We watched the original Wall Street this week in preparation for going to see the sequel. And it's a good idea to do so if you don't remember most of the old movie.
The casting was good, the premise was good, and IMHO Michael Douglas redeemed himself for the last dud of a movie he was in.
I had not remembered seeing Carey Mulligan before, although she did play one of Keira Knightley's sisters in a version of Pride & Prejudice. She is absolutely adorable, and I loved her in Wall Street.
We also saw the previews for the new Denzel Washington movie, Unstoppable. Looks like a nail-biter!
