Goofs

Franklin purports to be Vic Damone Jr when meeting Guy. Guy deduces he's from Damone's marriage to Diahann Carroll. Damone married Carroll in 1987. If they had had any children, the oldest would have been 9 years old and Guy, who claimed to know Vic well would have realized Franklin was much to old to be Vic Damone Jr. See more »

Chris Tucker and Paul Sorvino should have had more scenes together
3 October 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

The movie that made director Brett Ratner a recognizable name is mostly another white-yuppie-and-black-ghetto-guy-have-to-join-up kind of story (summer 1997 also saw the release of the Tim Robbins-Martin Lawrence buddy comedy "Nothing to Lose"). But as far as I'm concerned, Chris Tucker - who earlier that summer had starred in "The Fifth Element" - is always funny enough to merit at least some recognition; and anyway, this sort of flick is supposed to be silly. While Charlie Sheen is far less entertaining in his role, Paul Sorvino played such an interesting character that I agreed with one of my friends that he and Chris Tucker should have gotten more scenes together. Truth be told, I'd actually never heard of Vic Damone until I saw this movie.

OK, so maybe we could be cynical and say that Chris Tucker just gets the same role in every movie. I still consider him funny, and I wish to assert that "Money Talks" is good for a few laughs. Worth seeing if only for that.
