    I just finished watching this movie. How inspirational. I have heard of his rules, but never knew anything else about him. Now, I want to read his book! I highly recommend everyone to watch this movie.

    Just had to share! :)

    Read the book, and I am going to see the movie eventually! I have actually tried some of his Essential 55-and they do work. Not as well as they worked for him, but they worked!!!!!!!

    I saw it a year ago and then went out and bought his book. I agree very inspirational. If you like the Ron Clark one you may also like the other movie I watched a couple of weeks ago "Front of the Class" about Brad Cohen who has Tourettes.
    There is also the story "Teach like your hair is on fire" by Rafe Esquith.
    They are both also very inspirational.

    I caught the tail end of the movie and really want to see the rest of it! Does anyone know if I can rent it? How can I see it again? I checked the lifetime schedule and its not coming on again...

    He is inspirational and FUNNY! He's so much goofier than Matthew Perry portrayed him in the movie. I also had a chance to see him speak during pre-planning a few years ago! Love the book and the movie!

    I saw him at a seminar once and he was amazing!! He is just down right fun to watch. No wonder the children love him. The video clip brought tears to my eyes.

    I was lucky enough to hear him speak once. It is so motivational! If you ever have the chance to see him in person, take it! I reread the book from time to time to re-engergize.

    I've actually read the book (loved it) but didn't realize there was a movie. I'll have to look that up!
