Had the mis-fortune of seeing this horrible excuse of a film over the week-end. It starts out slow and the only speed it picks up is the car crash! Other than that, it moves at a snails pace, very choppy and while the acting is marginal to OK, there are no great or dramatic scenes. Watching the grass grow is one of the only things that move slower than this flick. Should be out on cable and DVD/Blue-ray in the next 5-6 weeks.

Overrated and underdone. Title does not refer to any part of the movie. or "Dirty Stuff".Lead character is a real dunderhead. Movie is in 2 parts. First part is an accident coverup and second part relates slightly to a bad trade that results in the usual losses completely unrelated to arbitrage.Acting is okay but nothing unusual. Sex scenes are standard. A better tile for the movie might be " Unhappy Margin" or "Dirty Stuff." Either one tells part of the story better than the original title.

ARBITRAGE - A GREAT MOVIE especially for grown-ups !!!!!!!!!!!

"Arbitrage" - A great movie for grown-ups. The old Gerbil-meister gives a wonderful performance as a bad bad man - harkening back to his performance in "An Officer and a Gentleman." And the conclusion of the film is all too real. Susan Sarandon, Tim Roth, and the supporting cast are all great and the soundtrack is gorgeous. This film will be nominated for Academy Awards.

What a horribly disappointing ending to a otherwise brilliant, exciting and well acted film. This movie is still worth seeing even though it leaves the audience in disbelief!

Makes you wonder where all of the bodies are buried in real life. Great cast. Best role Richard Gere has done in a long while. Wouldn't hold breath for Oscar noms, but entertaining and worth the few hours.
