Funny all the way through.

I wish they could make movies even half as funny as Easy Money today. unfortunately they can not due to lack of creativity, the Hollywood agenda and political correctness. Fortunately there are great older movies like this, foreign films, 250 years of books and good friends.

Easy hearing (web)

I like how movies can sometimes parallel my own life: this movie is about a head of family compelled to change his daily life to be rich while from this week, I try also to change my bad habits to gain more audition. So as the expected addiction movies, we have the necessary up and down moments of rehabilitation but strangely, this plot comes late in the movie: before that, we have his fun (loose) life with friends exposed and the wedding of his prude daughter played by Jenny. In a whole, the movie is a bit disjointed but what a fun it is! I discover this Rodney with Caddyshack in which he was really crazy and here, he repeats the same flair for fun: it's cool to have a comedy man with such physical presence and sharp humor because there are no more like them in today American movies! He is a sort of Al Bundy on screen with the difference that his family is much more educated and serious and each family member has something (funny) to do. At last, the movie has a great nostalgic value: we see a lot of talented names in their young (Jenny, great Joe Pesci, slim Jeffrey Jones) and this 80s America was indeed a cool place to live! So you got working family + life in NYC borough + laughs all along the movie so I can't imagine how you could be disappointed ???

Rodney goes without

Rodney Dangerfield made his name in low brow slobbish roles. In Easy Money he plays Monty Capuletti, a kids photographer in New York. He is a working class guy who likes to eat junk food, drink, visit strip clubs, smoking dope and gamble with his friends which includes Joe Pesci and Tom Noonan.

His mother in law, Geraldine Fitzgerald is actually a wealthy woman who owns a high end department store and she hates Monty with a passion. When she dies, she stipulates in her will that if Monty is able to give up his vices for a year, by eating good food, giving up drugs and gambling, he will receive $10 million. If he cannot, his family will get nothing and her scheming nephew Jeffrey Jones will inherit everything.

The film is a bit hit and miss but is sporadically amusing. It feels rather underpowered maybe because you feel both Pesci and Noonan are underused. The film has a good theme song by Billy Joel.

The subplot of Monty's daughter marrying a Puerto Rican and then is reluctant to loser her virginity to him comes across as clunky.

Still Dangerfield reduxed the bare bones of the story a few years later and called it Back to School.
