My wife bought me the movie. I have seen it twice. The life of Jim Braddock is really an inspiration to me. I wish that I could have met him.

I have watched the movies 4 times now and Jim Braddock was one heck of a guy - he understood what he was meant to do - provide for his family and he did that. The best part of the movie (and I assume it happened in real life) was when he returned the government assistance back to the agency..... what a moving moment in the picture and what people SHOULD be like.

I'm a true blue boxing fan and I saw Cinderella man at movies and loved it . Have since bought the dvd of it and already have watched 4 times. JJB has the heart , guts & determination of " a rocky balboa " in the ring and the honest loving father to his children and husband to his wife out of the ring . What he acheived to get to fight Baer was magnificent and unique in boxing history . Fan bloody tastic !!!

I finished watching Cinderalla Man and the thing that floored me about the movie was that he bought a construction company and helped build the Verazanno Bridge. I used to LIVE on Staten Island and used that bridge everyday. Thank you Cinderalla Man for not only inspiring dreamers but building bridges so we can all stay connnected.

I was raised by a man raised in this era. Jim and my dad both prove it was a different time and definitly a different breed of man. Family..... nough said

Watched the DVD last night for the first time, when they started to go on about Max Baer killing men in the ring I had to google your Grandad just to make sure he made it through the fight! What an awesome guy and with such a strong and loving family! God bless from New Zealand.

I thought the movie was excellent. If Crowe's portrayal of Braddock is accurate he was not only a good boxer but a hell of a man.

Cinderalla Man...the 2nd time aound for this movie prompted me to find out more. You should be so proud of your grandfather...and grandmother. They had real integrity. God bless you and all his generations to follow.

I watched the movie and was inspired. Looking into the "real" James J. Braddock, I found hope and inspiration. I see that no matter how tough things get, there is always hope and a second chance. Never give up and never quit on yourself is a good way to live.

Saw the movie, the story of Jim is an inspiration to me and shows me that I can survive and succeed no matter how low things get. Very inspiring.

Keep up the good work with this site

My wife and I just saw Cinderella Man. What a great inspiration he gives all of us. This should be shown to every child to show them what a truly honest man acts like. Thanks to all who made this wonderfull film.

James III and cousin John you have built a great site. Thank you for sharing your grandfather with all of us. He was a great man and his life continues to inspire me and thousands or perhaps even millions around the world. I imagine your grandpa would be proud of your work.

I saw Cinderella Man last night for the first time and I have got to say that he is one remarkable man he did so much in such a short time.

Thank God for those in our midst who show the courage and integrity of a Jimmy Braddock. When I need a dose of inspiration and strength, after getting off my knees, I watch the one and only "Cinderella man".

I was awestruck by the movie and the man, James J. Braddock. What a courageous, honest, and dedicated family man he was. His family must be very proud of him.

I have seen a lot of boxing movies, but Cinderella Man was the best so far, at least in my opionion. Jimmy Braddock is an inspiration that should be spread around the world.
