Audience Reviews for Other People's Money

Devito is a brilliant actor and works so well in this.

Barry Lappin

Super Reviewer


a very well-written financial comedy. intelligent plot, multi-dimensional characters, and a bittersweet look at both sides of the corporate universe. great acting performances as well.


DeVito was riding the wave of his post-Taxi successes with this unfunny mess. Short people with attitudes only do so much for you.
