a minor masterpiece commenting on the sleaze and glory of capitalism
30 December 2002 | by Sleepy-17See all my reviews

Sixt-four years later we're still living it, the speculators' dream and the gamblers' paradise. This lively farce (grade-C only in credits and the dollars it worships) features hot-shot dialogue and a clear-cut version of shyster stock-wielding that is still so important today. If the Common Man plays close attention, all of the lessons of modern economics are laid out, one after another. A career high for the prolific director McGann, and the screen writer Jacobs bears a great responsibility for this fun little gem also. Don't miss it!
