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.

A bit rough at the beginning

I was very much looking forward to this movie, especially since it has a great cast. However, the beginning is a little bit to graphic, why not just tell what happened instead of showing it? There are already so many horror movies and computer games out there, showing graphic violence. I do like the campaign though, which has put this movie on the map.

Too long and slow. Could have been a good story but

The main story about the butler and his family was good with good reminderes as to how far we have come with civil right. The actors were good. This movie seemed to want to rile everyone up again and take us backwards. A campaign statement for demoncrats and Obama who has done nothing for civil rights but again reminds us how far we have come. If we had not then there would be no black president. as ussual hollywood took huge liberties with the history. If you are going to say inspired by a true story then at least get your history straight.

This movie was absolutely amazing! It is mainly for those with a higher interest in history and our presidents. It is a very descriptive movie and gives a huge real life example of the way of thought amongst black men and women. Along with white men and women. Those that wish the blacks to be oppressed as apposed to those that do not. And those that are in mutual standings with both sides.
