Finally someone has done a movie that has summarized the most relevant highlights of the Black American experience over the last 60 years! It's a must see for the current and next generation!

I really wanted to like this movie... it is left wing propaganda. Sadly judging from the previews shown beforehand; there is a lot more on the way. Must be gearing up for mid-terms. Wake up America!! How can a predominately racist country elect a black man twice. The divisive nature of this administration is creating racism.

Lee Daniels 'The Butler

Everyone should see this movie. Children should see this in their history classes and the 30-80 crowd needs this movie to put the Civil Rights Movement in this country into perspective. Whittaker and Winfrey should get Oscars and others could get best supporting Oscars. Screen writing, costuming, editing, make-up etc. It's the total package. The movie was sad, funny , poignant, and the truth seen through the eyes of a black man.

This movie is worth watching if you would like to go back in time with all of the presidents and the history behind the message of the movie. Perfect acting and a Perfect message received. A must go for all races. Loved it.

You'll Laugh, Cry, and See Oprah Disco Dance!

I'm a white, 20-something girl (race shouldn't matter, but yes it still does) and cannot remember the last time I was so moved by a movie. The entire theater (teens to grandparents, white to black, Repubs to Dems) was clapping wildly when the credits rolled. There is something for EVERYONE in this movie (Except your 5 year old. Leave them at home.): Raunchy humor for the Judd Apatow movie goers, Forest Gumpian road trip from a 1920s cotton plantation to the Obama election for the history buffs, Eisenhower/JFK/LBJ/Nixon/LBJ for the politicos, and Oprah for everyone. Note: THERE IS NO OPRAH SEX SCENE. (If you were worried/looking forward to it.) But you will see her get sexy, slap several people, battle alcoholism, and disco dance in front on the TV in a onesie. She was fantastic! You'll Love "The Butler" If You Thought: "42" was too cheesy. "Lincoln" was too boring or too whitewashed. "Django" was too violent. Oprah or Lenny Kravitz couldn't act.
