Walter Fielding and Anna Crowley have to start looking for a new house- but there's not much they can afford! This soon changes when they meet a lonely old con artist who sells them a beautiful mansion at a ridiculously low price. Only there's a catch. The second they move into the house it falls apart, starting with the stairway collapsing to the bathtub falling through the floor to eventually the chimney falling into the house! Finally, they have to renovate the house before the frame collapses but the renovations also prove to be a disaster. Written by

For the scene with the bathtub falling two floors down after being filled with water, Tom Hanks does a obnoxious laugh. This clip of him laughing is commonly used for the Universal back-lot tour when the tour guides joke with the visitors. See more »

One of my first movies i ever watched, and still a classic
Growing up, i was always fond of movies. I remember the first time i ever saw a movie, i feel in love with them. The first movie i ever saw, was ghostbusters, and i was hooked. the 2th movie, was the money pit, because it was recorded on the same VHS tape as ghostbusters was, and it to was just as funny.
I remember watching this film over and over again as a very young child, (2-5 years old) and cracking up every time even though i didn't get most of the jokes (what 4 year old knows about the trouble of home repair?) anyhow, after catching a late night viewing of the film (and only the end part of it) i can say from what i viewed, i was laughing my ass off, almost waking up my sleeping parents and brother. Very funny film, and definitely worth checking out and buying on DVD (granted you can find it)
