As a fat old white guy injineer, it amazed me that this Rube Goldberg contraption worked.
The movie teaches a few lessons:
- God helps them who help themselves
- The Gooferment, any gooferment, is not your friend and ain’t going to help us little guys. And may even hurt us!
- Humans are amazing animals at finding away out of adversity
- You have to save yourself; there’s no Prince Charming or White Knight coming to your rescue. All you have are your God-given abilities.
