Goofs

The scene in the Colosseum, Arron raises an AT4 (rocket launcher) to blow up the control booth, as he raises it, you can see through the tube. Obviously no rocket in the launcher. Also, AT-4s are not re-loadable, the launchers have one shot and then are discarded. See more »

Entertaining but hardly worthwhile
17 February 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

The only thing that can be said for "Money Talks" is that it held my interest. No, it's not a great film, but then again few comedies of this sort are. For what it is, the film entertained me enough to recommend it. Tucker and Sheen have rather good chemistry together, albeit it in a less-than-spectacular way.

Essentially the plot is a bunch of nonsense, it's just an excuse to see another white man/black man buddy comedy in the vein of "Lethal Weapon," "Running Scared," etc.

This is not a "good" movie but if it's on TV you might as well give it a go, it's hardly awful and certainly better than it could have turned out to be.

3/5
