From Wikipedia:
Quote
In the film, Gekko (Douglas) has served his prison sentence and is warning everyone about the fall of Wall Street. No one listens to him so he devotes himself to mending his relationship with his estranged daughter. LaBeouf plays an ambitious, young Wall Street trader who is engaged to Gekko's daughter. When LaBeouf's mentor unexpectedly kills himself, he suspects that a hedge fund manager (Bardem) is responsible. LaBeouf seeks revenge on Bardem's character and asks Gekko for help. Gekko agrees in return for help reconciling with his daughter." The film spans from June 2008 to the federal bail out.

Gordon Gekko is advising people? He's trying to reconcile with his daughter? (Didn't he have a son?)

What the hell is this???

Wow, Stone's taking regression to new heights, er, lows. I thought his freefall would have leveled/bottomed out by now.

Looks like Charlie Sheen is smart enough to stay away from this. Two and a Half Men just can't be pushed aside.

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oV5hEBqYfTE

1) Watching the trailer it looks like a heavy parody. (Among other things, note the The Blues Brothers spoof.)

2) 8.3 on IMDb, 6 months prior to the release. Cheesy


You know what guys, this may be worth our time and money, after all.

I didn't...

The trailer was kinda fun but the movie is over two hours long. They'd better have something more in their pocket than just two jokes.

The scene in the beginning when Jake goes to get his stuff before leaving the jail. Classic.

I was being sarcastic. Sorry.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

Something not worth your time.

I ain't gonna go pay in a theater to see it, that's for sure, but since the release date is this summer there's a high probability some summer festivals and such events will be showing it (for little or no money), and that is a the best way to see this. Or try to see it, if you want.

As I've said elsewhere: there's a difference between a mediocre movie and a laughable bad movie (especially from a well known director). You can watch the latter as a parody, whether it's parodying itself, its genre, its screenwriter, its director, or whatever, intentionally or unintentionally. From the trailer this looks like that kind of movie.

Given Stone's track record in recent years, I think avoiding it would be a smart idea.

What's the last good movie he made? Must have been JFK...

I'm a big fan of Nixon, myself. His output this decade has been dire.
