Comedy about two misfit men who lose a borrowed ten grand from a mob kingpin and must flee from NY to LA, only to there get involved in a caper involving a video of Senators in compromising positions. Given a cool million for the video, they are then pursued for the money, which brings about a surprise ending to the film, as well as to their bungling adventures. Written by

Fran Drescher playing Fran Drescher ................
Fran Drescher is the nagging beautician girlfriend of small time hood, Dennis Farina. After a series of failed get rich quick schemes, including St.Christopher medals with moving lips, Farina and his pal, Leo Rossi, embark on a bigger scam, only to run afoul of New York mobsters. Fleeing to Los Angeles, they stumble upon an incriminating video tape, which leads to extorting a million dollars from some local politicians. The film is extremely uneven. The scenes with Fran Drescher are probably the best part of "We're Talking Serious Money", plus one funny scene in a gay biker bar. All of which, almost makes sitting through this very average comedy tolerable. - MERK
