Audience Reviews for For Richer or Poorer

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.

Good hilarious comedy of a wacky businessman and his spoiled wife (Tim Allen and Kirstie Alley) go on the lam after a ballistic IRS agent decides to take them down. Things pick up when the couple hides out in an Amish colony - a part like Witness.
