About the Movie
When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything. Based on the true story and best-selling book by Michael Lewis (The Blind Side, Moneyball), and directed by Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) The Big Short stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: McKay cowrote The Big Short's screenplay with Charles Randolph, and they know how to keep an audience engaged, broadcasting this knowledge often, as both parody and indictment.
Fresh: It's a fine feat of screenwriting, particularly given its 'heroes' are bankers about to get rich on public misery. ... This is one Hollywood film that doesn't come up short.
Fresh: At the end of the film, I was hardly any the wiser as to the reasons eight million jobs and six million homes were lost in the US, even though the skill of the actors and the film's ambition remain impressive.
Fresh: In this abstract world, the cast's strong performances provide vital slivers of humanity.
Accidentally picked this movie in theaters and is was good. Best performance hands down goes to Steve Carell. Not sure how true it is but it definitely entertaining.
Four try hards who love themselves but can't act. Try harder next time. Next! ryan gosling loves himself silly, Brad Pitt can't act to save himself but at least isn't up himself like the others.
