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

want to see a REALLY bad movie!!!
17 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

I saw the movie beer money not to long ago, it was introduced to me by a friend. Well this was not one of my friend's better movies. The thing i do not get out of the whole movie is why the paperboy's are bad people??? they kidnapped a guy and put his hair in a pan of milk,by the way i hated that scene . But the really stupid thing about this movie is they named it beer money but hardly talk about or drink much beer. I know they were going to sell the alien for beer money but it got out of hand. And I do not know why they had that shot in the begining of that movie when the guy put the dog's balls in his mouth. Anyway it was a USA original movie but I have seen alot better than this one. So by ending i say this movie has two kind of funny scenes in it besides that the film was a waste of time and money.
