YMMV / Boiler Room

  • Acceptable Targets: Seth is shown selling stock to an arrogant doctor and a slightly greedy would-be investor. The real targets of such scams are usually the elderly (who end up losing everything they own), but Writer/Director Ben Younger believed that conning senior citizens would be a Moral Event Horizon for Seth.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Scott Caan is in this movie with Ben Affleck; Caan's best known movie roles would eventually be opposite Ben's younger brother Casey Affleck as his brother in the Ocean's Eleven trilogy.
