Audience Reviews for Double Dynamite (It's Only Money)
A hilarious movie with great actors. I wish Groucho had done more movies like this one. Anyway, check it out, it's a good movie.
Lame comedy made when Sinatra was at a low point. Jane, saddled with an unattractive hairdo and apparently directed to act like a fool and speak in a voice a few octaves higher then her own was just starting out and hadn't blossomed into the great broad she became a few years down the road.
As for as old movies go, this one is just okay. Groucho is funny as always and the unusual pairing with Sinatra works fairly well for the most part. I didn't like Russell very much though. She just seemed very slow most of the time. I don't know if that's her character or how she acted in everything, but I just didn't like her.
And the main title has nothing to do with the movie (just some of Russell's own "assets"), so they should have stuck with the secondary title. There are a few chuckles in the movie though and most of them come from Groucho as always, with the best joke pointed at Sinatra.
If they cut out everything, but the scenes with Groucho, then you'd have a short movie worth watching worth at least a couple laughs.
"Well, I like THIS!"
"You do? Well, join me!"
