I left dissapointed. I've seen better TV mini-series or movies. I've seen more compelling and inspiring acting in westerns. They could have and should haved one a much better job at writing, directing and acting to more appropriately honor the subject matter. I left somehwat dissapointed.

Lee Daniels' The Butler

The story of his life was amazingly portrayed, I cried the last 30 minutes of the film. I wish they would have shown more of his life as a Butler in the White House and not so much liberal Hollywood crap.

Lee Daniels the Butler

The movie was fantastic. The storyline has substance. It shows how DNA does not determine everything in your life. Each member of the family has his or her own thoughts and value system. It shows that in spite of our differences love is always the one constant and with it we can value each other.

What a great movie!

We thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It's also a history lesson for the younger generation who didn't experience the events like we did. It's hard to believe how demeaning and cruel the world was to African-Americans before they were given equal rights.

I saw the movie 'The Butler' yesterday and it's a GREAT film. It's an outstanding mix of actual facts (it's based upon a true story) and fictional storytelling. The acting is superb, especially by Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey.
