No Surprise, Just Very Sad
14 January 2007 | by jurisdoctorjscSee all my reviews

The only thing wrong with this documentary is that is didn't follow Ted around a little bit longer. If it would have, I am almost certain he would have ended up back on the streets.

It's like he really didn't believe he deserved the money, and he could not cope with the responsibilities of it. He needed a great deal of guidance and therapy.

It was certainly nice of him to buy his friend a car, but he could have just as easily given him $5,000.00 and said, "Go buy a car." Instead of taking on the entire $11K ...BUT WHEN HE PURCHASED HIS OWN $35,000.00 vehicle, I KNEW then it as all over. I thought, there Ted goes-- back to life under the bridge.

Saddest part was his sisters seemed so willing to help without wanting any thing from him, but he kept accusing them-- saying "Everybody wants something from me." Dumbo...your sisters only wanted you to succeed. And, this 100K, was the beginning of what could have been a life changing event, instead of a six month party, carefree, I'll spend what I want, when I want, type of sad experience.

What a shame. Truly.
