If you believe greedy corporations caused Americaâ€™s economic crisis and it has nothing to do with greedy voters electing crooked politicians to provide them with money and free benefits at the expense of future generations, then you will like this movie. If you believe the corruption surrounding Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Chris Dodd, and Barney Franks had nothing to do with our economic crisis, you will like this movie.

Politically correct to the point of being a parody/comedy. Liberal\'s point of view of corporate America. What\'s wrong with working hard, building something from nothing, risking your livelihood and reputation, then wanting to own a nice things and live comfortably? NOTHING! Few people take huge risks in life and few of those actual succeed. Along the way they provided an obvious much need service and provided 1000s of job to boot. What\'s evil about that? And surprise, Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones and Kevin Costner in this? What stretch (tongue meet cheek)! Hey, I\'ve been there like these characters and it really sucks. I don\'t blame the corporation. I don\'t blame capitalism. I don\'t blame the free market. When have these no good actors been in the real world. What a joke. Shoulda\' given it one star now that I think about it.
An great movie. It hits alll the nails on their heads regarding the horrific economic and human toll exacted on the lives of so many people by the financial/economic crisis. Told very powerfully and movingly. Great story. Great script. Great acting by an all-star cast. Great direction. See it yourself and tell everyone you know to see it.
