The film got a lot of fanfare, receiving positive reviews from critics (with the main note being [[HeReallyCanAct Eminem's impressive acting skills]]) and being a financial success. Its main claim to fame that will forever be in the history books is that "Lose Yourself" is the first and as of this writing only hip hop song to receive an Oscar for Best Song. (The victory was no slouch either, considering the song beat out Music/{{U2}} for the award.)

* AdHominem: A powerful tactic among rappers. This is how Jimmy [[spoiler:wins the rap duel at the end, preempting Papa Doc's AdHominem rap by [[SelfDeprecation acknowledging he's a white trash]] before revealing that Papa Doc is actually Clarence, a well-off lad from the upscale suburbs with a good education at Cranbrook and happily-married parents -- a total alien from such a neighborhood as downtown Detroit.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CentralTheme: Firstly, that you can succeed as long as [[GuileHero you're smart about it]] and [[TheDeterminator you're willing to give it your all even in the face of overwhelming odds]]. Secondly, that racism cuts both ways.
