Bio-comedy drama directed by Craig Gillespie. Based on the true story of everyday people who flipped the script on Wall Street and got rich by turning GameStop into the world’s hottest company. Dumb Money (2023) follows regular guy Keith Gill (Paul Dano), who starts it all by sinking his life savings into the stock and posting about it. When his social posts start blowing up, so does his life and the lives of everyone following him. As a stock tip becomes a movement, everyone gets rich, until the billionaires fight back, and both sides find their worlds turned upside down.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.

Keith Gill: Holy f***ing s**t.
Caroline Gill: Everything okay?
Kevin Gill: Eleven f***ing million dollars? What are you going to do? Get a Ferrari? What the f***?
Keith Gill: Oh, language. The baby is here.

YouTube Viewer: I love this guy.
Keith Gill: Yeah, I think everyone else is crazy, and I think I’m right.

Gabe Plotkin: [referring to Keith] Who is this schmuck?
Steve Cohen: Dumb money, man.
Gabe Plotkin: Happy to take it.
Gabe Plotkin: I’m here testifying today far removed from my background. I grew up in a middle class family in Portland, Maine. My dad was a grocery store executive.
Gabe’s Lawyer: Maybe leave that part out.
Gabe Plotkin: Part about my dad?
Gabe’s Lawyer: The executive part.
Gabe Plotkin: I went to a public high school. I studied hard and got into Northwestern.

Keith Gill: Wall Street must be seeing this, right?
