Money isn't everything
For me this is the like of such comedies as Radin! which seem light-hearted, silly, too hyperbolized and over the top on the surface that turn out to be something more than meets the eye. Like with most comedies it takes a problem, overly dramatizes it in favor of laughs (which are almost non-existent here), spices it up with a bit of family drama, love story, mistaken identity issues and we have it, almost word-for-word, a blueprint for an average comedy movie to waste your saturday night on. But is it really that bad to be so formulaic? I think not. Radin! has plenty to give, from the thought about where do our taxes go to the simple truth of not judging a book by its cover; it also provides us with a good portion of drama (although also a bit formulaic in terms of performance) and unwillingly squeezes the tears out of the eyes - what you never expect from a comedy - which totally gives this movie more credit and a couple of extra points to my final rating. Overall this is a no time-waster, there is a laugh and a smirk here and there (mostly in one scene) with something to think about afterwards but despite that it's just all too safe, overly exaggerated and too unfunny to be a comedy.
