The Big Short is a reality check

5 second plot: In the mid 2000s a couple of smart guys figure out the housing and credit market is going to collapse. This is the true story of the international banking disaster that was right under everyone's nose but no-one saw coming.

5 second review:  The movie starts off funny. We even get Margot Robbie in a bubble bath explaining the basics. And at one point there's a drawing of a testicle on the screen (because we pick up on a random conversation). But after a while the fun's over. The tone of the movie shifts from a funny 'what comes around goes around' story to the sad reality it became for a lot of people.

IMDb score: 8,1/10
