Billionaire Boys Club
Young. Handsome. And Cunning.
Colour us sceptical.
A remake of the 1987 film about Joe Hunt, who recruited wealthy young men with the promise of making millions. One complicated scheme led to another as the losses piled up, until some of the group decide to take direct action before things spiral completely out of control. This version had a disastrous first day in the US, making only $126 from a handful of cinemas, with the poor figures blamed on Spacey’s presence.

|Comments||The biographical drama thriller Billionaire Boys Club explores themes of betrayal, lies, deceit, fraud, self-interest and -preservation at all costs, lifestyles of rich kids, con artists, murder, pretence, trying to fit in, friendship, risky investments, corruption and spending money you don't really possess. Themes, and the narrative about the BBC's complex business model, are complex and mature and likely to be confusing for cognitively immature viewers, and quite difficult to grasp. Themes dealing with pretence, shady investment deals, lying, betrayal, deception and selfishness may also be morally misleading to viewers under the age of 16 years who are still developing an independent moral system and values, as they may walk away with the message that wealth and success can only be achieved through deception, corruption and dishonesty. Younger teenagers are particularly at risk for being influenced by morally misleading messages, as they are highly susceptible to media influences. This risk is intensified as the young protagonists are portrayed as attractive and (at least initially successful) anti-heroes. There is a sense of threat and menace as contained in the murders and concealment of the bodies, based on true events, which may be upsetting and disturbing to viewers under 16 years.|
