Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is a average drama movie about money and family and parents you need to know that Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps has some strong language used and a lot of drinking and cigar smoking this movie does have a positive message it's not about the money that makes you temporarily happy it's about family that comes first and the role models are one Gordon Gekko seems like a reformed man who can predict the economic crisis but isn't powerful enough to do anything about it and Jake is quite loyal to his mentor and idealistic about the green company he champions throughout the film.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
Great messages
Great role models
