My father use to tell me stories about the Bulldog of Bergen when I was a kid how he beat Max Baer to win the Title and how he was loved by the people .So every time I see Cinderella man I think of what my dad was saying that there's always hope no matter how bad things are .James J Braddock proved that .

This is a very inspirational movie to anyone who has gone through hard times, faith is what sees you through, he had a praying wife, always did what was right, and he conquered, thanks to everyone who made this movie possible,

I have been a high school varsity football coach for over 30 years. I have always been a buff of true athentic history. This is my top inspirational movie. The Champ had the will, the toughness, and a wife helped to glue their family together. Wow....just a message for all about the depth of the human spirit.

I've always been a big boxing fan, and therefore, needless to say, i thought the movie was fantastic. The courage and resolve of James J Braddock righty created the legend. His life will always be a source of inspiration. I wish his descendants, all the very best.

Just saw the movie accidentally. I am no boxing fan but could not move till the end.Then found it was real story. Amazing. Went on to read about Max Baer as well. Both real and reel are exceptional.
H P Das - Bhubaneswar, India
Accidentally viewed the movie at early morning. Unable to stop viewing the movie till end. At end only came to know that it is the real life story of a great boxer. Read about him in this website. Very inspiring & motivational. Surprised that he played so many fights in less years. The Director & lead actors portayed the great man's life & struggle deservingly. His wife deserves more appreciation for her behind the screen love and care of the great man

James J. Braddock is a relative of my stepfather's. Love the movie, Cinderella Man, and according to my step family, it was pretty accurate. Wish I could have met him at some point.

Having seen the movie I am reading the book on his life. I was wrong in believing he was not a good fighter and even Louis said he was the bravest man he fought .Rest in peace Jim Braddock you are an inspiration to us all !
