So forgettable
Verified purchase
It was so forgettable I had forgotten I'd watched it until I started watching again. And even though it isn't the worst ever, I can't remember everything that happened but I still have/had no interest watching it over.

Better for a slow movie day where you just want to pass the time, not think too much, etc.

Not the greatest cast, no chemistry. It is "okay" in movie terms, 2.5 stars.

Like the babboons in Australia
Verified purchase
Armand Assante, a policeman, goes into your refrigerator and eats whatever he wants, while the the door is open. He spits out what he does not like back into the Tupperware container. The movie is mildly funny. You will be entertained. The cab driver is a stand up comedian.

Not Chevy Chase's best role, but amusing and worth the watch
Verified purchase
Not Chevy Chase's best role, but amusing and worth the watch. I cringed more than laughed at the variety of errors that kept this movie going - but that is not a bad thing, just a diferent style of comedy. As an amazon prime member, it was well worth the price of admission.

"Unfunny Poor", rather than "Funny Money"!
Verified purchase
Chevy Chase has gotten really OLD and stupid, as evidenced by this dunce of a film!

* Not only have two briefcases been switched, but there's a THIRD briefcase in the mix that looks exactly like the other two!
* The cab driver who drives them to the airport cracks jokes in a contrived manner at an inopportune time - because he's a comedian!
* The lady of the house discovers the money, but doesn't want it, so gets drunk and acts dumb!

This movie lacks any semblance of what made Chevy Chase a great star, who has become old and senile. The unfortunate result is this %$&# film!

Clever, Crafty and Funny
Verified purchase
Only Chevy Chase could get away with this superb comedy. He is perfectly cast in this clever, witty and crafty masterpiece that went from the stage to the screen. For that matter, the entire cast is excellent including Penelope Ann Miller, Joanne Rubino, Rebecca Wisocky, Armand Assante, Robert Loggia, Christopher McDonald, Alex Meneses, Kevin Sussman and Guy Torry. What would you do with $5 million in dirty money? Find out what Chevy does with it. Great comedy...a must for Chevy fans.

This is what we all wish for

This isn't one of Chevy Chase's best movies but it is still funny. It is worth watching when you are looking for a funny feel good movie.

Funny Money is too funny for words...
Verified purchase
This Chevy Chase movie had me laughing from the start to the finish. I'm such a fan of his... This one is truly what the title says, "Funny Money", based on a play and taking the cake for one of the best I've seen in ages...

Gotta purchase this one, if you'd not seen it, well, rent it, and then if you are like me, you'd wish to own it and watch anytime...
