"Where The Money Is" happens to be one of the most enjoyable films I've seen all year.

Life for her as the prom queen who married football hero Dermot Mulroney has turned really dull.

The movie is short, but still seems boring at parts.

Carol lives with her husband, in the same drab town where she grew up.

Boring!

When you add Paul Newman's humor and comedy with great support from Linda Fiorentino and Dermot Mulroney you have a rousing success in "Where The Money Is.

Add to this a wonderful performance by Linda Fiorentino, as a small-town girl who deserved a chance to grow, but ended up tied into a mundane life with a dull husband.

"Where The Money Is" happened to be one of the most enjoyable films I've seen all year.

Linda Fiorentino is adequate in her role as Carol, bored small town wife/physical therapist.

The movie is entertaining and Paul Newman did a great job!!

Dermot Mulroney takes on the task of portraying the annoying character, but his performance was at times very entertaining.

Enjoyable Flick with funny moments.

"Where The Money Is" happened to be one of the most enjoyable films I've seen all year.

I found it very fast, snappy, and whimsical.

Though, it is a fine entertaining movie, for me, more than that Oscar winning movie of the 1970s.

"Where The Money Is" played to everybody's funny bone because Newman gives one of his most engaging performances.

The planning and execution of the heist and subsequent robberies is so 'by-the-numbers' and routine that it lacks any real suspense (even the 'glitches' are predictable!

Just bored with life and don't truly appreciate the risk and danger involved.

Not overly witty or fast, it was a good, entertaining story and he played his role perfectly.

Worth watching if you're a fanatical Newman fan, NOT worth watching for any other reason

Although none of the three are brilliant, their deliveries do enough to give the film a light but engaging air that does help cover all the problems.

It's fun and entertaining, without anything really special about it.

When you add Paul Newman's humor and comedy with great support from Linda Fiorentino and Dermot Mulroney you have a rousing success in "Where The Money Is.

He was cool in his role but the story is too slow paced and didn't impress me at all.

But don't blame me if you missed it because of falling asleep during watching it...

What an exciting flick!

Note To Self: If Bored, Try A Bank Heist .

Still, despite a lackluster script, the film is enjoyable because of Paul Newman.

Don't waste your money if you don't have to.

The interraction between the 3 main characters is fun to watch and again, entertaining while maintaining realism.

Someone bored with their simple life is itching to do something rash to feel a thrill or even a better connection with a man.

Paul Newman stars as an aging bank robber who stages a different type of prison escape; Linda Fiorentino and Dermot Mulroney are the small town couple (former king and queen of the prom) who are bored and decide to go along with Newman's new life of crime.

"Where The Money Is" plays to everybody's funny bone because Newman gives one of his most engaging performances.

It is still hard to shake off the feeling that this is nonsense because it really is, albeit it quite enjoyable nonsense.

This movie is very entertaining, plus it has Paul Newman in it.

She's bored as a former prom queen always is.

a very entertaining film .

I highly recommend it as a "feel good" temporary diversion.

The opportunity is played by an old Newman, who could be a look alike for Tom Cruise father: same look, same authority, same wit… Their plan to rob a lot of money is thrilling to follow, especially when there is absolutely not the usual gunfire or violence!

Slow Paced Thriller .

Fiorentino is stunning at the end of the film.

"Where the Money Is" is a thoroughly enjoyable movie and is a must for all Paul Newman fans.

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.

It is, however, somewhat entertaining.

"Where The Money Is" played to everybody's funny bone because Newman gives one of his most engaging performances.

But as if to test his powers, in the shagging and intriguing caper "Where the money is", Newman plays Henry, a former famous bank robber and current guest of the prison system who actually is in a coma, or at least a stroke like state of suspended animation.

For men, it's different but even Newman has given up the acting part of the business because it's so uninspiring.

Newman and Fiorentino deliver a fun, witty movie that is really entertaining to watch.

The cat and mouse game between Fiorentino and Newman liven up the first part of the movie, but then they get into a tired caper that just dragged.

" The most intriguing part of this movie is the question on whether Newman's character is actually incapacitated, or simply faking it.

Very funny at times and thoroughly enjoyable.

Entertaining, Funny, and Original .

If you want to see a movie that isn't that complicated or exciting, thrilling etc. okay then it's a 'must see'.

Don't see this movie if you have a ton of others you'd like to see, but it's enjoyable to watch.

Overall a fairly poor film in terms of plotting and characterisation but one that somehow still manages to be fun and entertaining.

a rousing good time .

Especially Dermot Mulroney, who must be the most dull actor in the business.

The corollary principle is that, given the choice between patronizing a film that is original, complex and meaningful and one that is derivative, simpleminded and thematically empty, the mass audience will go with the latter type every time.

This was an enjoyable romp and we certainly recommend it to any movie goer.

We took a flyer and rented this movie last night and really enjoyed it.
