Trivia

The last names of the "Capuletti" family characters, headed by "Monty Capuletti" aka "Montgomery Capuletti" (Rodney Dangerfield), and the Monahan family, headed by Mrs. Monahan (Geraldine Fitzgerald), were a spoof and a reference to the names of the two feuding families in William Shakespeare's play "Romeo and Juliet", the Montagues and the Capulets. Easy Money (1983)'s story-line features familial conflict between Monty and his mother-in-law. See more »

Goofs

When Julio attempts to make love with Alison on his wedding night, she goes from wearing a thin robe when coming out of the bathroom and holding hands with Julio to bare shoulders (robe disappears!) as Julio pushes closer for a kiss - all in one cut (good for Julio, bad for Continuity)! See more »

Classic 80's Comedy
28 August 1999 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

If you are a big fan of Rodney's this is the movie to see! A lot of funny one liners. His comic timing is perfect.

A perfect guide to how men should behave! Also watch "Back to School"
