Movie Info

In the 1920s, it is against the law to transport a woman across state lines for "immoral purposes." But Nicky (Warren Beatty) thinks he has a found a way around this by having his friend Oscar (Jack Nicholson) do the transporting for him, allowing him to later reunite with his wife, Freddie (Stockard Channing), in California. There are, however, two big problems -- Oscar falls in love with Freddie, and Freddie becomes convinced they are doing this only to get to her family money.

Audience Reviews for The Fortune

  • Jan 19, 2013
    With two such big name stars I was surprised that I'd never heard of 'The Fortune' before but having seen the finished product it's pretty clear why Hollywood has chosen to disown it. The pairing of Beatty and Nicholson just doesn't work here. The material suggests pure farce and what was needed was a Lemmon and Matthau pairing. Instead Beatty looks uncomfortable and Nicholson looks like he's going to massacre the whole cast at any time, so scary is the glint in his eye! Channing is good as the woman they are desperately trying to fleece and the period detail by Nichol's looks great but I didn't find it very funny and was bored through most of it.

    Nicholson and Beatty form a really funny duo.

    The first hour/2 acts of The Fortune were so slow moving that not even the underrated comic pairing of Jack Nicholson (an absolute nut here) and Warren Beatty (think a dopey Jim Dandy) were able to completely stop the juggernaut of slow dullness. I was wondering why the hell I'd never heard of The Fortune before and I'd gotten my answer. But once that first hour disappeared something clicked with the comic timing and the last 10 minutes of The Fortune were some of the most hilariously tense and nerve-wracking I can remember. Its a quick worthwhile watch if you get the chance.
