I was expecting this movie to be just as bad as "Resurrecting The Champ" but it was actually pretty good & better then I expected.Im just wondering........After Jamie Foxx played Ray Charles, He started to think he could actually sing.Now Im wondering when is he gonna start thinking he can play the cello?
