Ok first off, I'll say this- At first glance, this seemed like a complete and utter cliché, but going deeper into the trailer it's completely obvious it isn't. IMO, this movie looks downright amazing, and the girl who plays Clareece "Precious" Jones (Gabby Sidibe) can really convey emotion. Seriously, looks great, but then in saying that, it can just bomb horrifically and no one will EVER speak of it again. Gahh, it has Mariah Carey without makeup, so it HAS to be good for her to do that...She can act, right??
Precious Stars Mo'Nique, Lenny Kravitz, Mariah Carey, and Gabby Sidibe.
