Where the Money Is (2000)

The acting in Where the Money Is is excellent. However, the movie feels like a made-for-TV movie that's plain and forgettable.

Movie Info

An ailing criminal and his excitement-starved nurse decide to knock over a bank for fun and profit in this comic suspense story. Legendary bank robber Henry Manning (Paul Newman) pushes his luck too far and ends up in prison, where he suffers a massive stroke. He is transferred to a nursing home, in the care of Carol Ann McKay (Linda Fiorentino), a high school prom queen who married her boyfriend Wayne (Dermot Mulroney), the star of her school's football team, and whose glamour days are well

The movie as a whole is wonderfully laid-back and pleasant to be around.

Where the Money Is has a preposterous plot, but it's not about a plot, it's about acting.

The test of any caper movie is whether you like the crooks enough to root for them. This one aces the test effortlessly as Newman and Fiorentino project more than enough charm to melt any mere armored car.

Many actors retain their talents into their 70s and beyond, but not too many could convince us that, at that age, they could rob a town blind -- and swipe the leading lady to boot.

Paul Newman's charismatic performance elevates this hodgepodge of a picture, but it is not enough.

June 19, 2011 Full Review Source: EmanuelLevy.Com

Decent movie that pushes the PG-13 envelope.

The money of the film's title should refer to Paul Newman, because the actor's presence elevates this routine caper into a pleasantly bankable diversion.

Newman and Fiorentino steal cash -- and scenes -- in amiable heist comedy.

November 7, 2002 Full Review Source: Netflix

A sly, smooth, extremely enjoyable caper... full of scenes you want to get lost in.

For all the film's jauntiness (actually, because of it), it merely depresses.

For its first half this plays like a character-driven, antiestablishment caper of the 1960s and '70s. As the story progresses, the characters turn rotten. When the establishment is more appealing than the maverick heroes, something has gone wrong.

USA Films and director Marek Kanievska should be congratulated. They've done what thirty-odd years and countless films couldn't: make Paul Newman uninteresting.

The film misfires because of its weak script, lack of punch to its comedy, and the plot was too incredible to believe or become absorbed in.

Plodding, dull and endless at a short 89 minutes.

There's a caper and there are some laughs, but this isn't a larky caper flick.

Kanievska paces this 90-minute escapist entertainment as lazily as a three-hour epic.

The film feels much more like a made-for-TV movie than a vehicle for one of Hollywood's formerly bankable stars.

It's hard to know whether to blame the movie's failings on Kanievska or on the screenwriters.

January 1, 2000
New Times

With its plodding blend of heist humor and geriatric guffaws, this insipid crime caper wastes the talents of screen legend Paul Newman and one-time up-and-comer Linda Fiorentino.

January 1, 2000

Even with a great cast and a great story idea, the movie fails to build even a hint of suspense.

Maybe Newman's relaxation in front of the camera was just so infectious that everyone behind the camera felt the urge to work in a lower gear.
