Low risk, low return: 'Wall Street' sequel

There are 3 comments on the CNN story from Sep 23, 2010, titled Low risk, low return: 'Wall Street' sequel. In it, CNN reports that:

"Everybody needs money -- that's why they call it money!" That's a line from David Mamet's film "Heist" spoken by actor Danny DeVito as Mickey Bergman and not dialogue from Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko in "Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps." But what a partnership those two characters would have made! Everybody needs money, and more of it.

WOW, Right on Time for the Elections. Bash Wall Street as a creator of American angst, with the meltdown and all.

The problem is that the meltdown was caused by the collapse of Fanny and Freddie who became a FINANCIAL ENTITY thru a vote in Congress. That's right, the meltdown was that of Failed GOVERNMENT
ENTITIES, not Wall Street.

The movie was rather disappointing. Shia LeBeouf seems to get a perverse kick out of watching geriatric has-beens ruin their legacies, huh? First Harrison Ford, now Mike Douglas. The 80s were a wonderful decade. However, the past few years has seen a disturbing trend of over-the-hill yet ludicrously wealthy actor-cum-producer wash-ups trying to resuscitate the decayed corpse of their glory years to no avail. Much like Stallone should have left Rocky and Rambo alone, Bruce Willis should have left John McClain alone, Harrison Ford should have left Indiana Jones alone, and Arnold should have left the Terminator alone...Mike Douglas should have left Gordon Gekko alone. In 1987, he was epic if not iconic. In 2010, the whole thing was self-parodic and pitiful. While the first one was Oscar-worthy, this one had all the hallmarks and trappings of a poorly executed made-for-TV movie. The acting was flat, the pacing was off, and the ending was curt and insulting to one's intelligence. Mike should focus on rehabbing his kid, spending as much time as he can with Kirk, fighting cancer, raising the little ones, and fucking the hell out of Cathy while he can still get it up! He doesn't need this anymore. Sometimes, it takes more courage to walk away than to jump into the fire. How cliche and trite of me to say, but none more so than Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps.
