I didn't like it, but it's so easy not to like it when everything about this girls life is terrible. It's like they took the worse things that could happen to you and gave it to one character, all she needed was to be physically handicapped in a wheelchair. This movie didn't feel real to me, it's like they pushed so much drama that it begs you to feel sorry for Precious. This movie pretty much met my expectations, Mo'Nique plays a mad black woman well...what a surprise.

i was scared to see this movie because I thought it would just hurt too deep, yet it was so well done it's unfortunate it is not a teaching movie to use in the school system. There are bad things that happen to good people I have learned myself, yet this movie was real and actually showed how a higher good can happen. I am glad I finally had the courage and opportunity to watch such fine actors portray the good and the bad. It made me want to be a teacher again.

This is a big movie, this moive is just one prespective of the sick and twisted people out there.. This is a movie i would want too watch over again, im giving it a 4,5/5.

Very strong story. It is hard to believe this really happens out in the world.

An amazing expose on a massive part of society that are simply dismissed and ignored. I found it heart wrenching and inspirational. A must watch for those more blessed with environmental and emotional support normally taken for granted. A very well acted, directed, and frankly depressing film. Sometimes man's inhumanity to man is almost incomprehensible. It's easy to tune it out sooner than face it, but often exceptional people like Oprah, are able to do exactly that. I don't think I could or would watch it again ... but a SOLID 10/10

A twisted story but beautifully portrayed. You feel all the emotions poor Precious feels. Very tragic.

okay now my heart goes out to anyone who has been in this position as i could not imagine the emotional damages of being molested or raped, you have to be a strong person to go on after being subjected to such sick behavior and my hat goes off to the many who have gone through a similar sittuation, but i do have to say this movie really disturbed me like for real. i have only seen it once and that is enough. I mean dont get it twisted it is a good film and very informative but a lil too much for me. i give 10/10

Hay I finally got to watch this movie,I liked it a lot,sad though how a mother can call her own blood those disgusting names,I guess when you are in that situation you have to adapt.yes I did feel sorry for the girl,but she had some issues too,cant blame it all on other people,poor people cant get the help they need so they become trapped and angry at themselves and the world,I was never in her situation to her degree of abuse,must have been so depressing for her to deal with,name calling from her classmates/being overweight/poor/mental issues...and then to try and get out of bed everyday wondering whats next she has to deal with,,,I think a lot of kids should view this movie to see what its like being her for a day,,,then people wonder why kids bring a gun to school and start shooting,,,they might be thinking I know its wrong and I will either die or go to jail,at least I had my day to feel something,,,Anyhoo,,,,,Want to watch another person that snaps?? watch the movie called ( falling Down )....so on a scale of 1-10 I give this a 8 1/2..kinda like a documentary show

How is the Star (PRECIOUS') name not under 'Actors' Names'? -_- That aside, yes this was a great movie that makes you want to cry at some (many) parts and worth more than one watch.

This movie was great, lots of thought put into it. Very very sad, but a very good film! 10/10

A sad and miserable movie - stellar cast, unforgettable acting...I don't know what to say...if I met someone like PRecious in passing...would I empathise or look the other way? There are so many people out there like her and they are hurting, and there's nothing one can do.

this movie was awesome this will make you realize that the world is full of nasty people, on the other hand there are good people who can help you out who can bring love and joy in your life....Maybe its not a new story for people but this will remind you that somewhere someone is suffering......Mo'nique was flawless and that girl who played precious did a fantastic job.....this is such a strange world people make fun of others n they don't realize that they are hurting someone with dere words with dere acts but this is how we live in this world......10/10 highly recommended.... i love this site GOD bless you all.....

I know I'm gonna sound like an asshole; but this was one of the funniest movies I ever seen in my life... It was so sad that it had to be for comedy. I mean every bad thing that could possibly happen to somebody happened to this girl. I've probably seen this movie over a dozen times and I laughed through the entire thing everytime. The dialogue was the funniest I mean how could you cast A Queen of comedy as an abusive mother and not expect laughter. Maybe if there wasn't so much tragedy I wouldn't have found it so funny. Monique def deserved the Oscar. Acting 10/10, Drama 10/10, Comedy 20000/10, overall 9/10.

The book was soo hard to read, but I think the movie does a good job of sticking to the storyline.

This is a really excellent film, it kept my attention all the way through which is more than I can say for a lot of films. I fell in love with Precious within the first 5 minutes and she didn't disappoint. Anyone who enjoys human interest films with a good plot should watch this. I don't know who this actress is but I'd like to see more of her work.

this film was so moving and incredibly sad.. its not often things bring me to tears but this certainly did. the acting was superb and as commented below i also hope this is not based ona true story... one thing i do disagree with though is that this IS DEFINITELY a film to watch when you feel low...not when you are in a good mood..it puts your own life into perspective. This happens in real life all the time, abuse etc from so caled parents...makes me realise i have had such a good upbringing with loving and caring family but for some reason I FUCK MY LIFE UP THROUGH ADDICTION.... i bet precious would have loved to have had the start in life i've had...i feel very humble and selfish to who i've hurt..this film has been a real eye opener..11 outta 10.WATCH IT!!!!
