    Song of the South

    ★★★½

    Nothing is racist about "Song of the South". It's another myth that hypocrite people of political correctness what you to believe.

If the acting (especially Bobby Driscoll's - Johny) and character development were a bit better, it would have been 5/5.

    Oh, and Will Ferrell is a lame actor, but who cares.
