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

Good harmless fun...
24 June 2001 | by (East Lansing,MI) – See all my reviews

Beer Money was a made-for-cable movie I tuned in on by accident. An hour and a half later i was still watching. In my opinion, the movie did it's job. I have to admit, I enjoy most Adam Sandler type movies, along with the early Jim Carrey flicks, and in that fashion Beer Money kept me laughing. The casting of the three goof ball friends was the key to this goofy script. These guys deliver in the movie. If you enjoy a movie that doesn't challenge you...you will enjoy Beer Money. If you didn't like it, you probably don't like that type of humor and just wanted to watch it in order to post a review that rips the movie. I wouldn't waste your time if I were you, this probably was never intended to be A.I. or E.T.

By the way, if you liked the bathroom scene from Dumb & Dumber, this rip-off scene from "Beer" will crack you up. They did a great job of keeping that scene funny.
