Storyline

Tim, a failed weatherman, returns to his small hometown to hang out with his high school friends, Rut, a fat jock and Neal, a bald geek. They go camping and sight a UFO landing. They hide in the bushes and watch as a small green alien, Greenie, rummages through their packs and eats their food. With the idea that they could make enough beer money for life Rut shoots Greenie as he is making his way back to the ship. The helpless Greenie has the ability to regenerate though, and Rut has to kill him several more times in various cruel and violent ways. They also torture the alien to try and get it to 'talk'. A female friend comes to the rescue and convinces Tim that they must let the alien go home. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

It's OK to kill the time
25 February 2004 | by (Holland a.k.a. The Netherlands, that's not Belgium or Germany!!) – See all my reviews

I mainly watched Beer Money to see if Mark-Paul Gosselaar can assure you that he's popular for his acting and not for his SBTB-time. Well, he didn't. His acting wasn't too good. I liked Mercedes McNab and Nick von Esmarch (am I spelling that right?) better. There are a few funny scenes, but most of the time it's not even of second-class-quality. The story wasn't always clear to me. And I also wonder why they called it Beer Money. That's mentioned once in the movie, but has nothing to do with the rest. It seemed like a weak copy of E.T. Maybe this movie is funnier for little kids, but if you don't know what to do, this movie is OK to kill the time.
