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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
