Critic Reviews for Run for the Money

All Critics (5)

A moral fable in which the deepest analysis comes from the politics surrounding the film rather than the lifeless garbage found within the movie.

When the opening scene makes you feel as though you've already missed about an hour of the plot you know you're in trouble.

Full Review… | July 3, 2003

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and for former box office kings Christian Slater and Val Kilmer, the bottom of the scrap heap is "Hard Cash", a mostly mediocre action number that hardly showcases their talent

It beats sitcom reruns.

Audience Reviews for Run for the Money

I can just see the brainstorming session for this film: "Hmmmmm.... what's the dumbest plot of a Baywatch episode?" "Oh yeah- that one where Mitch defuses a bomb, performs open-heart-surgery with popsicle sticks, and rescues Hobie from Guatemalan-Terrorists!" "Now how can we make it worse?" That is Hard Cash in a short summary. You would THINK this was meant to be a cheesy movie along the lines of the Toxic Avenger, or some other movie where the audience knows the filmmakers aren't taking themselves seriously, but no....they actually ARE taking themselves seriously! And it's goddamn pathetic.

I picked this up thinking it was something else (bought it in Japan, and the title wasn't clear, as is normal when translating Western titles to Japanese). I can't believe I watched all of it. I have nothing really constructive to say about it, except that it seemed like they got a ton of actors all on the downsides of their careers and put them together with a cookie-cutter plot. It's nothing anyone hasn't seen before, and there are far better movies to waste your time on.

A surprisingly enjoyable film, one that you can just sit back at let it unravel. A good little scheme, predictable, but enjoyable.
