Big fan of true stories

A Film Well Done

Went to the screening and loved the story. I am a fan of true stories and this one was good. It's a little different from most because this was about two brothers who start a company with nothing and turn it into a company with over 300 employees. Many of their friends joined them who had no experience in the industry. How'd they do that? They pulled so many stupid and funny pranks on each other (I guess twenty year old's will do that). It also had a recognizable cast. I remember Ryan Hurst from Remember the Titans and Jeremy London from Party of Five. William Devane is always great. The music is also good (love that .38 special song!). After watching these two brothers build this multi-million dollar company and then get treated very badly by the government (and stripped of millions) made me wonder what they'll do next. Definitely a film worth watching.
