For Business Movie Junkies
You may need to watch "Boiler Room" twice to fully get every detail of the storyline. If you don't have a solid understanding of business terms such as IPOs, stock splits, etc this movie may not be for you. However, if you're a business junkie like I am, it's well worth the two hours. Casting was good but could have been better. I would have liked for Ben Affleck's character to play a larger role. He played the character of the recruiter for the stock brokerage firm. The lines he used in his "Act as if..." rant were classic. Giovanni Ribisi played the lead character well. He's put on the fast track to make big money but soon figures out that something with J.T. Marlin's (ironic name for the firm) business model seems sketchy.

Several references to other classic business movies such as "Wall Street" and "Glengarry Glen Ross" were made in the movie. One scene even has the stockbrokers all repeating lines word for word from the "Wall Street" movie.
