Social studies teacher Eugene Simonet (Kevin Spacey) gives his class an assignment: look at the world around you and fix what you don't like. One student comes up with an idea: #1 it is something that really helps people; #2 something they can't do it by themselves; and #3 do it for them, then do it for three other people.




  • Amazing!!

    By ChaseRock95
    This is truly one of the best movies I've ever seen. The message that is conveyed in the movie hits deep with everyone.
  • Garbage and manipulative

    By dorfhombre
    This is one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. Competently acted and passable for most of its runtime. The ending is so insanely manipulative and unearned, it completely ruins the entire film.
  • In my opinion...

    By Creator X
    As someone who hated the book, I was surprised. Some parts of the book that drove me nuts, are much more relatable and better in the movie. The change in the end was much better in the movie (in my opinion) If your looking for a perfect retelling of the story, this isn't the movie for you. However, if you or are not familiar with the source material (or just hated it) it's an enjoyable and well acted movie. I was pleasantly surprised to watch it before and I'll gladly watch it again.

    In this world of craziness, bitter and hate ... this movie just makes you cry and say to yourself where is the LOVE in this cruel world.
  • Utterly Inspirational

    By College Chic
    I found this movie to be utterly inspirational. Truly motivating and captivating. Very akin to Selena, if you have seen that or heard it. I love the concept of ‘passing it forward’ and this movie really inspires you to want to do it. That one person can absolutely create such change.
  • You won't be disappointed!

    By Ndemrose
    This movie just touched my heart. I watched with my classmates in a leadership class. The only spot there is needed for crying is when you get to the end. Only downside, I swear! Okay okay the movie was awesome and it inspired me and could inspire you! Love the message!!! I've watched this movie like 3 times and ever time I bawl my eyes out. You won't be disappointed at all! Love every moment in the movie!!!
