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

incredibly underrated film class if its own
4 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Beer money is a superb Hollywood ufo / comic / dude flick in the style of state trooper only far funnier, dry sublime acting and an a-list cast including the stunning mercedes mcnab. Classic moments involve Mark-Paul Gosselaar addressing mercedes bosoms for most of the movie to hilarious effect, the on running diarrhea gags will make you belly laugh, The amazing soundtrack is worth a listen alone if you are an extreme sports fan. definitely echoes its poorer cousin weird science and goonies but neither of those hold a candle to this stunning piece of cinematography

i'm surprised this movie doesn't rate in the top 250 charts but trust it will become a cult classic.
