If you have made it, this could be a lesson..
21 May 2009 | by user-9422See all my reviews

This movie was very pertinent to me; not because I have bratty kids but because as a man who came from nothing and made a reasonable amount of money, the thought is always in the back of your mind that you could do it again. Easily. Hell, with my experience and brilliance maybe in half the time..

I watched this film in awe. The lack of success in doing it again is truly breathtaking! It honestly made me think long and hard about what I had and what I had achieved, and that my best plan was HOLDING ON TO IT!!!

I thought it was well acted and extremely entertaining, although one could say the end was a tad predictable, but good fare nevertheless.

And for all of you out there who consider yourselves, as I did, self made marvels, its a lead balloon. A good one..
