Great cast, but unfortunately the story just didn't hold my interest.

Adam McKay all grown up. A highly enjoyable and well acted true to life story.

A fictionalized documentary that does the best it can with character development given its narrative limitation. McKay crafted an entertaining and educational film.
An absolute essential, along with "Inside Job" (2010). The documentary is probably more important, but I didn't think "The Big Short" sacrificed much in fictionalizing the story, and I actually thought the moments where the narration identified where dramatic license was taken in the moment, and where it wasn't, were surprisingly effective filmmaking.
Absolutely LOVE this movie.
