Has anyone seen this? I just saw it last night, and I must admit that I definately got my moneys worth. Great movie, great story. Truly inspirational.

You definately should. I went to the movies expecting to see a good flim, and instead I saw a great one. I definately suggest you watch it.

I heard Oher himself is boycotting it, which gives me pause.  I'm not exactly sure why

I enjoyed the book, and plan to see it soon. Mike Lewis is a very good writer.

I'd be interested in knowing why also

I heard hes not boycotting but he is upset that they made him extra dumb especially in regards to his football IQ

Yup, he wasn't too happy that they showed his technique and knoweledge at sloppy. He mentioned how he'd been playing football since junior high.

But they always mess with the story some. They also left out how he used correspondent courses to pump up his GPA so he could become eligible.
