"Wall Street" not enough to dampen that cash spirit? Try "Money Never Sleeps" instead.

"The Social Network" (2010)

As if you had enough of Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci. De Niro and Pesci portray hip-to-hip gangsters with one wired to murder and the other wired to predict winning numbers in a world of casinos. De Niro's character, Sam Rothstein, is more rational with business. Pesci gives ruthless a new meaning. The jewels, the money the thugs exist in this flick. But that's not the shocker. The scenes where money is passed like candy in stacks of hundreds can make you lose faith in the world of gambling payouts.

This independent heist committed by a young man named Frank Abagnale, Jr., potrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio, offers a most fortunate option. By the time Frank reached 19-years-old he made millions. Finally caught, after long cat and mouse scenes, the government gives him a job. A job. All due to the kid's skills of ripping off an airline, and everyone else, with his swift criminal mind. And the help of logos on toy planes. If you want to lose faith in the system when it comes to criminal punishment watch this film.

"Now You See Me" (2013)
