Critics Consensus: Money Monster's strong cast and solidly written story ride a timely wave of socioeconomic anger that's powerful enough to overcome an occasionally muddled approach to its worthy themes.

Money Monster works better as comedy than thriller - but that's not all it wants to be.

The frenzied drama has no clear point of view besides its air of celebrity condescension.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Money Monster is a hostage story crossed with a "media circus" story. It has some violent scenes: There are guns and shooting, characters are wounded and killed, and blood is seen. There are other brief violent images, too, plus the threat of explosives. Language is strong but not constant, with uses of "f--k," "s--t," "c--k," "bitch," and more. A secondary character tries out an "erection cream" and has sex with a woman backstage; they're covered by clothes, but the scene is still pretty graphic. Minor characters snort cocaine and smoke pot briefly. Though it's not a movie that's likely to stick with you, it does showcase bravery, empathy, and honesty.
