VIDEO CAPSULE: Money Pit (7/10)

Money Pit (1986)

An easy watch. A film that I've seen countless times but one which still manages to amuse me every time. This was Tom Hanks pre-Oscar boy, when he was just another working actor/comedian like the rest of them. Shelley Long also worked as the goofy wife. Too bad her career took a nosedive soon thereafter.

A funny film with a great cameo by Joe Mantegna, a touching moment or two, but mostly just goofiness and memorable one-liners. Steven Spielberg as executive producer. I guess that's when he and Hanks starting becoming buddy/buddy.

Starring Tom Hanks, Shelley Long, Alexander Godunov

me too ...

Isn't it the sign it's a great film & it'd deserve more than a "7" ?

The last time I saw it, it was a while ago, but I'd say 9,5

Nah! As you may know, I'm quite picky when it comes to grading flicks. Too picky maybe!

I might actually give it a 7.5, but the point is, it's a very funny movie... [img]/ubb/wink.gif[/img]

Yep, you hit it on the head with the Money Pit. I usually watch at least half an hour of it when it's on TV.

I have to stick with JB's rating. There are much, much better comedies out there.

And Shelly Long was 100% on in Dr T. She even almost gave me a woody (but I'm older).
