Highly enjoyable
6 December 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

$40,000 is the main topic of this movie. It moves around quite a bit, and even spends some time in a large sausage. I assume the $40,000 is in $5,000 notes, as it is a very small bundle for such a large amount.

The vocal styles and interesting manner (including the rather strange dance-like movements in some scenes) of almost every actor is fun to watch. Plenty of action as well as the comic elements.

Beware; many of the characters are masters at soft knock-out blows. A light tap, and the person is rendered unconscious for some time. Haha.

There are the "clacky" fist-fights (you know, the odd, light clacking sound of someone getting punched in these old movies as opposed to the explosive deep bass sound of a punch in some modern movies), a very well-done comic piano and vocal performance by the deli bloke (far more entertaining than the one on the David Letterman show for sure), and even chimney-climbing! It's also a lot of fun seeing (and trying to identify) all these old cars from the 1930s.

I consider the writing above average for a movie of this kind and of this era. Certainly worth the hour of enjoyment it brings.

There are other comic/crime dramas from this era. This is certainly one of the more amusing and entertaining ones.
