Cannes 2016: 'Money Monster' Review

As some may know, many, many moons ago, I worked for George Clooney's production company. And because of that -- and because of how well he treated me (which is never a given when you're talking about a movie star) -- I've always been supportive of the man. This sometimes gets hard when I'm reviewing his films, though, and they turn out like Money Monster, which isn't terrible but feels so, so, so behind the times that it's hard to believe it even exists. Alas, this ripped-from-the-headlines thriller is rather weak, as I explain over in my Screen International review.
