Plot: Carol Ann MacKay is a fine, popular nurse at a retirement home, and spends her free time with her hunky athletic husband Wayne MacKay, who was the star of her school's football team when ... Runtime: 89 mins Release Date: 14 Apr 2000
Henry robs banks because that's 'where the money is'. Unfortunately, he has suffered a stroke and is confined to a wheelchair rendering his stealing days over. Or does it?The film starts with a flashback to Carol and Wayne leaving the prom as newly crowned King and Queen driving recklessly and crashing. Years later their relationship and life is stale and boring - but only Carol thinks so. It could be argued that the flashback is just an extraneous piece of action to keep the audience interested - which is true - but it also shows where Carol and Wayne are coming from and <more>
contrasts with the dull life they have now.The film asks you to root for criminals and isn't the first film to do that by any means but what I find interesting is what makes the normally moral cheer amorality. Harry had to all intents and purposes retired from a life of crime but, ironically, he gets his stolen money stolen and can't go to the police - for obvious reasons. Many in the audience would identify with Carol wanting to escape to something better. The potential victims are all big businesses and one of the owners in particular is a snotty tosser. And the plan is to rob without violence or the threat of violence.Where the Money Is never drags as it reaches its conclusion. The dialogue is always excellent and there are at least a couple of classic lines in there. Being very picky about plotting I couldn't fault the screenwriters' work.What struck me most about the film was the simplicity and economy of the writing. It's a crime that the film didn't make its money back domestically in theatres. It's meant to be Paul Newman's last ever film and it's good that it's something so artistically successful if not commercially so.
Hysterically funny and successful on many levels (by rollo_tomaso)
I thought this film was a perfect 10. Linda Fiorentino's offbeat screwball ex-prom-queen nurse was 50 times funnier, better-acted, and more interesting than Renee Zellweger's Nurse Betty. This movie was also more true to its own world. It also is a delightful throwback with no cursing, no nudity although some very perverse sex with clothes on , and minimal violence. The triangular chemistry, repartee, and interactions between the three stars was marvelous. Newman was brilliant as the zen-like bank robber. But, Mulroney more than held his own as the small-town loser husband, and was <more>
excellent in his relationship with Newman. I saw a couple of reviewers call this slow. I found it very fast, snappy, and whimsical. And, the sound-track was great too. All in all, this is one of the best caper films to hit the big screen since "The Sting."
This movie was very good! I picked it up after hearing great things about it and I thought it was going to be good, but not as good as it was!Paul Newman and Linda Fiorentino have marvelous chemistry onscreen, I couldn't take my eyes off of them. The plot was interesting and the movie never dragged. I was surprised at how clean the movie was. It was never vulgar or mean spirited, which added to its fun.Go out and get it if you can!10/10
a rousing good time (by jpaisan)
In playing a small town girl taken by the world wise con man, the chemistry between Fiorentino and Newman is perfect. Mulroney is basically Bud Bundy while Paul Newman is, well Paul Newman, and Fiorentino effortlessly falls for him, as does the audience.Well cast, well acted caper flick that runs on Newman's star quality.
A low-key caper film that hits the spot (by loupgarou-2)
This movie, like most caper films, builds slowly to a pretty satisfying conclusion. The three main stars are likable, and of course Paul Newman is a jewel as always. Linda is not as seductive as in some of her roles, but is,as always, a pleasure to watch. Some younger folks might find this too slow, but more mature audiences will probably enjoy it
Out Done (by NovDov18)
Paul Newman has out done himself again. It seems like the older he gets the better and better he gets. He still has his looks also with rocks. He is the best all time actor I swear. I loved the movie. I loved the story line and the actors and the cleanness of it if that's a word . I loved it!
A Must For All Paul Newman Fans (by bsmith5552)
You know, a lot of the reviews that I have read on this movie pan it. I'm afraid that I can't agree. THIS IS A GOOD MOVIE. Sure it doesn't have explicit sex, gratuitous violence or four letter words. What it does have is Paul Newman. The eternally youthful Newman returns to the role that he does best...the con artist. In "Where the Money Is", Newman plays an imprisoned bank robber who cons prison officials into believing that he has suffered a stroke. Because of overcrowding in the prison hospital, he is temporarily transferred to an outside facility. There, he comes <more>
under the care of nurse Linda Fiorentino and her husband Dermot Mulroney. Fiorentino suspects that Newman is faking it and sets out to find out what he is up to. What follows is a delightful caper reminiscent of some of Newman's earlier films. Newman, in his best part in years, really makes you believe that he has suffered a stroke, and even in his mid-70s proves that he can still charm the ladies. Fiorentino is sexy and ambitious and you wind up rooting for her and Newman to pull their caper off. Mulroney is also good as Fiorentino's sceptical husband. I don't think that today's younger movie goers really appreciate the talent of Paul Newman and I can only suggest that they go back and watch some of his earlier work to gain a better appreciation. "Where the Money Is" is a thoroughly enjoyable movie and is a must for all Paul Newman fans.
A Great, Fun Film to Be Seen to Be appreciated! (by Sylviastel)
I became a fan of Linda Fiorentino from watching her on Dogma over and over again on Comedy Central. I hope she's getting residual checks and new fans all over again. In this film, she plays Carol Ann McKay, a bored nurse in a retirement or nursing home who meets Paul Newman's character who is a retired professional heister. With her husband played by Dermot Mulroney, the three plan the ideal heist with an armored car. I read that Fiorentino and Newman got along very well on the film and both live in the same town in Connecticut. Fiorentino would have been willing to do a sex scene <more>
with him if she was given the opportunity. Anyway, the three are a great team. The story is pretty good because Fiorentino, Newman, and Mulroney make the lines come alive. I wish Fiorentino and Newman were still working making movies. As you get older in this business particularly females, you are over the hill over 40 years old. For men, it's different but even Newman has given up the acting part of the business because it's so uninspiring. Films like this never do well at the box office. It could have done very well on television or cable. Fiorentino is stunning at the end of the film. It's not all about the money as it is about getting away with it and the thrills and adrenalin of being and feeling alive.
this is a great film if you like caper flicks and/or paul newman. for those of you who have not yet seen this movie do not read further. but for those of you who have seen it but don't understand why carol was suspicious of henry consider the sex scene between her and her husband and how she placed henry's wheelchair so that he could not see what was occurring. after they finished and she returned to the bathroom area where henry was, she noticed that the bathroom mirror seemed to be in a different position, one which probably gave henry a clear view of the lovers. how could this have <more>
happened? next, when the old lady is choking on the nuts and there is no staff member around there is a sudden noise which brings everyone running. after the old lady is rescued carol notices that a lamp inexplicably had crashed which brought everyone running, and it had crashed right at henry's wheelchair. how could this have happened? but still, she is not certain that he is faking since she was readying herself to jump in the reservoir and rescue him when he climbed out of the water on his own.as to why two such upright citizens would suddenly become bank robbers, the opening scene of the movie shows carol's rebellious streak and wayne's willingness to go along with whatever she wants to do.by the way, carol is played by linda fiorentino, not florentino, and she starred in "the last seduction" not "the last deception" and it was great, if you haven't seen it.
