Not The Most Memorable Comedy
27 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a harmless but, unfortunately, mostly humorless comedy about two older guys discovering 3.6 million dollars in drug money and then having it change their lifestyle.

Don Ameche and George C. Scott play the old guys. Along for the ride are Scott's mother, played by Sylvia Sidney....and, oh yes, a teenage girl with purple hair. Sidney plays a crude but-not-as-crude-as-Ruth Gordon-type, while Scott and Ameche are nice guys. Of course, the fact that they stole the money is okay, according to the scriptwriters. Never confuse film scripts with Scripture.

This could have been funny, especially with this cast, but it wasn't. By halfway through, I was wondering whether to just re-wind the tape and bring it back to the video store. I stayed with it, but was not rewarded for doing so.
