Storyline

A black comedy revolving around the humiliating lengths that people will resort to in order to get by in an unstable financial world from applying for welfare to the compromise of personal ideals to all out robbery. The film follows four characters - two leftover punks from the 80s, a typical gray-suited businessman and a vegetarian idealist - in their desperate struggle to hold onto their respective stations in life. These deftly interwoven stories form a cautionary tale of how people deal with the search for quick cash. In desperate times, even good people turn to bad money. Written by John Hazlett and Blake Brooker

Extremely underrated, as it is very funny, but without lavish production values
22 April 2000 | by (In shame (2005 update)) – See all my reviews

'Bad Money' is not a great film, it's an average or slightly above average comedy that's neither big or memorable. Still, the producers/director did wonders with a limited budget, and it is at times very funny.

Academy Award winner Graham Greene (Thunderheart, Dances With Wolves) does a very good job, and whoever wrote the script also deserves credit.

The plot is original and the quirky characters, especially Graham Greene's extremely annoying wife, are hilarious. The climax leaves something to be desired, as it is quite non-Hollywood, but doesn't quite succeed on all levels.

7/10
