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.

My husband is a complete baseball fanatic. He collects memorabilla and knows more baseball trivia than anyone I know. So I knew when we saw the previews that we would be going to see 42. We loved it! It was so well done. The statistics and trivia even held my attention. And I was tired and did NOT fall asleep!!!!
Go see it!!!!

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 loved this film. The acting was superb. I cried during this movie and became angry, too. This movie is for all ages. Jackie Robinson was a great leader......and a great player of America's favorite pastime.

42 was a very good, well acted film. Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford I thought were both excellent, more so Boseman because he's an unknown and I would expect a great performance from Ford. The only complaint I have about the movie is it's a little slow moving. I took my 11 yr old daughter because she was dying to see it and she really enjoyed it, and think it was good for her to see how terrible racism was and how amazing a person Jackie Robinson was to overcome it.
