    Kylie, I read in the 11/11 Us mag that his daughter does not appear in the film.

    Regardless, I am going to have to see it whether I want to or not as my 13 year old is completely enraptured w/ the guy. I have not and will not allow her to have the CD - she suffices with what is played on the radio - but she is dying to see the movie. Has anyone seen it? Can you spare me and tell me if it is appropriate for a child that age? (this is probably the stupidest question you will read all week) She is truly a model child and I try to grant her all the special things I can. This would be a big one for her but don't let that sway your review. I have no problem saying no.
    Thanks for any input.
    Watch out, It's a stampede!

    Eminem has charisma out the ying yang. The movie is "loosely biographical", so he's basically playing himself. If he can't pull it off, nobody can.

    Summer,
    My wife and I saw the film this weekend - my wife works at an inner-city school in Denver and has developed an appreciation for rap, so she wanted to see it. Before I get into the film, let me answer your question about whether or not you should let your daughter see the film.

    NO!!!

    I know that if my son was older, there is no way I would feel comfortable taking him to a film with that much foul language, and characters with the highly questionable morals the people in the film have. I was stunned that there was a family at our showing that had three children with them, probably aged 8-12!

    The language was probably very accurate and not out of place. I thought the Britney Murphy character was a tramp. The main character's lives consisted of drinking, smoking pot, shooting paintballs at people, and insulting people in rap format. That said, you could see that Bunny Rabbit (Eminem's character's name, I'm not kidding) wanted more out of life, and you couldn't help pull for him. Frankly, I don't want my kids exposed to stuff like this, but that's one of the reasons I chose to settle in a smaller community.

    I thought Eminem was very convincing, but then I'd probably be pretty convincing if I was staring in a film about a 39 year old computer programmer from Northern Colorado.

    Great reviews guys! I was going to see it but got sidetracked.

    And Kylie, I think J-Whore was both an actress/singer from the getgo.. She kind of just did both and went with whatever stuck. I remember seeing her in Anaconda way back when.

    I don't see those two ever making it work and J-Whore is not nearly good enough for him.

    Blech.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    I have heard nothing but good things about this movie.
    There is even Oscar buzz.

    I hadn't heard the Oscar buzz, Fluff. But nearly all the reviews I've read liked it as well. I think it's the first film I've ever seen on rottentomatoes.com that got 100%.

    I realized that in my post above I didn't actually say that I liked the movie - I did like it. I just don't think it's something that I'd take kids to see.

    Wayner- Hmmm. I'm still going to see it though. So did Mrs. Wayner like it any better??

    Summer- upon further reading, you're right, it's not Eminem's daughter. It's Chloe Greenfield. (Whoever that is)

    I heard that it's rated R in the US, is that right
    It's rated AA here so the theatre are teaming with 14 year olds going to see it.
    Adult Accompanyment does not appear to mean you actually have to be accompanied by and adult

    I will probably go to see it once the younger folks have gone.
    No offense to any teens here, but the teens who frequent my local theatre just don't know how to conduct themselves properly.

    Yes, it's rated R over here, fluff.
