EppsNet at the Movies: Dumb Money

 

I laughed non-stop through Dumb Money, except during the parts that weren’t intended to be funny.

I had to take off a star because (minor spoiler alert, since the movie’s based on a true story that everyone knows) it’s a David vs. Goliath movie, and the Goliaths get their comeuppance, but that’s conveyed principally through explanatory text on the screen after the movie is essentially over.

The comeuppance should be on-screen! Show, don’t tell!

Rating: 4 stars
