Movie Info

A pair of mismatched, down-and-out L.A. misfits find that their luck is about to change -- thanks to a charismatic, oblivious young buck from the Lone Star state -- in this psychological drama. Robert Forster plays Jack Waters, a con man whose best days are behind him when Henry (Kip Pardue) steps off a bus and stumbles into his life. Young, naïve, and attractive, Henry's everything Jack once was, and the old man plans to be a defacto agent of sorts, farming Henry out to appear on game shows and whatever else Tinseltown has to offer. But when Jack's unstable, erstwhile stripper girlfriend, Moira (Rose McGowan), sets her sights on Henry, she's determined to get a piece of the action -- both literally and figuratively. Meanwhile, Henry's career takes off, and the two hangers-on struggle desperately to take control of their "sure thing."

Audience Reviews for Roads to Riches

Haha, this was so bad but Mateo and I saw it since Rose McGowan was in it. The dialogue was just tacky and the plot went nowhere, or as they say in the movie, "never going forward, just sideways". It was funny to watch though, so I give it two stars.

I watched the last half of this movie while watching dinner one night. It did not look interesting enough to go back and see the first half.

this is one of those movies that left me with a strange feeling. it was almost like someone that had the money, threw this film together to see what kind of reaction we'd have. the rat in the can productions reference at the end of the credits really justified my review. can't wait to see if anyone else felt the same way i did.
