YMMV / Other People's Money

  • Strawman Has a Point A big part of the point of the movie. The film pits a ruthless corporate raider (played by Danny Devito) against noble, idealistic businessman (played by Gregory Peck) who just wants to keep his business open. In the end, we have to face the fact that the corporate raider may be right. Also an example of Know When to Fold 'Em.
    Larry: Why're you so hard on me?
    Kate: You're not nice.
    Larry: Since when do you gotta be nice to be right?
    • The argument here is whether Garfield is a Strawman at all as both sides of the argument are balanced fairly well and no one is really portrayed as corrupt or immoral.
