| Surprisingly entertaining
Boiler Room showcases Giovanni Ribisi's best performance so far; he's shaping up to be a pretty big star. His performance and others keep this movie entertaining, and it stays entertaining throughout, despite a plot that derails near the end. Since the movie is about stockbrokers, it gets pretty technical and wordy, but it's not necessary to understand it all; just go along for the ride and Boiler Room is effective and enjoyable.

Trivia

On Wall Street broker trainees actually make $300 a week, but in the film Ben says they make $150 a week, during his speech. These are called cold callers.


Quotes

Greg Weinstein: Now there's two rules you have to remember as a trainee, number one, we don't pitch the bitch here.
Seth Davis: What?
Greg Weinstein: We don't sell stock to women. I don't care who it is, we don't do it. Nancy Sinatra calls, you tell her you're sorry. They're a constant pain in ...


Goofs

Having known the FBI are going to raid the office why would Seth go to Chris to ask him to sign a sell ticket so Harry Reynard could "dump" his shares on the open market and make his money back. Seth confirms this goof by saying "what's the difference?" The FBI would cancel all transactions made long before the raid, the same goof occurs when Seth asks Michael if they can give Harry Med Patent IPO, also before the raid knowing ahead of time the FBI was going to raid the offices.


Crazy Credits

At the start of the film, the New Line Cinema studio logo features the faces from various U.S. Dollar bills, and the studio fanfare music uses a hip-hop "scratch" sound effect.


Alternate Versions

DVD features deleted scenes not included in original theatrical version:

  • After the toast at the hotel, you see the guys in the hotel room with the prostitutes and guys outside the room cheering and hollering.
  • When Seth, Chris, and the guys go out to celebrate Seth passing the series 7, there is several minutes worth of footage of the guys just driving around and then going into the restaurant where Richie offends the Hostess .
  • A scene with some of Seth's customers talking in school.
  • An alternate ending showing Seth leaving the building and passing Harry who is carrying a gun on his way into the office.
