Rodney Dangerfield at his funniest. He lives in New Yorker and he's a real slob just living his life. He drinks too much, smokes too much, and eats too much too. He also likes to gamble, take drugs, stay out late, and carouse around with his friends who are just like him. His mother-in-law is a multi-millionaire who owns a major upscale downtown department store. For years she has been trying to "straighten him out", but without success. His wife and her cousin are the heirs to her mother's fortune, and her cousin seems to have the lead because of Rodney's careless lifestyle. Rodney's daughter is getting married to a Mexican/Puerto Rican gang member. Rodney hates him. You could say that his entire family is totally disfunctional.
Suddenly everything changes when the mother-in-law dies in a plane crash. Her will has a few conditions though. . . In order for Rodney and his wife to inherit he has one year to completely change. He has to lose weight and get down to 175 lbs. No more, drinking, smoking, drugs, junk food, gambling, staying out late, hanging around with his friends, etc. If he can't do all of it, the entire estate goes to the ass kissing cousin. Initially, Rodney says no, but his whole family beggs him to try. His nutty daughter comes home from the honeymoon the next day, because she is afraid to have sex. Her imbesile husband tries to impress her by acting bad, and in the process shoots Rodney in the ass. Laid up in the hospital for weeks he is able to lose the weight and meet the contract to inherit the $10M. This is a funny movie and only Rodney Dangerfield can pull it off like this. A constant laugh!
This movie came out in 1982,1983 if I remember well? This was my first introduction to actor/comedian Rodney Dangerfield. This film also included a well known actor by the name of Joe pesci. Many laughs and memory's I had watching this movie.I had this on vhs around 1994 and lost it when being damaged in the Northridge Earthquake. Luckily I found it again here on ebay. This movie has many inside jokes,crude humor and many drug references. "Monty" which is Dangerfield's character, is a self observed husband and father that loves smoking cigarettes and other things,drinking,gambling,women and fast food. He then finds out his mother in law is coming to stay, she is not too fond about him. Monty finds out she dies and inherits her money. That does not come easy. Monty has to decided to clean up his act or he gets no doe.
Great movie to watch with friends after a football game or a 24 pack of your favorite booze.
This movie Easy Money is about a guy who tries to make mends meet in order to get the money from his estate. Rodney Dangerfield stars is this sad movie.
This is one of Rodney's best movies! It is right up ther with "Back to School." Great movie to introduce your family to Rodney's special humor. The other actors in the movie also did a great job, very funny.
