| A sale is always made...
I remember when i had a short stint working for this telemarketing company, my boss used to always say "A sale is made on every call. Either you sell them what you are selling or they sell you an excuse." This is the message that this film hammers through: the lure of fast money and the power of persuation; you can destroy someone's life with one phonecall. Now unlike the characters in Boiler Room, im not trying to scam you out of your life savings- so stop reading these reviews and see the movie. You won't regret it. 8/10

Did You Know?


Despite a significant amount of hip hop songs in the movie, there is no official soundtrack containing any of the songs - most likely to avoid payments for the licensing. Hence, fans of the movie have created unofficial versions of the soundtrack with the songs.


Greg Weinstein: As you all know there's going to be a lot of heat coming down from what Farrowtech did yesterday so be smart on the phone, calm people down, the stock's dropped eighty six percent from yesterday's close. I don't want people dumping their shares


Jim begins the orientation interview with the new recruits by telling them we expect our coworkers to treat each other with a certain level of respect, yet throughout the film we see and hear the brokers constantly berating and belittling each other with profanity and other remarks and gestures.

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.
