Storyline

Monte Peterson, a rich real-estate developer, is going through his third divorce. His friend Ray has found a good site for a ski resort in Utah, and Monte comes to bid on the land, competing with local banker Preston Gates. Monte knew that, in order to take possession of the land, he would have to convert to the local religion, a sort of cross between Mormonism and Amish (no smoking, no drinking, bigamy and simple living/dressing encouraged). What he didn't know was that the deed to the land also included the three wives of the deceased former owner. He also buys another plot, and the two wives that come with it, in part because they are much better cooks. Gates, meanwhile, wants the land to build an Indian casino, and is mixed up with some mobsters. There's a trip to Las Vegas, a female-empowerment seminar, a jailbreak, and other complications too absurd to mention. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Sweet, Yet another Rodney great!!
15 November 2000 | by (Cali) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of Rodney even though he is way before my time, I'm only 19 so most of his stuff was done before I was around. Now I just watch as many as I can and I was amazed to find out that he is actually still working which is great because he is one of the funniest guys I've seen, I saw Wally Sparks and Godson among others in the past but now he came out with this masterpiece called my 5 Wives. It's simply a Rodney Dangerfield look at mormans, mainly the sexual side heh. I can't and won't spoil anything of course but trust me if you love the usual Rodney then he has nothing to let you down with in this flick. Keep em coming Rodney never retire!!!

The only reason you could hate this movie is if you are a big prude or just not a fan of Rodney's type of perverted humor, if none of those bother you then I can personally guarantee you will love this movie like I did.
