The movie is at its best when it's an exploration of greed and consumerism. I'm simultaneously in awe and annoyed by the over-the-top acting of Christian Bale. The ambiguous ending also had me mixed. I think there's a good movie in here somewhere.
"Does Jeff know?" is a perfect line.

I'm late to the party. I cried big fat tears. Gavin O'Connor knows how to make a sports movie.
This makes Rocky look like an elementary school skirmish during recess.

It's more neo-noir than I remember. Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman are perfectly cast here. It's ugly, twisted, and quite entertaining. One of my favorite Fincher features.
