I hated it.

Absolutely hated it. I cried like a damned baby throughout the movie. It was pitiful and pathetic. Well I was pitiful and pathetic.

It was actually a touching film. I let it draw me in. I didn't fight it.


It was a beautiful story. I don't have much else to say other than watch it with people you can cry in front of.

It's on PPV or DVD.

But I really recommend it.

Nice to hear you liked it, but I'm pretty sure you cry at the end of adult films......

Seriously though, it's probably a bit soft for me. Now, if they would have cast Jason Statham as Mister Rogers.....that would have been awesome.

I cried at the end of "Hobbs & Shaw".

Hater.

It was a great film, especially if you grew up with Mr. Rogers. I was a little too old for him but I remember the shows, especially for my little brothers.

It was well written, well directed, and I spent two hours thoroughly enjoying it and talking with my wife and crying like a little baby.

I'll check it out. I've always loved his story. Asking his wife if he was a lamb on his deathbed always got to me.

Well, the material aside, which is maybe what I find uninteresting.

I won't dare sit here and say that Tom Hanks isn't a hell of an actor.

ETA: Personally, if i want to watch tom on screen while i blabber like a little girl, it's terminal. Great show, but I won't watch it because it makes me feel soo sad.

I think you'll like it.

There was no dark secret to Mr. Rogers. There were no hidden closets filled with leather and whips and ball gags. (reminds me I need to go shopping)

He was the real deal.

An honest to goodness nice person.

No sh#t.

That has more to do with us old fatties having to look at dwayne's chiseled body for more than 10 minutes. Nobody should feel good with their workout routine after looking at that sob.

It's a good cry.

I'm actually resisting watching it, because I know I will cry, and I hate to cry. He seemed like such a great, beautiful person. I aspire to be that kind and generous.

I did the same.

But if it's any consolation, it'll be a good cry.

Half way through the movie my wife and I went outside and walked and talked.

We were skeptical because our childhoods weren't nice. And Mr. Rogers promised nice.

So it was more of a resistance to what we really can aspire to because it didn't happen with us.

My take-a-way was regret.

And maybe forgiveness.

You can't really keep hate in your heart forever.

I agree. I watched it expecting to not like it much but I loved it.
I loved the story, the acting, the cast, everything.

Didn't cry but came close a few times, especially towards the end. I won't spoil it for anyone.
It's nice to watch something uplifting and positive in times like these.

To those reading this, just go watch it. Give it a try. Let it make you cry/smile/whatever. And Tom's performance was incredible.

Only film that made me cry is The Elephant Man (1980)

Lots of movies can make you well-up.

I’ve been waiting to hear what people thought of it. I may have to give it a go.

Your film recommendation is making the virus crisis worse.

Tissue paper is as hard to find as toilet paper.

the way he dealt with his wife's alcohol issue and his son's mental illness was touching. Mr. Hanky sure hit the mark in that one.
