    An outrageous story of greed, lust and vanity in America
    Certificate: 15
    Running Time: 120 mins
    Retail Price: £15.99
    Release Date:

    Sherman McCoy was Wall Street`s Master of the Universe - and everything in his life was right. Then one night he took a wrong turn at the wrong place with the wrong woman. And nothing has gone right since.

    Tom Hanks as McCoy, Bruce Willis as a jaded journalist, Melanie Griffith as McCoy`s self-centered mistress and Morgan Freeman as an outspoken judge ignite `The Bonfire Of The Vanities`, the quintessential story of the go-for-it `80s.

    Based on Tom Wolfe`s best seller and directed by Brian DePalma (`Mission: Impossible`), this freewheeling film pokes hilarious fun at the glitzy Greed Decade. It`s a comic circus so outrageous a single spark could start a bonfire!

    De Palma`s worst effort, it`s actually not that bad, there are some wonderful moments in it, like the opening 13 minutes, ehich is great cinema. some of it is actually funny, although it ultimately fails as social satire, and fails quite miserably aswell.
