I kept reading reviews of "Million Dollar Baby" that alluded to its plot twist that makes it totally different from the "Rocky"esque movie you were expecting. Barbara Nicolosi provided a link today (courtesy of Amy Wellborn) to a review of this movie that gives away the plot. So don't go further unless you want the plot revealed.
Okayt, you've been warned. Apparently, here's another movie like "The Sea Inside" that deals with disability in a " better off dead" vein. Read this excellent review of " Million Dollar Baby" from an author who is himself disabled... and doesn't want anyone to " put him down". Read "Dangerous Times", by Steve Drake.
