Just curious, but didn't Gekko have a son in WALL STREET? Is there any reference to him or the Sean Young character?

Yes to both. They don't specifically say it but Carey Mulligan's character was apparently born shortly after the first movie.

Oh good. As long as they didn't retcon the little nose-picker out of existence, although with no credits for son and wife Gekko in WS2 I don't suspect happy endings for either of them.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps was a decent movie but the characters seemed disconnected. I'm a big fan of Shia LaBeouf, Josh Brolin and Michael Douglas and really had high hopes when I found out it was directed by Oliver Stone, however the movie just didn't hit home. It seemed conflicted - sometimes it's best to let the story do the storytelling. I thought Project Northwest by C. B. Carter delved deeper into what was happening behind the scenes than this movie.
