  • The Man Is Sticking It to the Man: This is an anti-corporate, anti-capitalist movie produced by a major movie studio using corporate finance with the ultimate aim of making a profit.
    • Actually, Word of God states that the film is actually more of a criticism of the cynical, quick-buck culture of the '80s business world, and is neither pro- nor anti- Wall Street. It was made to paint a picture of that world (the director's father was a stock broker himself), and leave viewers to form their own opinions. Given the many, many different views of the film, he's succeeded. There is probably a very high correlation between one's opinion of the film and one's economic views.

So is it an example or not? If somebody can rewrite this so it's not arguing with itself, it can go back on the list.

About the Names to Run Away from Really Fast example: How is Gekko a name to run away from? To me, it sounds more like a cute and slightly odd critter...
