There really aren’t any “popular” films that provide what I would call real-life insight into investing. However, there is one business news show that I believe offers the average investor good information in a reasonably interesting format. “Nightly Business Report” is on for a quick 30 minutes and recaps the stock-market performance, along with important topical interviews.
I favor the educational segments on planning topics: tax, financial, estate, insurance and college planning. I also don’t notice a huge political bias one way or the other, which is always refreshing.
