Jonah Hill does an excellent job making you like a character that you really have no reason at all to like. I mean, I was watching him do horrible things and still wishing he was my friend. So yes, the acting in this movie is outstanding. It may not be as comedic as some are expecting, but there are still several moments of comedic value in the film. The point isn’t to be funny though, it’s to educate the audience on a serious flaw in the American contracting system. At least, that was the take away I took.
I would rate this film as a must see. It’s a great drama, educational, and above all, highly entertaining.
