Brad Pitt. Steve Carell. Christian Bale. Ryan Gosling. The Big Short

True story: Guy walks into a strip bar and gets into a conversation with one of the ladies employed there.

"You're not going to be able to refinance," the Wall Street insider, played by Steve Carell, tells her.

"On all of my loans?" she asks.

"What do you mean, 'all your loans'?" Carell's character responds.

"I have 5 houses, and a condo," the stripper informs her client.

Flashback to the 2008 timeframe where the subprime debacle was just taking hold.

Enter into that the cast of characters who bet against the big banks, and potentially, the American economy to get rich while the Empire crumbled.

Add in a couple of Hollywood A-listers and you get The Big Short movie, based on the book by Michael Lewis.
