids loved the movie and my husband and I loved it. In fact, tonight's packed theater applauded louder than I've heard in a Long time. This is a must see for families. It really opens the door for conversations about racial equality and our country's history.

Excellent baseball movie and one more time how America has progressed but always more work to do.
The courage of Jackie Robinson portrayed in the movie is inspirational for anyone.

Did an amazing job of bringing to life one of the most historical and controversial times in our country. I can't say it's the best movie I've seen this year, only because of Zero Dark Thirty. But I definitely put 42 right up there with Lincoln, Argo, and Flight.

I always enjoy feel good movies but especially so when it's based on a true story. I absolutely loved this movie. There were laughs and tension. I would recommend this to anyone over the age of 10.
