    Go For It

    Dear Teachers,

    A. The movie is a surprise purely because it’s not a disaster. In fact it has a lot going for it.
    - What does “it has a lot going for it” mean in this sentence?

    B. I have not watched a movie that made me cry this hard in a while.
    - I think “this much” is better than “this hard”, right?

    Thanks a million
