Great comedy, bad drama

Only in hollywood would they make a movie where a guy holding hostage with gun and bomb is a victim. And this guy was clever enough to walk pass security but yet dumb enough to be detected wondering around on air with no clue? And before he put the bomb vest on to Clooney, no one could tackle him? There were like 5 other camera men and Clooney!

The road to hell

After reading a review of this that actually DOES the math involved in this film, I have a terrific headache. Guess the reviewer didn't find "Money Monster" all that correct in terms of the way the stock market works.

Thankfully, I was unaware of that while watching "Money Monster" from 2016, which should have been so much better than it was. Director Jodie Foster did some good things here but ultimately missed the boat.

The story concerns a Jim Kramer-type TV host, Lee Gates (George Clooney) who advises people about stocks on his show. Unfortunately, one of his big recommendations has somehow lost $800 million. A delivery man, Kyle Budwell (Jack O'Connell) a stockholder out $60,000, sneaks onto the set with a bomb jacket, demanding to know where his money went.

Behind the scenes, Gates' director (Julia Roberts) speaks to Gates through his earpiece, encouraging him to stall for time while they try to get answers. The CEO of the company is on a plane somewhere, leaving his PR director (Caitriona Balfe) holding the proverbial bag.

The cast does a terrific job, but this was a tension-filled situation that didn't seem to have a great deal of tension. And as a satire about greed, it's all over the place.

As the rap-performing stock analyst, Clooney is great; but the character disintegrates -- he goes from master showman to feeling sorry for himself as he shares his story with the interloper. Normally I'm no fan of Julia Roberts, but she is wonderful here as a true professional doing her best to defuse the situation, keep Gates calm, and move people to safety.

A stronger point of view would have helped "Money Monster," but in the end, there wasn't much focus.

I trusted you

Lee Gates (George Clooney) runs a Kramer "Mad Money" type of financial show on FNN. IBIS, a huge corporation just dropped $800 million dollars due to an "algorithm glitch." How did this happen? Kyle Budwell (Jack O'Connell) is an inquiring mind that wants to know. Kyle also has a gun and an explosive vest as he forces his way into Lee's show and demands answers. As Lee is taken hostage his program director (Julia Roberts) is attempting to locate people within IBIS to give them real answers.

With this all-star cast, it was hard not to enjoy the film. After watching a glimpse of the previews I thought Clooney would be the bad guy. the stock broker who pumps and dumps stock, who works with corporations to manipulate stocks, by recommendations through kickbacks. Brokers who tell the little guy to buy while telling their heavy investors to sell. Sorry if I digress, but I am still waiting for that film. The relationship that Clooney develops with the shooter was not believable, but it was fun to watch.

Guide: F-word. Sex. No nudity.
