Movie Info

Avarice is the motivation behind the zany deeds in this comedy. It all begins when a dying prisoner whispers the location of his loot to the facility's psychiatrist who heads to Cherry Hill, New Jersey to find it. Unbeknownst to him, he is followed by two fugitive convicts who overheard the confession. More trouble erupts when the shrink accidently goes to the wrong house to dig up the treasure.

Audience Reviews for There Goes the Neighborhood (Paydirt)


This movie, albeit cheesy, shouldn't be relegated to the depths of trash-dom. Poignant one liners, exploitative stereotypes, and a cohesive story line (points in the beginning have relevance in the end) make it worth viewing when the cheesy slapstick mood strikes.
