AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: The acting in Where the Money Is is excellent. However, the movie feels like a made-for-TV movie that's plain and forgettable.

Movie Info

An ailing criminal and his excitement-starved nurse decide to knock over a bank for fun and profit in this comic suspense story. Legendary bank robber Henry Manning (Paul Newman) pushes his luck too far and ends up in prison, where he suffers a massive stroke. He is transferred to a nursing home, in the care of Carol Ann McKay (Linda Fiorentino), a high school prom queen who married her boyfriend Wayne (Dermot Mulroney), the star of her school's football team, and whose glamour days are well behind her. After a few of her personal effects mysteriously disappear, Carol Ann starts to suspect that Henry isn't as sick as he seems, and she and Wayne are soon working with Henry to plan his last and greatest score. The title comes from the remark attributed to the outlaw Willie Sutton, who when asked why he robbed banks, replied, "Because that's where the money is."

Critic Reviews for Where the Money Is

All Critics (77) | Top Critics (21)

Paul Newman idles gracefully through Where the Money Is, a caper film hardly worthy of his presence.

January 1, 2000

The rhythmic cha-cha of conflict - resolution - conflict - resolution gives Where the Money Is the feel of something written with Newman's Own Script-writing software.

January 1, 2000

Paul Newman's co-star never really interacts with him -- and their marriage is seriously underwritten, a fatal weakness toward the end.

January 1, 2000

The movie utterly lacks the spark that makes caper movies fun.

January 1, 2000

If only Fiorentino had a chance to bring more of that lethal quality she brought so memorably to The Last Seduction's villainess, Where the Money Is might have been a different story and a much more enjoyable film.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Unrelentingly dull.
