Boiler Room

Genre: Mystery and Thriller, Drama; Starring: Nicky Katt, Giovanni Ribisi, Ben Affleck, Vin Diesel, Nia Long, Ron Rifkin; Director: Ben Younger; Author: Ben Younger; Runtime (in minutes): 120; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: New Line

In Boiler Room – the cinematic equivalent of the Beastie Boys, complete with ”bomb the bass” soundtrack and freewheeling use of the word ”nigga” – Ribisi plays an ex-college boy who trades heavily on his mad stock skillz for a shady Long Island brokerage. What starts out as a fascinating peek into a white-boy ghetto dream of fast money is frustratingly sold short by a boring ”narking for the Feds” finale that’s right out of ”21 Jump Street.”
