Welcome to the new American Dream. Seth Davis (Emmy Award-winner Giovanni Ribisi TV's "My Name is Earl," "Saving Private Ryan") is eager to show his aloof father that he can succeed in life, an ambitious, intelligent college dropout takes a job at a small stock brokerage firm, where he meets with great success. But when he learns that the company is selling worthless securities to gullible buyers, he realizes the cost of his ambitions--and how deeply embroiled he has become in the scam. Also starring Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Ben Affleck ("Good Will Hunting," "Pearl Harbor").

Critics Consensus: Its ending is disappointingly tidy, but Boiler Room boasts just enough sharp writing and brisk pacing to make getting there worthwhile.
Good but mature movie. Not for kids.
