    Just as funny as I remember!

    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!!!

    Very funny, a must see!

    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!
