When Marcus gets his Mercedes Benz S500, he starts playing
his Window Shopper song. He wasn't a rapper back then. This is not an actual goof, as the tape Marcus was listening to was his demo tape, and he was in the car to drive to a meeting with a producer that was going to listen to his demo. See more »
I seen this movie and I think it was really unfair all the crap people are saying about 50 Cent. I thought he did a really decent job for his first time acting. This is just one of those movies you HAVE to see for yourself and not listen to all the hype.I really enjoyed getting a deeper look at what 50 what he is today and hope he makes acting a regular part of his career. OF course Terrence Howard gave a really great performance. I always enjoy watching him. I thought 50 played well off of him and I would really like to see them in another movie together. But really don't let all the negative hype be the reason you don't go out and see a really great movie that I believe anyone open-minded enough will enjoy.
