Synopsis: An ambitious young stock broker, Bud Fox, turns to a successful, yet corrupt, wall street speculator, Gordon Gekko, for a fast rise to the top. Money, women and success come at a price and Bud will have to choose between what's right and his bank account.
Fact: Wall Street is the only film to have a Razzie and Academy Award for acting. Michael Douglas won the Oscar for best actor while Daryl Hannah won the Razzie for worst actress.
Trivia: When Bud enters Gordon's office for the first time you can hear a wolf howl as the doors close.
Movie Mistake: Sir Larry Wildman is seen typing on a computer, when we see the monitor the screen is blank.
My Take: I did this in honor of one of my most anticipated sequels in a very long time. I loved Wall Street and when I was working, as a kid, at the movie theater, I would sneak in and catch as much of this film as I could get away with. This is Stone's, Douglas's and Sheen's best film by far. Here's also wishing the Douglas's the best in Michael's battle against cancer.
