A slick crime caper that has the winning team of Gregg Henry and Elizabeth Daily as opportunist credit card thieves
Personally I love the edgy ' Funny Money ' and regard it as a somewhat forgotten 80's gem. In turn violent and amusing, James Kenelm Clarke's ' Funny Money ' is a slick crime caper that has the winning team of Gregg Henry and Elizabeth Daily as opportunist credit card thieves.
Shot in London, England, americans Henry and Daily portray Ben Turtle and Cass, guests at the Londonderry Hotel who together hatch a plan to systematically rip people off, making purchases on their stolen credit cards. Needless to say, things don't exactly run smoothly - and they soon wind up in a whole heap of trouble!
Gregg Henry delivers a terrific performance as tortured soul Ben and Elizabeth Daily as Cass ( who of course would later voice Tommy Pickles in ' Rugrats ' and Buttercup in ' The Powerpuff Girls ' ) makes a wonderfully sassy partner in crime. Fans of the genre will be pleasantly surprised.
