Critic Reviews for For Richer or Poorer

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (6)

for tube addicts who wish sitcoms were really, really long so they could be crammed with even more bedroom jokes, bathroom humor and 'nudge, nudge' line readings.

I wish Tim Allen would go back to cocaine and stop making movies. In fact, the good of the world demands it.

Not a terrible romantic comedy. The Amish stuff has been done before, there are some moments in here.

No masterpiece, but it does have heart

January 23, 2003
Kalamazoo Gazette

A culture-clash comedy that's less a movie than an overproduced, four-times-too-long sitcom.

Bottom of the barrel comedy tripe.

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.
