Overview

Norman Jewison directed Alvin Sargent's adaptation of Jerry Sterner's off-Broadway satire of the excess of the '80s, with Danny DeVito as corporate raider Lawrence Garfield -- or, as he is better known, Larry the Liquidator. Larry spends his waking hours searching for companies to take over. One morning he comes across New England Wire & Cable, a company that has seen better days but is not debt-ridden and contains plenty of cash. Licking his chops, Larry hopes to raid the company and strip its assets. But the company's president, Andrew Jorgenson (Gregory Peck), wants to continue in the wire and cable business. For help, Andrew seeks out his daughter-in-law, Kate Sullivan (Penelope Ann Miller), a New York attorney who is as obsessive about saving Andrew's company as Larry is about destroying it. When she walks into Larry's office, Larry immediately falls in love. But they are adversaries, and they have to decide if love or corporate buyouts come first. This all comes to a head during a shareholder's meeting inside the factory, where both Andrew and Larry state their cases regarding Andrew's beloved company.

    Corporate Takeover Wall Street versus Traditional America

    Other People's Money is a morality play. Danny DeVito is superb as a Wall Street corporate raider who loves money. Gregory Peck is excellent as the CEO of a New England family owned and managed company who cares about his employees and community. DeVito, despite being a caricature of greed and outright vulgar at times is still likable and funny. The difference between the financial world of paper, computer entries and money and the real economic world that most people live in is sharply expressed. The speeches by Peck and DeVito at the shareholder's meeting are, at times, moving and raise questions not only about what makes America great, but also about human nature. Supporting characters are also excellent. Unless you are intolerant of profanity or Wall Street, you can't go wrong with this one.

    Excellent Film

    Takes basic economics out of the textbook and puts it on the screen with great acting, interesting plot, and romantic interest. I recommend the film for those people who want to understand more about the challenges faced by small business. The film is both funny and sad--a great combo. I just wished the main characters hadn't smoked as much.

    Entertaining

    Other People's Money is a good "feel good" and yet hilarious movie about a Wall St. corporate raider played by Danny Devito who sets his target on a debt free, nearly century old company whose balance sheets are whistle clean. However, the fictitious company, New England Wire & Cable has a few gatekeepers that are prepared to give this capitalist a run for his money. The head gatekeeper, "Jorgy" played by legendary screen star Gregory Peck delivers a sensational performance as its chairman and major shareholder. This clash of the titans sets the stage for a battle, full of comedy I might add, between New England Wire's champion, played by Penelope Ann Miller, as the rival attorney who challenges Devito's character at his game. Weapons of choice- a concoction of wit, connivery, wheedling, deception, charm, and what else, seduction. The movie is a good primer on the nomenclatures of hostile takeovers and corporate dealings. You learn various buzz words like 13-Ds, green mail, and stock buybacks. You also get to witness a good ol' fashion throw back proxy fight at a shareholder's meeting. Your time invested will be amusingly rewarded.
