A young and impatient stockbroker is willing to do anything to get to the top, including trading on illegal inside information taken through a ruthless and greedy corporate raider who takes the youth under his wing.
When Worm is waiting for Mike outside Mike's apartment, stickers on the window say "NO ENUS" with both words centered. "ENUS" should have been shifted to the right, as the original word "MENUS" would probably have been centered when the letters were originally applied. See more »
Listen, here's the thing. If you can't spot the sucker in the first half hour at the table, then you ARE the sucker.

A tightly focused vehicle for Damon's charm and swagger.
This film is incredibly focused. There is not one throw-away line or one extra frame in the entire movie. From the first establishing shot to the final line, the production team plays it tight and aggressive. I couldn't help but think of "The Hustler" as I watched, and Damon more than survives this comparison to a young Paul Newman. His swagger and charm and the even, controlled truthfulness of his performance all serve to place him solidly in the game with any of Hollywood's best. Highly recommended.
