Perhaps one of the most difficult trailers to watch released so far in 2009 features both Mariah Carey, Mo'nique and Lenny Kravits in Precious, due out in theatres in November.

Clarice "Precious" Jones is a sixteen year old with big dreams--she wants to be on magazine covers and in videos on BET. Of course, she's also got big difficulties--she's sixteen, still in junior high and pregnant with her second child. But can she overcome her many struggles to make something of herself? Check out the Trailer!

There are two ways to go on this one--one, to herald it as a story of triumph over adversity, or two, to decry it as a piece that has been done several times before and brings very little new to the table. The resemblance between Precious and earlier work like Lean on Me, Dangerous Minds, Higher Learning, and even the mockery of same High School High from the Zuckers suggests that this is a very old theme. Which way are you leaning with this one? Hit the comments section below and weigh in, and thanks for watching!

Precious Cast: Gabourey "Gabby" Sidibe, Paula Patton, Mo'Nique, Mariah Carey, Sherri Shepherd, Lenny Kravitz

Precious movie trailer provided by Lionsgate. Precious opens in US theaters on November 6th, 2009. Precious is directed by Lee Daniels.

all of the sutble weight comments that female made about the movie was uncalled for. I called her a female on purpose, because no real woman is heartless enough to be like that. "having big dreams" and "weigh in" . really immature.

Love how she's reviewing a film she hasn't even seen. Movie critics ladies and gentlemen.

comparing this movie to Higher Learning, Dangerous Minds and High School High is a travesty. SMH.

1st off, even if this was similar to the 3 or 4 movies mentioned, is that the limit on films drawing our attention to social injustices of young black people? How many movies about highschool white kids having trouble fitting in are there? 200? 2ndly, This movie goes way further than Dangerous minds - come on! Not very clever commentary.

The film has no real resolution, so it leaves you thinking, what was the actual point of all those preceding events. For the performances? It's essentially a character study of Precious at a pivotal point of her, albeit exaggerated, but since it leads to nowhere it just feels disappointing. .
