Candyman: The David Klein Story (2010)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Interesting documentary taking a look at the life of David Klein. You might not know his name but he was the man who created Jelly Belly jelly beans and lived to regret it. This documentary tells the history of Jelly Belly from the very start of it to today but the real key point is that Klein signed an extremely bad deal to help other people and he pretty much lost the company and gave it away for nothing. While the company continues to be one of the most profitable out there, the man who made it gets nothing from it. At 76-minutes there are a few slow spots here and there are a few moments that could have been better told but for the most part this is a fairly interesting film and one that will probably make your blood boil. It's clear that Klein is a terrific, warm hearted guy but at the same time you have to feel bad that this kindness pretty much ruined his life. I thought it was interesting hearing how this familiar company came to be and of course the stuff dealing with Klein losing everything was pretty sad. We get interviews with Klein as well as his family and friends and all of them shine a light on this period. For some reason Weird Al is also interviewed and these "comic" moments are pretty embarrassing.
