I thought the movie was good. I have to agree on the commercials. They have the DVD coming out on December 14th for sale with 2 hours of interviews, etc. I'm going to try and get my hands on one. I thought the last scene where he waited for his father at the gate was a beautiful ending.
Yes, it did show that Teresa was a major influence. There are two things I wished were shown and/or explained more. One, they didn't touch the DEI Enterprises facet. I think that would have been a major concept after showing the whole trailer side of the story. From nothing to DEI. I really think that should have been in there.
The other thing is, Dale Sr. seemed to end up with custody of the kids. Not quite sure how or when that happened (can anybody fill me in here?). But Teresa was shown to really love those kids. She must be an amazing woman on many levels that I never appreciated before.
