Boiler Room

* *

Ben Younger writes and directs. Giovani Ribisi stars as a college dropout who takes a job as an agressive stockbroker in a "boiler room", only to discover his employer is a crook. Ben Affleck, Vin Diesel, Jamie Kennedy, Scott Caan, Ron Rifkin, Bill Sage, Tom Everett Scott and Nia Long also star.

Capsule Review: Though the setting is interesting, the characters here just simply aren't. Ribisi gives a good try, but never connects with the audience as the lead. His scenes with his father (Ron Rifkin) play as if they belong in a different movie altogether. Don't bother spending time with this con job.

[R - strong language and some drug content] (New Line)
