The building was demolished in 2003 for commercial and residential development. See more »

Macro Economics with flair
5 October 1999 | by (Carlsbad CA) – See all my reviews

I bought this used Video and waited months before bothering to see what I had expected to be a hackneyed stereotypical flick. What a delightful surprise. It is easy to produce a film that is pedantic, or to the other extreme, ridiculous- but to combine engaging characters, biting humor and realistic representation of economic forces is a rare feat.

You could study Shumpeter's "Economic theory of Creative Destruction of Obsolete Forms of Production," but you will not get a better illustration of the process than what is presented in this movie. DiVito portrayed the perfect balance of greed, and humanity as the Wall Street mogul. Penelope Ann Miller played the sharp, voluptious antaganist to perfection.

This film is a rare nugget of intelligent entertainment that stands out in the sea of juvenilia.
