Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch Money Monster is a financial TV show and, just as the presenter is getting into his stride, a disgruntled investor with pistol and explosive vest invades the studio and demands to know why he has lost his savings. What follows is a tense stand off as the production team gradually unearth the truth about the investment and broadcast it, but the police are closing in with sniper rifles, and its not certain who is going to get shot.
Content Lots of tension in the interior of a TV studio, with handguns and some shooting and some smart dialogue. A brief sexual encounter as a producer tests a new erection enhancement cream.
A View In my new role as a movie critic I have already watched over 200 films, and this one hit a few spots, although many critics, and some public did not think much of it. What does it take $200 million maybe? This was low budget and successful because of it. It was not exactly original, almost mirroring the plot of “Cadillac Man”, but who cares it was great fun.
