Kudos to Canada
1 August 2020 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

I wonder if the problem of crushing student loan debt is prevalent in Canada as it is here. In any event kudos to the Canadians for Bankstas, a comic film about the efforts of a pair of Canadian students to stop a Gordon Gekko like character from taking the debt over and profiting from foreclosure.

Michael Seater and Joe Dinicol are the students like Charlie Sheen going to work for their own Gekko type, Alan Thicke. Thicke will wreck lives like Gekko wrecked companies because he can. He and his entitled son Brandon Firla play it broadly for comic effect.

Romantic interests for the boys are Laura Vandervoort and Grace Lynn Kung who really stands out. Her scenes trying to seduce Firla as a ruse to get him out of the way are hilarious. Firla himself as one of the entited is the last word in sexual harassment.

Student loan forgiveness as an issue that brought Bernie Sanders considerable support in the last presidential campaign. Bankstas is a moderately funny film about a most relavent topic.
