PRIDE (Theatrical Release USA 2007)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

Pride—novel story—provides inspirational focus on what it takes to build a good life. Finish the movie…it has a slow start but a terrific conclusion works the film’s last 40 minutes well. Bernie Mac needs a bit more believable acting at times in the early part of this movie. But Bernie gets better as the film rolls on. Know this is a true story with a little history at the end to show the next part of this story over a lifetime of dedication to helping swim teams achieve.
