Money is short, sweet and to-the-point.
January 1, 2000

Many actors retain their talents into their 70s and beyond, but not too many could convince us that, at that age, they could rob a town blind -- and swipe the leading lady to boot.
January 1, 2000
Even Newman can't completely salvage this misfire, which lacks the laughs and thrills necessary for such a risky movie hybrid.
January 1, 2000
Not remotely in the same league with Newman's last caper film, The Sting. But then, it doesn't need to be.

January 1, 2000
A forced, implausible flick that loses its energy as it tries to gain momentum.

January 1, 2000
Even with a great cast and a great story idea, the movie fails to build even a hint of suspense.
January 1, 2000
It's charismatic, sharp and lively.

January 1, 2000
With its plodding blend of heist humor and geriatric guffaws, this insipid crime caper wastes the talents of screen legend Paul Newman and one-time up-and-comer Linda Fiorentino.

January 1, 2000
The movie as a whole is wonderfully laid-back and pleasant to be around.
January 1, 2000
The film solidifies Linda Fiorentino's worth as a leading lady, hopefully rescuing her from the B-movie fare that litters her resume.
January 1, 2000
There's real pleasure in discovering Where the Money Is, thanks to a silver fox named Paul Newman.
January 1, 2000
Few actors project intelligence and resolve like Newman, and he makes the seemingly impossible aspects of his character feel not just probable but easily within his reach.

January 1, 2000
It's hard to know whether to blame the movie's failings on Kanievska or on the screenwriters.
January 1, 2000
The film feels much more like a made-for-TV movie than a vehicle for one of Hollywood's formerly bankable stars.
January 1, 2000
Kanievska paces this 90-minute escapist entertainment as lazily as a three-hour epic.
January 1, 2000
There's a caper and there are some laughs, but this isn't a larky caper flick.

January 1, 2000
Paul Newman idles gracefully through Where the Money Is, a caper film hardly worthy of his presence.
January 1, 2000
You've seen it all before, but even in repose, lion in winter Newman is an engaging entity.
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.
