Was browsing tictok and came across a short clip from "Jerry and Marge go large." Immediately thought of WoV and wondered if anyone was familiar, and if it was worth a watch?

The trailer was better than the movie.

Interesting true story but the movie kind of drags on

I liked the movie. While not a great movie, or even anything special, it kept my interest for the whole movie. These days I end up watching the entire movie about half the time, as I have no problem flipping the dial when not entertained. The casting helped, as the material was a bit weak. An average guy finds a loophole in the lottery system and exploits it makes a great headline but doesn't translate into an action-packed movie.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

They bought lottery tickets and cashed them in. Millions of other people did the same but they bought them legally. Where is the story? The MIT group forcing the rolldown is the only thing interesting at all to me.

It was a nice little movie to watch. I read the article awhile ago. One thing that I didnít quite understand was bringing in the community as partners. Iím all for helping people out but it doesnít seem like anybody but them was doing any of the work. If they needed money Iím sure the profits they made could fairly quickly provide all the capital they needed for tickets.

i enjoyed the movie. It provided escape, stress relief, proved 4th grade arithmetic and systems WORK. They won $27+ million over the time they played and reinvigorated their community by providing funds for building the town's interests. It is a "feel-good" story.
