for tube addicts who wish sitcoms were really, really long so they could be crammed with even more bedroom jokes, bathroom humor and 'nudge, nudge' line readings.

Audience Reviews for For Richer or Poorer

TV actors Tim Allen and Kirstie Allie star in a romantic comedy, and it's actually really funny. Of course it isn't the best comedy of the year, but surprisingly good, and enjoyable to watch.

Aj V

Super Reviewer

Good hilarious comedy of a wacky businessman and his spoiled wife (Tim Allen and Kirstie Alley) go on the lam after a ballistic IRS agent decides to take them down. Things pick up when the couple hides out in an Amish colony - a part like Witness.
