Not remotely in the same league with Newman's last caper film, The Sting. But then, it doesn't need to be.

Paul Newman idles gracefully through Where the Money Is, a caper film hardly worthy of his presence.

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

Overall, the story is more old hat than 'cool hand' for Newman. But it has its pleasures.

Paul Newman's co-star never really interacts with him -- and their marriage is seriously underwritten, a fatal weakness toward the end.

A forced, implausible flick that loses its energy as it tries to gain momentum.

The rhythmic cha-cha of conflict - resolution - conflict - resolution gives Where the Money Is the feel of something written with Newman's Own Script-writing software.

The movie utterly lacks the spark that makes caper movies fun.

Age has pared Paul Newman's fine features to a sketch; it's also honed his huge movie appeal to such basics that he can pretty much maintain our attention while in a coma.

Sadly, the subtext and context of Money is that everyone's better days are a distant memory.

An overacted, underwritten con comedy that relies on Newman's cantankerous charm to get over. This asks too much even of Newman.

If only Fiorentino had a chance to bring more of that lethal quality she brought so memorably to The Last Seduction's villainess, Where the Money Is might have been a different story and a much more enjoyable film.

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.

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.

There's real pleasure in discovering Where the Money Is, thanks to a silver fox named Paul Newman.
