    Early it the beginning of Whiplash and I can live with the adjective fuck but when the instructor said to the group fucking God and fucking Jesus Christ this film did not need my attention. Christians do have somewhat a responsibility to not promote such behavior about our Creator God. I rented I did not buy. I am surprise Medved being Jewish di not mention this profanity to those listening to his reviews. How about one star.

    Great Film! It’s original, attention grabbing and entertaining. I love movies where characters evolve; especially when their evolution comes from overcoming a challenge or opposing force – such as with the abusive self-righteous and demanding instructor. Saw this movie on a flight, with all the distractions and interruptions of announcements and the food & beverage service, and still found myself glued to the story. I look forward to watching it again, with a friend or two. Would love to get other people’s take the choices made by the characters. I agree with Medved on the rating. 3 1/2 stars. See this movie!
