The Butler

The Butler comes out tomorrow.  Please go to the movie to see this awesome movie.  Reviews appears to be very good.  Lee Daniels and this star power cast is what we have been waiting for:  talent, substance, and entertaining.  Going to the movie on the first day is important.  The media always spot light the top movies.  Get with your friends and have a great TGIF night at the movies.
