Editorial Reviews

MILLIONS (A LOTTERY STORY) follows the lives of six different big money lottery winners to show in detail just how dramatically a life-changing experience can deeply affect ordinary people, and provides portraits of life in very different Americas. From the farms of the Midwest and the heart of the Bible belt to the hurricane riddled retirement communities of South Florida, MILLIONS documents the true stories of people as rich in personality as they are - or once were - in material wealth, and tells a poignant story of luck, loss and redemption.

4.0 out of 5 stars More about the people than the money. August 6, 2008
I found this very watchable, although if you're expecting action and wild parties, get something else. It was very real, and interesting to see that people remain true to their characters despite winning millions of dollars. One group of shared winners all worked in a school cafeteria and nearly all kept their jobs. Another compulsive gambler squandered his millions. I found by the end that it was an understated commentary on what's important in life, because the money couldn't really help unless the important things were already present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great documentary June 6, 2008
I really like this movie. It's a great look at a bunch of winners, and makes you ask yourself what you'd do if you won all that money. I thought it was really funny how such a big win can affect people, and also loved seeing how different people are in different parts of the country. I thought all of the people were fascinating, but I especially liked Phyllis. If anyone deserves all that cash it's someone like her. What a great lady. I love her laugh. People were applauding in the theater when she finally got her new fridge. Highly reccomended to anyone who likes interesting real people and true stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and fun February 26, 2009
I really enjoyed this DVD. Really it comes down to the people and how regular people get thrust into the limelight. People easily changed, are changed. People who are grounded and into their community, stay that way.
