Do we feel sorry for a winner?
9 July 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It's an unusual slant on the subject of money. In this case our hero has got to get rid $1 million by spending it within a certain time if he hopes to inherit millions more. What does he do? He helps his friends with loans, invests in projects and more, bets on races, and so on. Trouble is he actually becomes successful, gains returns on investments, wins bets, etc., so he's not that far ahead! Poor fellow. It's fun though.
