Will Smith, Christian Slater, Jonas Brothers Collaborate in Un-Broke

Will Smith, Rosario, Jonas Bros, Acting Out Money Basics

Some things you need to see to believe, and tonight's one-hour special UN-BROKE: What You Need to Know About Money might just be one of them. ABC has put together a star-studded cast to teach the fundamentals of finance in an unconventional way. The program will be broken into segments featuring Will Smith, Samuel L. Jackson, the Jonas Brothers, Christian Slater, Cedric the Entertainer, Seth Green, Sesame Workshop's Oscar the Grouch, Rosario Dawson and the E*Trade Babies, and more!

I have no idea what to expect (will it be cheesy, or funny and effective?), but I love the fact that ABC is giving this a shot. According to ABC, we can look forward to scenes like Christian Slater and Rosario Dawson visiting "an office workplace to explain the importance of investing in a 401(k) retirement plan," and Will Smith getting "down to basics with a boardroom full of corporate finance executives."

The special airs tonight, May 29, at 9:00 p.m. ET. Will you be setting your DVR to record?

I watched the program and it was very informative. I made my whole family watch it. Great program they need to run it again in schools and do a follow up for a number 2.

I saw it, it was really good and gave the basics that many people wouldn't know otherwise. Loved all the celeb cameos!

Instead of forcing all high school kids to learn a math skill (algebra) most will never use, schools should be teaching the basics of how to survive on their to use a credit card responsibly, to balance a check book, to live on a budget, etc....Skills that will teach them how to live.

Interesting. I'm surprised they got such big names to sign on for a project like this.
