With it being the holidays and knowing that a few Bankers here love this scene I felt this was appropriate.

How many of you here are cringing at the fact that you might be working Christmas Eve?

Got to love work/life balance.

Happy Holidays WSO.

    One of my favorite Nicholas Cage movies. First thing I'm doing when I move to NYC is singing Rigoletto while in boxers overlooking the skyline.

    I'm talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing.

    Not working tomorrow...but only because the building is closed, and he doesn't want to have to request any overtime A/C.

    If I were single, would be not be a big deal either way, but now I have a bf I want to visit.

    Sitting on a deal for almost a year, plan my short vacation around when my boss is going to be out of the office... he then decides not to go and try and get the deal done by year end, so I am working my whole vacation... FML.

    Pretty sure this was filmed in Toronto. In fact, I work right next to that black building.

    I would watch this movie if it didn't have Nicholas Cage in it.

    Will have to enjoy it before i join them!

    Do what you want not what you can!

    Movie should have ended right there!

    On-call, aka working. It's all good.

    A completely underrated movie. This should be part of the 25 days of Christmas.

    NO MONTY IT IS THE SAME GIRL! She plays a dual part of the sl*tty neighbor in the alternate reality and the escourt in the actual reality.

    Yeah, the office building is 375 Park Ave. Wells Fargo Securities is based there now, I've been there a few times.

    Nope, not the same girl.

    Haha what were all those movies? I don't think I've seen more than four or five of those.

    Dude, Nicolas Cage is a ridiculous actor. Love or hate his movies, the guy can act, although I hear he's a terrible money manager.

  • bulge4lyf's picture

    Don't know why people hate on Cage. He's a great actor. And this is a great movie, so reflective of Wall Streeters, the way the he looked at his alternative wardrobe had me cracking up.

  • Virginia Tech 4ever's picture

    Yeah, some of his movies have been weak, but I've really liked (off the top of my head):

    1. Gone in 60 Seconds
    2. Snake Eyes
    3. National Treasure 1 and 2
    4. Lord of War
    5. Family Man

    Frankly, I can't think of a Cage movie that I've personally seen (and I'm no movie buff so I've seen about 10 of his movies) that I haven't liked.
