Goofs

The three BMW 6-Series arriving in the warehouse from the shipping container are US version with side running lamps, bigger bumpers, and CHMSL brake lamp. That would not be possible with the grey market cars since the manufacturers or official distributors would not sell those parts to the third party importers or converters. Usually, the grey market cars have aftermarket side running lamps attached to the fenders and the bumpers moving outward as to give the appearance of beefier American 5-mph bumpers.

CHMSL brake lamps weren't mandated in the United States until 1986 model year. All of three BMW cars in the film have them.

The white 6-Series is a 1987 as denoted by redesigned bumpers and long thin side running lamps inserted in the black stripe. See more »

Quotes

Ron Levin: I had been working at Rothschild for a year. When suddenly I found myself thrown in front of a discipline committee and was forced to defend myself. And... I had nothing. 21 stories and none of them good. So I came clean.
Joe Hunt: They take your license?
Ron Levin: No, I mean they could have, they should have, but no. Because what I was doing wasn't illegal... yet. I was ahead of the law. I mean, it was unethical and corrupt. Immoral if you believe in that sort of thing. But it wasn't illegal, so they had nothing....

Shameful remake
10 August 2018 | by formationlcSee all my reviews

Here is another take on the story of Joe Hunt (Joseph Gamsky) by Hollywood screenwriter airheads who think they can do whatever they fancy about a story and turn it into something completely different with no regards to the truth. I even wonder if the writers took time to read Sue Horton's book (The Billionaire Boys Club) and who worked for years to get all the right details to render the story as close to reality as it was possible.. Did they even see the first version of the movie made in 1987 which is based faithfully on that book? (The movie starred Judd Nelson who played Joe Hunt in a most magnificient way ) (Strange thing actually that Mr. Nelson accepted a part in this parody of the story).This movie shows Joe Hunt as an unsure young man, one who does not have a strong personality and therefore who can barely influence anyone, much less in investing huge sums of money. The movie shows Joe Gamsky as a victim and Dean Karny being "the brain" behind everything when actually it was the other way around.

I agree that all the facts (or just about) are in the movie but everything is so twisted around that I had the feeling I was watching an entirely different story. Bottom line is the movie is a huge deception which is too bad because the young actors in it are talented .

But if you want to be entertained or at least have an idea of how things went down, I strongly suggest that you watch the 1987 version (longer, better and so much more accurate!)
