Something fun is now on Paramount+, and as a Michigander so knows all about the story of the Michigan couple and the lottery I had to check out Jerry & Marge Go Large. Random fact, Jerry & Marge Go Large takes place in Evart, Michigan, which is the town I ended up blowing one of my tires out in a few years ago. And just like in the Jerry & Marge Go Large, the man who helped me get back on the road was kind and caring.
Jerry & Marge Go Large tells the story of an Evart, Michigan couple who found a flaw in the Winfall lottery and ended up legally winning millions and millions of dollars due to Jerry’s smarts. But this isn’t your typical get rich fast story. Jerry and Marge put a lot of thought, and effort into getting the winnings, and even included their friends and neighbors of Evart in on the winnings when they added money to the pot.
The story is sweet, fun and intriguing. It’s a story you won’t believe is real but it is. If you’re looking for a fun movie to watch this weekend I highly recommend checking out Jerry & Marge Go Large! I watched it three times already and my mom has watched it twice just for reference how good it is!
JERRY & MARGE GO LARGE is inspired by the remarkable true story of retiree Jerry Selbee (Cranston), who discovers a mathematical loophole in the Massachusetts lottery and, with the help of his wife, Marge (Bening), wins millions and uses the money to revive their small Michigan town.
In addition to Cranston and Bening, the cast includes Larry Wilmore, Rainn Wilson, Anna Camp, Ann Harada, Jake McDorman, Michael McKean and Uly Schlesinger.
PG-13, for some language and suggestive references
