Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Three years after Caddyshack showed that he could get laughs on the big screen, Rodney Dangerfield headlined his own feature, Easy Money. The dusty story line about a slob trying to earn millions by improving himself is ancient, but Dangerfield's spin on it provides a fair number of laughs. From the opening scene involving a disastrous attempt by Dangerfield's character to photograph a children's birthday party, the film revels in bad behavior. Joe Pesci provides adequate support as the best friend. He does not have much to do, but to be fair, it is not his movie. It's easy to lose interest in the film when anybody other than Dangerfield is onscreen, but there are very few of those moments. Easy Money is a pure example of a film that works better than it should thanks to the energy and persona of the star for whom the film was tailored.

    Easy Money

    A superstar combination of Rodney and Joe Pesci, resulting in the funniest movie ever made. I truly would love a sequel to this one.

    I agree with Reggie.

    This movie is the best Rodney Dangerfield movie ever. Just like Reggie states above: if you don't find this movie funny at all then you truly must be an idiot. Joe Pesci shoud a have gotten an Oscar for his role after he said,''I am the one who put the bathrooms in this joint''. A splendid performance by Rodney Dangerfield, for he is the one who once was a baby and now is a baby photographer. Remember that his mother-in-law was an inspiration for twin beds.

    Non-Stop Comedy

    This movie is up there with Tommyboy, Animal House and Meet The Parents. If you don't find this funny you are an Idiot.
