Cinderella Man Movie Review by Lisa (7/26/2007)

James J. Braddock was a true hero of the great depression; back in a time when being heavy weight champion of the world really meant something he gave hope to millions of Americans.

Ron Howard did a stunning job on this movie and I have nothing but praise for the performances by Giamatti, Crowe and Zellweger.

Cinderella Man Movie Review by Rodney (1/13/2006)

CINDERELLA MAN is the true story of a boxing champ, James J. Braddock; a boxer during the early 1930's whose heart and determination would help him survive the effects of the Great Depression.

Braddock (played by the very talented Russel Crowe) is a, more than average, boxer. He has a beautiful wife (Renee Zellweger) whom...
