Excellent exploration of mid-30's men and enduring friendship.
2 September 2000 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

Net Worth is a very compelling story about 4 men in their mid-30's who make a bet to see who will have the greatest net worth after one month. The catch: they must all start over in a new city with no background, just $100 and the clothes on their backs. It's a marvelous exploration of how the men come to evaluate themselves and their relationships through this process of surviving as fish out of water. Most importantly, it never becomes sappy. These seem like real guys with some of the same issues as friends of mine, and the story feels kind of like "City Slickers" with an edge. Michael T. Weiss is riveting as Michael Winslow, a charming ladies' man. Daniel Baldwin is perfect as the smarmy stockbroker Robert Freedman. Highly recommended, and it will be appreciated by men and women alike.
