Good film about the importance of friendship and manhood

"Aw later for you, Leonard Maltin! This movie is GREAT! This is an important story about friendship and manhood. Young Larry Fishburne's admiration of "Cornbread" rings true with any child who had an older friend to admire as a role model. But the outstanding part is where Fish's mother (Rosalind Cash) tells Fishburne to go to the courtroom stand and BE A MAN and not to be intimidated into giving false testimony of Cornbread's death at the hands of the police as the other witnesses were! This scene borught tears to my eyes and a "standing-o" from the audience I saw it with. This scene alone, with the message it gives to young people about integrity, is worth the price of admission alone!"

"This movie stands the test of time. I remember seeing this movie on the big screen when I was little.I was so moved by young Larry Fishburn performance that I found myself crying right along with him during the big tearjerking scene. So much talent even at that young age of 12. It's hard to believe that the sweet kid in "Cornbread Earl and Me" grew up to be the mean Ike Turner in "What's Love Got To Do With It"! One of my favorite movies as a child, "Cornbread Earl and Me" is now one of my children's favorite. The teenagers love it for the violence( angry mob attacks cops,woman gets 'pimp slap' in the face by crooked cop, ... etc.) but I like it because of the beautiful touching story. Buy it, you wont be disappointed."

"This movie is great! I wholeheartedly recommend this movie to anyone. It features outstanding acting, excellent cinematography, and incredible musical scores! My favorite part in the whole movie is the song that introduces the main character "Cornbread." I hope that you enjoy this movie as much as I have and do. In fact this movie has inspired a small Cornbread groupie movement amongst the counselors and lifeguards at a certain up-scale mountain resort. If it has the power to do that, think what it could do for you. Like the song says.... "It's Cornbread!" So just buy it."
