Mo' Money (1992)
Small-time crook Johnny Stewart (Damon Wayans) decides to go straight to win a beautiful girl (Stacey Dash), and to prove it, he joins the mailroom of the credit-card firm for which she works. Needing money to impress her, Johnny steals a credit card, goes on a shopping spree and wins the girl. The story isn't over though, because a security guard who caught his theft on videotape is blackmailing Stewart to join his own credit-card ring. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Mo' Money
Damon Wayans and his younger brother Marlon make a terrific comedy team in Mo' Money.
Damon and Marlon are at their best in the opening comic sequences, which allow their chemistry to operate, but their pacing is disrupted by the ensuing formulaic thrills.
Some of the humor in Mo' Money has a mean-spirited edge. And only in isolated moments is it as funny as its own title.
The movie is described as an "action-comedy-romance," but it fails to work as any of the three.
It's a shame. A low down dirty shame. Or maybe I'm thinking of another Wayans family member.
Entertaining enough and funny enough, and cannily includes all the elements that entice popularity. But, perhaps after reaping the rewards for this film, Wayans will put his obvious talents toward a project that isn't about making more money.
Only managing to come up with routine action, director Macdonald delivers few thrills, and the comedy doesn't last far beyond the first reel.
One or two laughs, but hardly worth a rental.
One of Damon Wayan's better offerings. An entertaining combination of action and laughs.
'Mo laughs would have been sufficient.
Damon Wayans wrote Mo' Money as a star vehicle for himself and is credited as an executive producer. So, so it's safe to say he deserves the blame.
Audience Reviews for Mo' Money
This came out at the time In Living Color was very popular and this movie employs some of the same slapstick type of comedy. Marlon and Damon are funny as brothers/scam artists. A young Stacy Dash looks absolutely fantastic.
This is one of the first and possibly the best of all the Wayans movies.
