Saw it with some international firends. It was a great opportunity to talk about our national pasttime as well as some American history. As a Brookelyn Dodger fan, it was fun to see and remember those times.

It has been months since I have watched a movie and left the theater feeling my money was well spent. This was well worth paying to go see on the big screen. Harrison Ford and Chadwick Boseman did an amazing job playing the characters in the movie. I would go see this movie one more time in the big screen and most likely get the DVD when it comes out.

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.

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.
