Movie Review: Precious

Title: Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire

May I say that it's a little weird for a movie title. Is everything after Precious really the title? I'm going to say it's a sub-title, but when I hear people talk about it they say the whole Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire. By people I mean an episode of The Office where they mention the movie like 4 times.
(Also Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters doesn't seem so insane anymore.)

What it's about:

Chick Flick?: Is it a chick flick? That's difficult to say, I want to say some parts screamed chick flick, but I can't actually remember any scenes. So I'm going to go with a no, but then again there was basically no action scenes, no comedy, and a whole lot of drama. You be the judge.

Dangerous Minds was a movie similar to this, but in Dangerous Minds the teacher was the main character. In Precious one of the students was the main character. If you liked Dangerous Minds you will like Precious. If you like Precious you will like Dangerous Minds. In my opinion Dangerous Minds was a better movie.

Final Say:
If you're alright with a lot of drama with some intense scenes go for it. Precious is winning a lot of awards, and a lot of people love it. In my opinion this movie seemed to drag a little at times. Besides that I thought it was an enjoyable movie to watch with my woman. I say you should rent before you go out buying it though.
