Movie Summary

Get Rich or Die Tryin' is a 2005 drama film starring Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson based loosely on the actual life of the leading actor. The film was headed by Academy award-nominee Jim Sheridon. (My Left Foot, Brothers, In the Name of the Father) The film documents the struggles of 50 Cent as he tries to become a rap superstar. 50 Cent must honor his mother and his girlfriend all while trying to get a piece of the proverbial pie. The film was modeled after 8 Mile which was a critical and financial success, but it was not received in the same light. The Tomatometer score provided by Rotten Tomatoes awards the film a 16% which is extremely negative. The film did make a profit over its $40m budget which would give some fans hope for a sequel. The reception of the film certainly didn't stop 50 Cent from an acting career; he has since appeared in an episode of Entourage and 2006's Home of the Brave.moreless
