The purpose of this disclosure is to explain how we make money without charging you for our content.
Our mission is to help people at any stage of life make smart financial decisions through research, reporting, reviews, recommendations, and tools.
Earning your trust is essential to our success, and we believe transparency is critical to creating that trust. To that end, you should know that many or all of the companies featured here are partners who advertise with us.
Our content is free because our partners pay us a referral fee if you click on links or call any of the phone numbers on our site. If you choose to interact with the content on our site, we will likely receive compensation. If you don't, we will not be compensated. Ultimately the choice is yours.
Opinions are our own and our editors and staff writers are instructed to maintain editorial integrity, but compensation along with in-depth research will determine where, how, and in what order they appear on the page.

When we came up with our Best Money Movie nominees, we searched strictly on films that either featured a finance industry worker as a central character or money as a core part of the plot. Also, in order to be on the short list of Best Money Movies, a film had to simply be a good movie—smart, entertaining, provocative, and so on. (So movies like The Bonfire of the Vanities, which may have been a great book about Wall Street’s “Masters of the Universe” but a total stinker of a film, were immediately out of the running.)
Now it’s time for you to have your say. Vote below for what you consider the Best Money Movie of all time. Yes, you can tell us where we got it wrong, too, and make your case for an overlooked gem in the comments below, on Facebook, or Twitter using #BestMoneyMovies. Sometime this summer, we’ll crown a winner.
