Enjoyable but superficial money's mania satire.
6 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

Ben Stiller and George Carlin are the stars in this nice comedy that try to funny with the success run's of the men. A young finance genius assume on to a Stock Exchange company but only as cleaning man and with a old colleague began to play in it thanks to few information that they found in the sweepings for pay the gambling debt to the old man. He found money, love and success. Laughter and care freeness are the leadings element in this TV comedy, that I must say it's very good also that it's only a TV movie. Maybe with a best developed of the story and a major deeper the final product was more believable and interesting but the two leading character anyway are likely and funny, in particular Ben Stiller in the beginning is very and already demonstrate his talent. For a care freeness evening and for see a young Ben Stiller in a role that if not have the freshness and the humorous of his new product is anyway appreciable. My rate is 6.
