Trev,

"Pay It Forward" is a really emotional film and quite good. The ending is a real test - I think hardly anyone could resist falling into tears over it.

Much love,
Larry

Kurt,

The film is about a young teenager who has a school project to think of something that would "make a difference" in the world. So he thinks of the idea of doing a few really major good deeds for people he doesn't even know, but telling them that in order to repay him they should "pay it forward", that is, do a few really major good deeds themselves. He is mocked in class, but what no one knows is that the idea is already catching on.

Much love,
Larry

That movie makes me cry every time I see it. I really loved the ending when the town came out to show there support for his mom and how the news was reporting on just how big the pay it forward idea has gone. It's a good one to watch when I "need" to cry.

Talk about a tear jerker... I saw World Trade Center last night. Left me feeling very angry but inspired. Cried like a baby along with everyone else in the theatre.
