Goofs

In the beginning of the movie, when the bad guy gets to the gasoline station to ask Franklin about the money he owes him, the car he drives is a big Mercedes S-Class. However, when the car is shown inside the car wash (only front bumper and headlight are visible) it's another Mercedes - a sporty SL 2 seater. See more »

Chris Tucker + Charlie Sheen = Brilliant
24 June 2009 | by lil_mexx31See all my reviews

A Classic Action Comedy. This in my opinion is Chris Tucker at his best. From the opening scene to the end, Chris Tucker is hilarious. From the funny looking hair cut to the cussing and singing, he reminds you of Eddie Murphy in Beverly Hills Cop. Charlie Sheen also does an impressive job. The action scenes are not spectacular, but it does a good job.

Money talks is a good blend of Guns/Explosions and laughter. If your a fan of 48 Hours, Nothing To Lose or any other Action Comedy, Money talks is a must see.

7.4/10
