Movie Info

Comedian Pierre wrote, produced, directed, and starred in this urban comedy about a man who gets a fortune the easy way, but isn't sure how (or if) he should hold on to it. Dre Mitchell (Pierre) is a regular guy living in South Central Los Angeles; Dre is out of a job, and money has been tight for him recently. After the robbery of an armored car, thieves on the run from the cops stash 25,000 dollars in cash in Dre's backyard, and when Dre finds it, he's not sure if he should run out and spend his new fortune, or turn it in. Meanwhile, word spreads like wildfire through the neighborhood that Dre has come into some big money, and everyone he knows starts hitting him up for a few grand; normally, he isn't that interested in sharing the wealth, but when sultry Tasha (Sacha Kemp) is doing the asking, it's a lot harder to say no. For Da Love of Money marked Pierre's debut as a writer and director; the supporting cast includes Reynaldo Rey, Tanya Boyd, and a cameo from ventriloquist Willie Tyler and his wooden sidekick, Lester.

A mediocre sketch comedy film with amusing moments, but no substance nor purpose.
