Film Review - Billionaire Boys Club


While controversial and on the quickie side, 1987’s “Billionaire Boys Club” (which aired on NBC) managed to catch the ambiance of the 1980s by sheer proximity to the true crime details of a 1983 murder that inspired the production. 2018’s “Billionaire Boys Club” looks like a collection of baby-faced actors playing dress-up, straining to sell the wonders of the decade with a well-worn story of drugs, lies, and greed.
