Did You Know?

Contrary to the depiction in the movie, proxy contests for corporate control are invariably not resolved at a public company's annual meeting. Rather, shareholders are solicited for their votes by using proxies, giving either management, or someone opposing management, their votes. By the time of the annual meeting, virtually all votes have been cast, and the results are either known, or soon to be know once tabulated. The fiery speeches portrayed in this movie are rarely a device by which votes are determined.See more »

Macro Economics with flair, 5 October 1999
Author: Al Rodbell from Carlsbad CA

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.
