Superficial and simplistic take on the book by John Helyar and Bryan Burrough concerning the RJR Nabisco buyout by KKR in '88. The film can't seem to decide if it's a satire and mostly falls as flat as its mostly unenthused cast. Pedestrian at best.
How to ruin a great book? Turn it into a shitty movie with nobody actors and no atmosphere or nothing
