Great Movie Posted by: from: on This movie is outstanding. Mixed with a good soundtrack this movie is fast paced, funny, and tragic all at the same time. Does a good job of showing the point of view of all parties in volved in the suburban America's "Crack Rock" the stock market. Giovoni Ribsi does an excellent job in the lead role dealing with the emotional conflict of wanting to succeed while realizing that what he is doing might not be as innocent as it seems. The one downside is that the DVD extras are a bit on the weak side. The deleted scenes, commentary etc. just really don't add much to the movie.

This movie is genius! Posted by: from: Richmond, KY on This movie is amazing and will resonate well with the right individual. Looking to get into a similar business and having gone through some of the interview processes, this movie is dead-on. Not so much with the vulgarity, but the group vs. individual interviews, no money now but millions later spiel, et cetera, are all a part of what goes on today. I'd recommend this movie to anyone who has experience in the business world, aspires to get into business (particularly financial services), and has a thick skin for vulgarity (lot of F Bombs). Enjoy!

very real Posted by: from: on as someone who has worked in tele-sales, this movie is RIGHT on target. if you watch how things are "on the floor", that's what most tele-sales people go through. ribsi's performance was very good but i think he always looks nervous.

Financial Heat Posted by: from: Hyattsville Maryland on The Boiler Room dvd has photo images of Vin Diesel, Giovanni Ribisi, and Nia Long on the front of the dvd cover. With Nicky Katt also listed to be in the movie. I admit that Boiler Room is another film that I heard about via an e-mail connected to the office of Jordan Belfort. Due to obvious and understandable legal reasons, it is mentioned during the play of the dvd that Boiler Room is fiction. This is because one can easily see the obvious parallels between Wolf of Wall Street and Boiler Room The character of Seth Davis (Ribisi) just wants to make his father proud when it comes to eking out a living for himself. Davis sees opportunity when he gets hired at a stock brokerage firm, part of the appeal being is that he is a newcomer to working in the field. Seth Davis thrives in his job and even falls in love with a fellow coworker named Abbia (Nia Long). There are obvious references to the Glengarry Ross movie in Boiler room with referencing both the movie and the Always Be Closing phrase. There is even a cultural nod to the Wall Street movie (the character of Seth Davis is seen watching the Wall Street movie with his coworkers). I just seen his name on the back of the dvd cover, yet I admit that I did not know that Ben Affleck was in the Boiler Room film until I saw him in scenes involved with doing the hiring at the stock brokerage firm. Anyhow, things seem to be going along well for Davis until he convinces a purchasing manager at a Gourmet Foods Company to be a client. To exacerbate the situation, the gourmet foods purchasing manager is not just responsible for himself, but he is shown to be both a father and husband who is trying to place a large down payment on a home with his wife (therefore the stakes are even higher than if it was just him and his wife). The following are some of the features attributed to the Boiler Room dvd-the chance to play the movie with filmmaker commentary, isolated score with composer commentary by The Angel, deleted scenes/alternate ending, theatrical trailer, cast and crew filmographies. There are also dvd rom features of a script to screen that allows a read of the screenplay and original theatrical web site on the dvd and listed to be more.
