I took my grandson to see this movie and we both enjoyed it. He is 8 years old and could not believe people were treated this way back then. I think he came away with a totally different attitude toward mankind. The next day I went to one of his baseball games and he was stealing bases just like Robinson.

We saw 42 yesterday and I was surprised how good the movie was. I laughed and I cried. Women will love this movie even if they are not baseball fans. I want to go to see it again.
I know a lot of young kids around 10 that love baseball and want to see this movie really bad. The parents have to explain how the Racial problem was in 1947.

Movie was terrific for all audiences. It was great for baseball lovers or for history lovers. It was interesting and exciting. I saw 42 with a mixed audience and everyone loved it !

Both my husband (a yankee fan) and thought the movie was terrific. Harrison Ford deserves an academy award for his role. Chadwick Boseman was so very believeable in his role as Jackie Robinson.
The announcer stated that the Dodgers "WIN", when the home run was made in the top of the 9th inning. (my husband, the baseball maven said that was the only thing incorrect in the Movie.)
Rachel Robertson was a strong, supportive wife and still shows her strength today.

Excellent movie! Not to be missed. It is a great testament to those that had to endure the issues of racism and those that learned to support equality. This is a great history lesson by wonderful actors.
