Thhhhhiiiiiiisssssss mmmmmooooooovvvvvvviiiiieeeee iiiiiiiiiiissssssssss lllllllloooooooonnnnnnngggggg aaaaaaannnnnnddddd bbbbbbbooooooorrrrrrrriiiiiiiinnnnnnnggggg! But there's got to be a Gershwinn turning over in his grave right now because the beloved Academy gave its Best Song statuette to a group called Three Six Mafia, for their song called 'Hard Out Here For A Pimp'. Everytime I think about that, it just puts a smile on my face...(cuz it's so damned funny and unlikely!)

Has street credibility but lacks in content. Ending feels rushed. Quick trip into Dirty South rap scene.

I don't have the slightest idea what I was supposed to get out of this film. Was it that a pimp can dream?

Surprisingly good led with a powerhouse performance from Terrence Howard.

The character of the young prostitute played by Taryn Manning(?) was particularly sharp. There is no doubt in my mind that she deserved the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress...but she wasn't even nominated. What a shame.

An effective drama about one man's struggle to break through the squalor of his existence.

Hustle & Flow gets off to a rocky start, the opening scenes are dull and messy - it's unclear what Brewer is trying to achieve. Once DJay (Terrence Howard) sits in the church and listens to the music, things start to come together nicely.

Unquestionably misogynist and yet still rousing, thanks to a transcendant performance by Howard. Though this inspirational story still features a whole lot more compromise than your usual breed.
