Great Fun
8 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

They sure don't make TV movies like this anymore. You don't know how funny and talented Tim Curry is until you see this movie. There's action, comedy, great music, and one hell of a funny cast. BLUE MONEY was fantastic. Tim Curry as the charming & funny Larry and Debby Bishop as the sweet and lovable girlfriend, Pam. Tim Curry does everything from singing to doing impressions. I loved this movie, and luckily was able to find a copy on Amazon. I recently dug it out and enjoyed it again. It is a shame they don't make great movies like this for TV anymore. If you haven't seen this movie, check it out. You won't regret it. It's a Tim Curry fan must-see. It gets funnier every time I see it.
