Movie Reviews

More about the people than the money.
D. Fisher | Southern California, USA | 08/06/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I found this very watchable, although if you're expecting action and wild parties, get something else. It was very real, and interesting to see that people remain true to their characters despite winning millions of dollars. One group of shared winners all worked in a school cafeteria and nearly all kept their jobs. Another compulsive gambler squandered his millions. I found by the end that it was an understated commentary on what's important in life, because the money couldn't really help unless the important things were already present."
Great documentary

"I really like this movie. It's a great look at a bunch of winners, and makes you ask yourself what you'd do if you won all that money. I thought it was really funny how such a big win can affect people, and also loved seeing how different people are in different parts of the country. I thought all of the people were fascinating, but I especially liked Phyllis. If anyone deserves all that cash it's someone like her. What a great lady. I love her laugh. People were applauding in the theater when she finally got her new fridge. Highly reccomended to anyone who likes interesting real people and true stories."
