Not too shabby
The day I saw this film I was trying to steer clear of doing work my father wanted me to do. So I stayed in my mother's room and watched it. I was at first flipping through the channels then I saw "Prefontaine". I had heard of it so I started watching it. I was going to turn the channel, but something made me not. I was so interested in this movie. I liked it a lot. It isn't one of my favorite movies, but it is good enough to watch. After I saw it I put on my shoes and tried to run as fast as I could. It was a good movie!
