...And proves our point perfectly: Hollywood almost never casts women as professionals in Wall Street movies.

- Patrick Bateman
... Bateman summed up what women's presence means in Hollywood's Wall Street movies. They are there to look pretty, and say little.
Maybe it's because the women on Wall Street are told to act like this >>>>
