Might be fun, but trailers are deceptive.

But I doubt it comes out the way we might hope.

I don't need to see it.

A lot of people made stupid investments, paid for it, and are blaming others for their decisions. Some people made good investments, were rewarded for it, and were blamed.

I sat by the side. I knew what was going to happen. After the dust had settled, I was about where I had expected to be. It was a big non event.

The only way I will go the the movie is if my wife allows me to buy fries and a malt.

The Fed was keeping interest rates low to encourage business to expand and employ more people - supply side economics. Most business owners are encouraged to expand and employ more people by increased demand - demand side economics. The fed is talking about removing the punch bowl slowly. Very Slowly. The Fed lost control of the punch bowl long ago. The oil industry had drunk all the punch they wanted a long time ago. Which is why oil production increased, oil prices are falling, and there are bankruptcies in the industry. Looks like the housing bubble again. A lot of people made stupid investments, and are paying for it. Some people made good investments, and were rewarded for it. I sat on the side.

Maybe source material for a sequel movie.
