Paul Newman's charismatic performance elevates this hodgepodge of a picture, but it is not enough.

Decent movie that pushes the PG-13 envelope.

The money of the film's title should refer to Paul Newman, because the actor's presence elevates this routine caper into a pleasantly bankable diversion.

Newman and Fiorentino steal cash -- and scenes -- in amiable heist comedy.

A sly, smooth, extremely enjoyable caper... full of scenes you want to get lost in.

For all the film's jauntiness (actually, because of it), it merely depresses.

For its first half this plays like a character-driven, antiestablishment caper of the 1960s and '70s. As the story progresses, the characters turn rotten. When the establishment is more appealing than the maverick heroes, something has gone wrong.

USA Films and director Marek Kanievska should be congratulated. They've done what thirty-odd years and countless films couldn't: make Paul Newman uninteresting.

The film misfires because of its weak script, lack of punch to its comedy, and the plot was too incredible to believe or become absorbed in.

Plodding, dull and endless at a short 89 minutes.

Sadly, the subtext and context of Money is that everyone's better days are a distant memory.

Where the Money Is has a preposterous plot, but it's not about a plot, it's about acting.

You wanna know Where the Money Is? Not in the script, unfortunately.

Age has pared Paul Newman's fine features to a sketch; it's also honed his huge movie appeal to such basics that he can pretty much maintain our attention while in a coma.

The script lets us down by conveniently skipping a few steps.

Where The Money Is is quick and entertaining, with plenty of breezy dialogue and performances that really up the ante.

Feels like one of those mediocre and ultimately forgettable flicks from yesteryear.

Money is short, sweet and to-the-point.
