Reviews:
"Making an anarchic, absurdist comedy about 2008's housing market collapse and the global financial crisis that followed is as unlikely as the collapse itself. But that catastrophe happened, and that very funny movie, THE BIG SHORT is here to wonder at and enjoy..." - 12/10/2015 Los Angeles Times


"Though much of the movie is fast and funny, McKay is clearly gunning for a more serious brand of comedy, controlling his usual comic anarchy into mere irreverence." -- Grade: B+ - 12/10/2015 A.V. Club


"[O]ne of the funniest and yet most sobering, not to mention one of the most entertaining movies of 2015." - 12/10/2015 Chicago Sun-Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]his is a movie that uses both cinema art and irrefutable facts to make its case. It’s strong stuff." - 12/10/2015 RogerEbert.com


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "A farce fueled by rage against the machine that relentlessly kills ethics, and a hell of a hilarious time at the movies if you're up for laughs that stick in your throat." - 12/10/2015 Rolling Stone


"A true crime story and a madcap comedy, a heist movie and a scalding polemic, THE BIG SHORT will affirm your deepest cynicism about Wall Street while simultaneously restoring your faith in Hollywood." - 12/10/2015 New York Times


"Michael Lewis’s book could not have fallen into righter hands than the ones responsible for making THE BIG SHORT." - 12/17/2015 Wall Street Journal
