I really wanted to love it, and I didn't. And at the end, it just clunks along and falls flat when Mo'Nique is suppose to soar and bring it all together. For me, it's not an Oscar caliber performance. She just doesn't I really wanted to love it, and I didn't.

The movie is awful...i guess its very real...precious looked the part but never really played the part..if her name is gabby she is a horrible actress..its sad to see a great story line go in vain with actresses such as gabby "precious".

Precious is a decent movie. The movie had strong acting by Mo'Nique and Alicia Keys. The movie displays the kind nature of a women in a cruel world, especially in the rural areas of New York City.
