Brad Sexton (Tim Allen) and his wife, Caroline (Kirstie Alley), are wealthy New Yorkers with both marital and financial problems. The latter issue becomes a pressing matter when they discover that their accountant has embezzled millions and pinned the blame on them.

As the two adapt to the simple Amish lifestyle, they begin to reconnect.

Audience Reviews for For Richer or Poorer

  • Sep 06, 2010
    TV actors Tim Allen and Kirstie Allie star in a romantic comedy, and it's actually really funny. Of course it isn't the best comedy of the year, but surprisingly good, and enjoyable to watch.

    Plagued by debts, New Yorkers Brad (Tim Allen) and Caroline (Kirstie Alley) Sexton continue to live the high life while maintaining the deception of wealth. But then real estate developer Brad learns his accountant has balanced the books in his own favor, appropriated $5 million, and flown to South America -- after first devising a set-up in which only Brad and Caroline would be blamed by the IRS. With IRS agent Derek Lester (Larry Miller) on their tail, the Sextons escape from New York. They arrive at the Amish community of Intercourse, Pennsylvania, where they pose as the Missouri relatives of farmer Samuel Yoder (Jay O. Sanders). It's the perfect hiding place, but it requires Brad and Caroline to suppress their previous sophisticated lifestyle, as they attempt to adopt Amish attitudes and customs.

    Tim Allen and Kristie Alley, a married couple, on the verge of Divorce run from the IRS and end up living with the Amish while in hiding, pretending too be suspected family-visitors. The story was great, the acting was great, and it was funny as hell. Caught some Critism because of how it imaged the amish, but, I think it helped the view on them more then took away from it. I love this film and everyone should check it out. Doesnt get much funnier..
