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

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.

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.

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.

Sadly, the subtext and context of Money is that everyone's better days are a distant memory.
| Original Score: 3/5

An overacted, underwritten con comedy that relies on Newman's cantankerous charm to get over. This asks too much even of Newman.

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.

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

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

A collage of a film which has been written by a committee but without its star would barely have made the late late show on TV.

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

Catch it on cable sometime, and enjoy.

Even Newman can't completely salvage this misfire, which lacks the laughs and thrills necessary for such a risky movie hybrid.

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

Even with a great cast and a great story idea, the movie fails to build even a hint of suspense.
