Money Monster movie quotes follows the story of a stock advice television set that's taken over by an armed man who lost his life savings by listening to the show's advice. The thriller was written by Jamie Linden, Alan Di Fiore and Jim Kouf using a story Alan Di Fiore and Jim Kouf created. Jodie Foster directed Money Monster, which opened in theaters on May 13, 2016.

In Money Monster, Lee Gates (George Clooney) is a host of the Wall Street stock advice television show Money Monster. He and producer Patty Fenn (Julia Roberts) are preparing for another episode of the show, as they normally do, thinking nothing is far from typical. But during the show's taping, a man with a gun, Kyle Budwell (Jack O'Connell), crashes the set and takes the crew hostage.

Kyle forces Lee to put on a vest with a bomb attached and demands answers as to why the advice Lee gave on his show caused Kyle to lose all his family's money. While Lee doesn't immediately have this information, he eventually agrees to help Kyle figure it out. But those who have the answers (including Dominic West and Caitriona Balfe) might not want that truth exposed to the public.

Money Monster brought some thrills to theaters already showing other films such as Captain America: Civil War, A Bigger Splash, Ratchet & Clank and Mother's Day.

Kyle Budwell: I might be the one with the gun here but I'm not the real criminal. It's people like these guys. I'm telling you, it's rigged, the whole damn thing. They're stealing everything from us and they're getting away with it too. They literally own the airwaves. They literally control the information, but not today.

In speaking to those watching the attack happen, Kyle explains that while he's the one causing terror right now, it's the corporate heads that are really the criminals here. Kyle feels that those in charge of the media airwaves have been conspiring against the average person and wants vengeance for that.
