So was socrates real or what??? I got the "messages" in all the "bumper sticker" sayings...but I felt so unsure of what was real and WHO was socrates? Was he an old athlete?? how did the girl know him then??I never understood why the kid kept comming back...and why this man was always awake and doing buisness always in the middle of the night? I never felt like Socrates imparted anything more
This movie is another great example of why one cannot rely on critics reviews. I was completely inspired by this movie and will turn all of my friends on to it as well. I read the book years ago and was happy that it translated so well onto film.
This is a movie to be seen again and again. I don't understand the critics' views. Perhaps they are just not at a level to understand the philosophy of this movie. When I saw Peaceful Warrior the theatre was packed and the audience stood and clapped at the end. Many had tears in their eyes. How often does that happen at a movie? See it, and be your own critic!

My initial reaction after seeing the preview for this was obviously that it would be great.After reading all these inspiring reviews I felt better.It wasn't until I actually saw this amazing movie that I realized it made everyone think so much that we could write sonnets or adventure stories even if we had no artistic talent.This movie gave it's audience emotion never felt before.It made us feel
I give a strong performances by Scott Mechlowicz and Nick Nolte who changes his life ground the film in effective drama. But the film is better than it has any right to be, considering the prosaic source.
