The life of a young man about town suddenly reaches a turning point. Before this he led a life of debauchery.

Easy Money
20 July 1999 | by (Marietta, OH) – See all my reviews

Dangerfield is in top form in his first starring vehicle as a slob who tries to mend his ways in order to inherit his mother-in-law's estate. Memorable one liners and classic gags that show off the comedien's immense talents. Title song by Billy Joel.
