Synopsis

For everyone who's ever been deeply in Love or deeply in debt.

After being evicted from their Manhattan apartment, a couple buy what looks like the home of their dreams—only to find themselves saddled with a bank-account-draining nightmare. Struggling to keep their relationship together as their rambling mansion falls to pieces around them, the two watch in hilarious horror as everything—including the kitchen sink—disappears into the Money Pit.

    Tom Hanks-A-Thon: Film #7

    Save yourself…
    I am sinking fast into The Money Pit,
    and I don’t want to drag you down with me.
    So save yourself while there’s still time!

    Tom Hanks and Shelley Long are trapped.

    Not by a bad home purchase, but by a one joke premise that repeatedly tortures not only them, but the audience as well.

    It doesn’t help that Richard Benjamin thinks he’s directing a live action cartoon that’s packed with cheesy music and exaggerated humor. Throughout the film you’re pummeled over and over again by these incredibly broad sight-gags that you see coming a mile away.

    There’s a great moment when Hanks breaks out in a obnoxious bout of mock laughter and while…

  • Review by ele 🪷 ★★½

    shelley long desperately trying to find a working outlet to plug her kettle into to make tea resulting in a rube goldberg chain of events which causes tom hanks to be covered in white paint and to be flung off the roof of his house is a pretty accurate depiction of the lengths I would go to to have my morning cup of tea.

    English Version below


    Es ist so weit.
    Alle Vorbereitung als ein banges Warten, ein Herunterzählen der Tage im Senken zu Stunden und gegen Ende zu verrinnenden Minuten ihrer einst doch so fernen Anzahl, haben ihr Ende gefunden, wurden ausradiert einer Macht jenseits des Greifbaren mit ihrer Anwesenheit verrotteten Gemüses, zu Staub zermalmten Mauerwerks, zu Asche aufgehender Stoffe im Gerüst des Kohlenstoffes.

    Ein „soweit“ in der sich in der Eins wie der doppelten nachkommenden manifestierenden Zahl. Eine Ansage wie ein Befehl. Der Ist-stand wie die Norm. Ein Gesetz so alt wie die Physik selbst.

    Sie prangern wie die Gehenkten von den Giebeln über Rochester. Taumeln ihrer fehelenden Standhaftigkeit an ihrem Galgen. Schwingen ihre Aufmerksamkeit flickflackschlagend behängt mit den Lichterketten bei Hornbach,…

  • Review by McKenzie Dohrmann ★★★★ 3

    Dumb? Sure. Weird? Yes. Hilarious? ABSOLUTELY! I mean it was the 80’s! A lot of strange films were created within that decade. EVERY character is hilarious in their own way, this movie f*cking funny!

    Trust me this movie is actually funny, and most comedies aren’t. This movie deserves to have WAY more of a cult following!

    This movie is both endearing and hilarious! Goofy in a purely delightful way. Can love survive “The Money Pit?” 😂 You should watch this if you haven’t when you are in the mood for an over-the-top comedy! 80’s style!

  • Review by Carlo V

    An actual horror movie if you've ever done any construction on your old ass house.

  • Review by Wesley Stenzel ★★

    Tom Hanks becomes the king of dopey slapstick in The Money Pit. He bumbles his way through his cursed fixer-upper for almost the entire length of the film, providing some stellar visual gags and creative scenarios.

    Unfortunately, these jokes are few and far between, and the film feels completely lifeless in every moment when Hanks isn’t being tormented by his demon house. There’s practically no story, and his wife, played by Shelley Long, is annoying, unfunny, and unsympathetic, just like every other person in the movie. A five minute supercut of all the house gags would be a worthwhile watch on YouTube, but the overall movie definitely isn’t.
