Chan and Jaden Smith (Will's son) were awesome in their roles, as were everyone else.

I think I will buy this one.
I enjoyed it too. The only thing I didn't really care for was that they felt they had to create a romantic relationship (however innocent) between a couple of 12-year-olds. The movie didn't need that.

My best friend, her husband, and I watched "Letters to God" last night. I have to tell you that Tom is NOT a crier. However, all three of us went through plenty of tissues with that one! An amazing movie! Funny, sad, and uplifting.

I watched "Crazy Heart" last night. Most of it was a real downer, the music and acting were good, but I almost wish I hadn't watched it.
