Overview

Adapting the themes of the 1948 film Mr. Blandings Builds his Dream House, this comedy stars Tom Hanks as Walter Fielding, who with his love Anna (Shelley Long) decides to buy a suburban New York home for next-to-nothing. Both Anna and Walter are willing to fix what ails the house and since they are both successful professionals, that should not be too difficult. Unfortunately, what ails the house might be terminal as the rest of the film chronicles the battle between the couple and the disintegrating structure. Construction workers come in to make matters either worse or better -- or both.

This movie really does match it's title. This couple moves into this (what I think is Incredible) mansion that needs extensive work. As they live in it, it starts to really fall apart and they do all they can to try and fix it up. As the house falls apart, they as a couple, also begin to fall apart. The ending is wonderful. This movie is a comedy and partly romance. Be sure to watch it, you won't regret it!

My husband and I recently purchased our own "Money Pit" as we've so affectionately called it. As we watched this movie, it was funny to relate our trials and headaches to theirs - often having made the same comments. Luckily for us - our's hasn't ended in any maritial issues!! Great movie - stands the test of time. Any do-it-yourselfer can appreciate!!!
