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

Beer money is dead broke!
19 October 2001 | by (Fort Lauderdale, Florida) – See all my reviews

Beer money is the most embarrasing movie and tv show I Can ever think of, This is a rip-off of e.t. meets goonies meets dawson's creek, the storyline: Three people found in alien on the crashed ship and they sell their alien to the television show, well they get there or not, this is not good, it has stupid characters, dumb performances and one of the worst special effects I Can think off, this is an appauling bad film and tv show, that goes to the top of my list next to emeril and according to jim for the worst of the year.
