Storyline

The Baxters are a typical happy American family trying to live on too little money. Mrs. Polly Baxter acquires two mysterious trees that got into a nursery shipment by mistake. Guess what: they turn out to be money trees! After initial problems, Polly decides to spend the money. But there's one logical consequence of money grown on trees that no one's considered.

I remember this movie!
8 November 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies I saw YEARS and YEARS ago...and have been trying to find it ever since. It was really cute - a great little family piece. I would love to be able to show it to my kids...who seem to think that money DOES grow on trees! (Boy, wouldn't it BE great if it did!)
