It's sometimes a little too on the nose that it comes off as more uncomfortably honest than funny, but "The Big Short" is an effective, cynical, and fully aware satire of a devastating economic crisis that ruined some, but profited others.

It's not flawless, but The Big Short does an excellent job of explaining the worst economic meltdown of our time in a way the average person could understand. And yes, fourth-wall breaking turns from the likes of Selena Gomez, Margot Robbie and Anthony Bourdain actually help. The characters are excellent and the film balances humor with depressing reality. I think they tried to fit too much in - but, for the most part, a wonderful look at how corporate greed and corruption totally screw the average American.

It's too bad the character development felt rushed and the direction was all over the place. So many spectacular moments and yet the pacing wasntoo errati. Why not remove the sensationalized ciseo editing and focus on the story. The story and real people involved were interesting already in the beginning. Felt this could have been executed better but the overall plot, acting and music was untarnished.

Entertaining and creatively put together, but I think I knew a bit too much about the housing crisis to fully appreciate it.
