Goofs

We don't see all of the "Lexington Av & Queens" sign, but the part we see is for the E train. As the man is being pushed, we can glimpse a sign on another platform for F trains only, implying that the E and F have separate tracks at this station. Yet the train is an F. Later, when John and Charlie return to the station, the same platform is marked for both E and F trains. See more »

Quotes

Donald Patterson: Did I say that? I didn't say that! All I said was... bad things tend to happen around you two. Some money got lost and I think you two can help me find it.
Charlie: How so?
Donald Patterson: You look for it!

Very Average but still good .
27 February 2006 | by shadowman123See all my reviews

Money Train is one of those films that is NOT A MUST SEE , but it is worth a check out if it is on the TV or if you got nothing better to do on your Friday night then its worth a rent . In my opinion I found it a lot more enjoyable then White Men Can't Jump , its sort of like a down graded high speed version of Oceans 11 . The chemistry between Snipes and Harrelson is spot on and it works well for a third time . There is not much of a plot to the film just an average screw your average ass-hole boss movie which I like at this point and time because it reminds me of the relationship I have with my boss not to mention the slight money problems I'm having . Jennifer Lopez just bobs up now and then but in this case her screen presence is welcoming . I don't want to be fussy and pick out several little pieces and analyse them , this film was a simple time killing pop-corn movie that should viewed when you don't feel like watching something heavy or you'd rather check this out rather than Santa's Slay .

MONEY TRAIN - 5.6 OUT 10 - THATS WHAT WE LIVE WITH .
