"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."

Just curious, but does this movie delve into the male vs. female ring a bit too much? I mean that as a good thing, I think.
I'm thinking that every time a sincere person in Western Florida looks up at the Moon that Luna will be remembered, and that is certainly quite an accomplishment for such a sweet little girl
