Easy Money(1983)

Rodney Dangerfield hit his stride with Caddyshack and cruised into this movie about a slovenly, drunken gambler of a baby photographer that married the heiress of a $10 million fortune, the only provision being that Rodney has to clean up his act in one year. Hilarity ensues.

Watching this film after all these years I've realized that it isn't the greatest, kind of like D.C. Cab and a few others I could mention. The whole joke gets so worn out by the last half hour you're actually excited when he gets shot in the ass. It's still an ok piece of nostalgia, but it doesn't hold up to Caddyshack or Back to School. It's one of those blah movies that you re-visit once a decade and leave it lingering in the back of your mind until the next time you stumble upon it. See you in the 2020's.
