Winfree and Radulich review a movie that doesn't feature comic book characters kicking the crap out of each other.  TriStar snuck this one in the Summer Blockbuster Season and we'll tell you what we thought of it.

Lee Gates is a Wall Street guru who picks hot stocks as host of the television show "Money Monster." Suddenly, during a live broadcast, disgruntled investor Kyle Budwell storms onto the set and takes Gates hostage. He tells Lee that he lost everything on one of his tips. As Gates tries to plead with Kyle, he's also using an earpiece to communicate with his longtime producer in the control room. Together, they must figure out a way to defuse the situation and disarm the angry young man.
