"Hilarious Rodney Dangerfield film with a great plot & situations, classic lines, and Joe Pesci! Rodney plays Monty, a "family man" and baby photographer in Staten Island, NY whose mother-in-law has passed away. In her will she has left Monty millions of dollars if he can give up all vices (smoking,drinking,gambling,carousing, overeating)for one year. Rodney's not all that bad. He loves his family and most of all, loves children..hence his profession. How he handles children while he works is evident in the opening of the film which is very touching. The plot revolves around Monty trying give up his temptations and he is helped by his family in various ways and by his good friend Nicky (a hilarious Joe Pesci). In the meantime, Clive (Jeffrey Jones) an associate of Monty's mother-in-law is trying in every way to stop Monty from gaining that inheritance by underhandedly tempting him in various ways. Also, there is a subplot of his daughter,Allison (Jennifer Jason Leigh-FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH), upcoming marriage to Julio (Taylor Negron - THE LAST BOYSCOUT). Most ot the scenes are tailored for Dangerfield's one-liners and his misadventures with Pesci. Also, there is a hilarious segment where Monty develops a new fashion look called the "Regular Guy Look" based on bowling shirts and baggy polyester pants. There are a few tender moments showing that Dangerfield has a little depth beneath the patter and works well in the film. Overall, a very entertaining film with funny characters, decent and funny story , script and a great title song written and performed by Rock-n-Roll Hall of Famer, Billy Joel from his "Innocent Man" album dedicated to the 60's soul sound. Note / Classic Line: Monty(Dangerfield) - "My Mother-In-Law...All those years I wouldn't kiss her on the face, and I end up kissing her ---!""

"Years ago I was in stitches watching Rodney Dangerfield's performance in Caddyshack after that I hired Easy Money on vhs and that was just as good. So I bought it on dvd and was shocked to see that one of the best scenes of the film had been cut out. It's in the peak of his "rehabilitation" from drugs, booz, gambling and fast/fatty foods. He is at a boxing match and everyone around him including his mates are drinking, smoking and eating their hearts out and it gets to him so much he sees himself as one of the men in the boxing ring getting pounded on. It's quite a long scene and snippets of this footage are on the trailer on the dvd yet not in the film itself. It's a great scene and I don't know why they cut it out. 5 stars with the scene and 4 stars without it!"

"Forget everything after this, If you like Rodney Dangerfield this is the only movie you need to own it gets funnier evrytime you see it. Rodney and Joe Pesci are hilarious as the try to keep Rodney on the straight and narrow so he doesn't lose his inheritance. The Movie started the "Regular Guy Look" if you've seen this film you know what it is if you don't, check it out and you will be sporting that look. Excellent performances all around."
Missing the Boxing Match scene!!!!

"They cut out the Boxing match scene where the lovely Kimberly McArthur(the babe on the lawn) is re-exposed to Rodney when her top pops open in temptation! WHY DID THEY CUT THIS SCENE OUT OF THE VHS AND DVD RELEASES??? Otherwisw, it's a funny movie."
