In a scene where Gordon Gekko and Jake Moore are riding in a cab, it shows the cab driving for quite a long time before showing the meter, which only reads $2.90. Given that New York cab meters start at $2.50 and would increase to $2.90 after only 1/5 of a mile, it is apparent that the meter was either not really running or shot at a different time in the cab ride than was shown in the movie.

The first twenty minutes were very promising.Then it got boring. Extremely boring.There just isn't any plot.Gekko getting together with his daughter maybe was touching for a moment.But the girl crying all the time got on my nerves.She is supposed to be an adult. In stead she is acting like a little child. I like Shia,but what on earth was he representing. At least Charlie Sheen as Bud Fox had a clear objective.(Speaking of which,his cameo as the guy we know from Two and a half men is so in contrast of the character Bud Fox that completely diminishes the first movie.I could not believe that they would make a parody of his role). Shia was a guy who was ambitious but stuck with his green energy project.While any men or woman with common sense would bail on it.No,it is the right thing do.Oh,please. Now,this isn't Shia's fault. But Oliver Stone,what happened to him. He used to be brilliant. This movie is not even a good depiction of the economic crisis the world is in right now,so it is not even enlightening.Incredible waste of time and celluloid.
