I think that it is interesting that both Wall Street and Boiler Room are so similar. The main characters in both films are practically identical. They are both under senior brokers, who create their wealth through illegal activities. Both Fox and Davis are under these brokers and are forced to do the "dirty" work for them. Isn't it ironic that Fox and Davis are the ones caught? They also cooperate with the authorities to help incarcerate their bosses. Their fathers are also involved with their business. I just thought that it was interesting that these two Hollywood films chose to portray Wall Street in the same manner. Perhaps it simply makes good entertainment.
