We're all revolted by now by globalist hypocrite Clooney and Julia Roberts' hugely wide, now somewhat droopy, mouth, but forget all that. Both have a great script to work and work it they do. Both in fine form. A credible enough plot if not conclusion based on the vagaries of high-speed stock trading that makes us all wonder why this doesn't happen more often. Security, no doubt. Jodie Foster directed. One of few child actors who still does occasionally good work while staying out of the news. A relief to see a female protagonist of heroic proportion.

The plot doesn't take overly long to reach implausibility, and none of the characters manage to engage the viewer's interest. Indeed, the actors don't seem very interested in the film themselves (though Caitriona Balfe, who plays a PR maven, is admittedly nice to look at). Jodie Foster is an intelligent actress; what was she thinking of when she directed this waste of time?

It was better than I expected, quite entertaining, and distinct from other thrillers. Kudos to director Jodie Foster for putting this star vehicle together. Worth watching.

Real unsolved mystery is: Why did George Clooney and Julia Roberts ever decide to take on these wasted roles? How on earth Jodie Foster got into this movie as a producer? This movie is trash.

Even though I said it is for 14+, there are a lot of swearing.

5 out of 5. Very exciting, some humor and twists. One thing i noticed that the director did really great is that even after a tragic thing happens, most people would go back to doing their own things which was demonstrated in the movie.

When I saw that part, I felt guilty because I am one of those people when I hear tragic news, I have never done anything to help and just continue doing my own things.

George Clooney & Julia Roberts how could I go wrong? I thought this was a stupid movie and these two stars are so much better than the material in this movie. Not worth watching!

I thought this was an every man movie. You could relate to most of the main characters. Some of the performances and dialogue was over the top but so is the topic. Entertaining.

I'm surprised to see so many negative reviews of this movie. Given the plot, it's not one I expect I will rewatch many times in the future, but I would definitely watch it again at some point. I actually thought it was one of the better 2016 movies I've seen. The story was unique, the movie was well constructed and not overly long, and the performances were good. Maybe others approached it with higher expectations than I had. Money Monster is rated R for language throughout, some sexuality and brief violence.

Intro on money:
You don't have a *clue* where your money is. See, once upon a time, you could walk into your bank, and they'd open a vault and point to a gold brick. Not anymore. Your money - that thing that you bust your ass for - it's nothing more than a few photons of energy traveling through a massive network of fiber optic cables. Why'd we do it? We did it to make it go faster. Because your money better be fast - faster than the other guy's. But if you want faster markets with faster trades, faster profits, faster everything, sometimes you're gonna blow a tire.

You tried to convince us it's all too complicated for us to understand. But it's not that complicated at all, is it? It's actually the oldest story in the book. Fraud.

-You broke the law.
You've already decided it's gonna be me. What law? Name one law you can prove I broke. No, don't look at him. He can't prove it, either. This is just business. And this is how business is done.
-That doesn't make it right.
Oh, please. Tell that to the Chinese. Tell that to the Russians. 'Cause if it's not us, it's gonna be them. Hell, it already is. You see, that's the irony about all this. You only came after me 'cause I lost you money. Nobody was asking questions when everybody was makin' a profit. You just gobbled up every dollar of stock you could afford. As long as we kept paying you 18% ROI every year, then you could keep bragging to your friends about what a genius you are. But, hey, you're not a genius, you're a stockholder.

They're only calling it a glitch because nobody understands how the algo works. And if nobody can understand the math, then nobody has to explain the money.

Ending rap lyrics part 1 of 4:
I'm hip, blue chip makes glasses connect
Filled with champagne,
toast to the bread we get
The bigger the building,
the bigger the foundation
Peep how Wall Street is pimping our nation
I feel bossy, watch my dough rise
Kick folks in the street,
glad I ain't those guys
The bigger the building,
the bigger the foundation
Peep how Wall Street is pimping our nation
When one wins, someone loses,
that's the chances
It's competition, relieve finances
So far but we reached our consensus
If not, we'll meddle with consequences
Traffic and bills, freeway of exchange
One-way ticket, y'all lose, we gain

Ending rap lyrics part 2 of 4:
USA, wave the flag like gang colors
Bang on, but you'll be glad I came, brother
My money ain't funny and it keep coming
I welcome the money and the cash
My money ain't funny and it keep coming
I welcome the money and the cash
At the welcome mat swollen fat
In stupid stacks, the cash
My money ain't funny and it keep coming
I welcome the money and the cash
Wall Street is rigged like a 14-wheeler
No one gets the plot, and we're not revealing
We got to live like emperors,
we ain't going down
We stay in the 1%, you under it
It's like they sent the hellhounds
On an ice cream cone
how the global meltdown
Financially, they ain't catching me
They can't capture a phantom
they haven't seen
Fuss with your folks all day for crumbs
You work, we play, hooray for us

Ending rap lyrics: part 3 of 4:
We're the master puppeteers
with the leverage
Sneak up behind and get a wedgie in
With technology people are obsolete
Fossil fuels is all you are to me
Hugs go out to the world, I love you, fam
Backslide your cash,
I call that sleight of hand
My money ain't funny and it keep coming
I welcome the money and the cash
My money ain't funny and it keep coming
I welcome the money and the cash
At the welcome mat swollen fat
In stupid stacks, the cash
My money ain't funny and it keep coming
I welcome the money and the cash
Call us super rich, we're hero to y'all
We hedge bets, scalp
You give your half off
Trust us, of course we'll give y'all a job
One day you too can live high on the hog
Wrong, you get
left in the hole starving

Ending rap lyrics part 4 of 4:
Hit the margin, so what?
That's your problem
Hoard that bread just like the nasty hooker
Heels crack the concrete,
she walkin' crooked
Lookit, all the assholes you see as stars
All gonna be broke, yep, the world is ours
Put a twist on it too, like a Hefty bag
In the end, it's fittin', what's left is trash
Whistleblowers hiss like cobras
If we sense resistance, it's over
Bull market, bear market
Wild kingdom, yes, you the target
My money ain't funny and it keep coming
I welcome the money and the cash
My money ain't funny and it keep coming
I welcome the money and the cash
At the welcome mat, swollen fat
In stupid stacks, the cash
My money ain't funny and it keep coming
I welcome the money and the cash
