funny this movie was but after watching this movie, it made me think about a lot of things that I am quite sure most of you are thinking about too. This guy just wanted a better life but he had no MONEY. It was only when he reached the point of desperation that he ACTED upon an idea to get that money. Sure his idea was lame and criminal, but he had an idea. Those guys in the movie were idiots but they got away with their scam and the law could not do anything. Here's the real catch, the movie was based on a true story. Anyway, my question to you is how desperate do you have to be come up with an idea and then act upon it? You read about ordinary people on the news becoming rich overnight all the time. Why can't it be one of us? We're all hanging out on this MEM forum for one reason and that is to figure out how to make some money, and lots of it right? However corny it may have been, this movie motivated me. Go and see this movie and you will see what I mean.

I just saw this movie too and it was great! But I would never do that, no matter how poor I am. I was raised better then that and was taught to work hard so that I can have a future.
