Trivia

The house they lived in was on Richmond Way, Shepherds Bush, London. The end house was painted to look old and distressed. See Google Maps to compare. See more »

Goofs

(at around 59 mins) The couple have a conversation where their lips alternate between moving and not moving. It's either very strange editing or these people are telepathic. "Anne, let's go" (lips move) "What are we going to do, Tom?" (lips do not move) "Where are we going to go? (lips do not move) "We have one place where we can go" (lips do not move) "At least for a few hours." (Lips move again!) See more »

A movie that has been done so many times that nothing can help the repetition of the plot. A b-movie with better acting.
26 October 2014 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"Whenever you find a pot of gold there's always a monster guarding it." Tom (Franco) and Anna (Hudson) are married and struggling. They are weeks away from losing their house and the job market is dry. They are cleaning up an apartment of one of their tenants who died they find a huge bag of cash. After going back and forth on what to do with the bag they decide to just take what they need to keep the house for another month. Little by little they begin to take more but then someone comes looking for the money. Keep in mind when you read this that I watch every movie we order for the store. There are at least 2 movies a month that come out with the exact idea. The only difference this one has is that big name actors are in this. People find a bag of money with like $1 million in it and think what should we do...we will only spend a little of it to help us out. Soon most of the money is gone then they act shocked when someone comes looking for it. I have always wondered if a bad movie can be made good by adding great actors. According to this movie the answer is no. This is still a b-rate overdone movie with better acting. Overall, a movie that has been done so many times that nothing can help the repetition of the plot. I give this a C+.
