Normalizing Boomer greed
Without going into specific details, there are quite a few disturbing pieces of rationale flung around in this movie.

There is a religious belief that childhood illnesses can be attributed to the sins of the parents. That belief is core to this movie. This movie claims you can cure a sick child by simply not being a scumbag for about 10 seconds. Not only that, your entire life will be redeemed, and yet essentially unchanged.

There are other disturbing claims. Like if you hire an aging Boomer your business will grow exponentially. Also, that being a scumbag from a mansion does not count as official scumbaggery. Even drunken whore-mongering can be redeemed, and yet continue unabated.

Apparently this is the new American Dream - a feel good movie for the unrepentant.
