All in all, a good flick though. And perhaps even more timely than ever today in the age of the reality show. But do not watch this movie if you are depressed. Repeat, DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE IF YOU ARE DEPRESSED. You may be inclined to reach past the remote for the shotgun in the closet.
Now I know why they called it the Great Depression. And why they shoot horses. Something to do with misery. And good ratings.
