REVIEW: Dumb Money (2023) - Starring Paul Dano and Seth Rogen

"Dumb Money" is a 2023 American biographical comedy-drama film that dives into the extraordinary events of the GameStop short squeeze of January 2021, based on Ben Mezrich's book, "The Antisocial Network." The film has its moments of glory and delivers a brisk, biting comic tone with a touch of anger against Wall Street. The ultimate David vs. Goliath tale is portrayed with a smart and entertaining style, making it a finance-world docudrama worth watching.

"Dumb Money is based on the insane true story of everyday people who flipped the script on Wall Street and got rich by turning GameStop (yes, the videogame store) into the world's hottest company. In the middle of everything is regular guy Keith Gill (Paul Dano), who starts it all by sinking his life savings into the stock and posting about it. When his social posts start blowing up, so does his life and the lives of everyone following him. As a stock tip becomes a movement, everyone gets rich – until the billionaires fight back, and both sides find their worlds turned upside down."
