Comments: If I didn't think this film did a disservice to the country by making lite of the disasters contained within, I'd give it a higher score. It's paced well, and acted very well. It does help you understand what went down during the financial meltdown of 2008. And I actually liked the spoofing about bits (some random celebrity, like Anna Nicole-Smith naked in a bubble bath, explain the finer points of an issue such as a Credit Default Swap), and understand why the director went with them. Something bugged me tho. Everyone should watch this movie.

Summary: Four outsiders in the world of high-finance who predicted the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000s decide to take on the big banks for their lack of foresight and greed.
