Well done film. The “underdog against all odds” story can be tiring at times but this film tells a good story with a very catchy soundtrack. Interesting that the film reflects the journals and diaries of Geremy Jasper, as Danielle Macdonald steals the show. I’ve always respected New Jersey’s grit.

We started the movie and turned it off. What a pathetic piece of work. To me both her and her mom were trailer trash and not worth my time watching.

A familiar yet endearing story of a troubled, young musician dreaming of something bigger than the New Jersey suburbs that both weigh her down and help form her identity. Without better care, Patti Cake$ might feel played out, but strong performances from Danielle MacDonald in the titular role, Bridget Everett as her trainwreck mom, and the supporting cast that round out Patti’s rap ensemble, give the movie the heart to keep audiences engaged in this underdog story.

This is sort of like a heartwarming, sweeter 8 Mile. Danielle Macdonald is incredible and I can't wait to see her in future movies.

"Patti Cake$" is a special movie. For fans of hip hop, or anyone wanting a fun, inspirational story, it is well-worth your time. Cut from the same cloth as "8 Mile," Patti Cake$ tells a familiar underdog story from a fresh, new perspective. With a solid lead performance by Danielle MacDonald and an entertaining soundtrack, "Patti Cake$" is a real treat.
