For anyone who's gotten $35 overdraft fees and had their money slip through their fingers to the Big Banks of America, this movie will change your life. Karney shows you his story, in an entirely entertaining, enlightening and empowering way. You don't need to put up with it. Watch this movie, stand up for your claim (even if you HAVE overdrawn an account, $30-35 a transaction is and INSANE amount for a fee), and spread the word. The more we applaud this film and get it coverage, a following, and enough people standing up for themselves, the more we can change this egregious "overdraft coverage" forever. Think McDonald's offers Supersize anymore after Supersize Me came out? Yeah, this is one of those movies that will make a huge difference.

I wrote the filmmaker this email after viewing this movie and finding the power, the confidence, and the avenue to claim back a ridiculous amount of fees that my bank had erroneously placed on my account:

Dear Karney,

Thank you thank you thank you for making this. I have somehow successfully managed to get my bank to refund most if not all of my fees which were unfairly bestowed on me, though recently I had some run-ins which leave me with a $-375 bank account (all fees). The customer service is maddening. I searched online and searched online for some hope, some proof that others were treated this way and that it is WRONG, UNFAIR and in many cases illegal. The reps just explain to you, and then tell you what happened like you're an idiot. I have been fortunate to have had several helpful reps, but mostly, they just want to do their job and go home, and not have to prove to their bosses why a fee was reversed.

Your movie is the first thing that has given me power in a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening & Empowering August 14, 2009
Verified Purchase
This movie is a must-see for every American consumer with a bank account. The film is very informative and lays out logically a strong case after which one can only conclude that most banks are evil predators trying to continue living beyond their means by gouging the uninformed and unaware. As Mr. Hatch discovered, the solution is relatively simple. According to Ralph Nader, "If a million consumers filed a million small claims court actions a year against the banks, the banks would either try to abolish the small claims court or they would improve their performance." Truer words were never spoken. And, people, it really is that simple.
