AMAZING CAST, okay plot (a few holes)

"The other reviewers do make a few good points. I'll admit, this not an amazing film, but I certainly enjoyed it. Watch it once and its kind of difficult to grasp. Watch it again, and everything comes together. A third time, and the film is just as good. A good cast brings comedy (not amazing, but worthwhile) to the film. All of the actors are well-cast and play their parts well, making a slightly shaky plot a lot more believable. This movie is not torture at all (as other reviewers said), and it is perfect for rainy days. I definentaly reccomend it."

"It seems like too many people don't understand the simple fact that this movie is not about the plot! It's not supposed to make sense! The entire movie is one giant nonsensical joke. It's kind of like Andy Kaufman and the fact that everything he did was all a part of an hilarious prank pulled on millions of people. This movie is a joke, and we--the viewers--are the punchline. It is meant to be like that. But then again, I guess if it weren't for people who hate the movie, it wouldn't be funny to people like myself.
For anyone who understands John Landis, this is a must-have!"
Get's a much needed boost by the charming cast.

"In Australia, this film is titled "Susan's Plan" which is, im sorry, a much better title than "Dying to get rich". The first time I saw the film I thought it was enjoyable enough, but I had an immediate urge to view it again, so I did, and it got more enjoyable. Not that much happens but for some unknown reason, I am drawn to it. The great cast is the only reason I can think of. What a killer group. If you saw it once and didn't think much.. See it again, you'll like it more. (P.S. Michael Biehn is a standout.)"

"This movie is so bad it hurts to watch it. With the cast, and John Landis directing, I expected at least modest entertainment, but this movie didn't deliver. Not only does the plot make no sense..Adrian Paul as the rich ex-boyfriend hasn't changed his will to cut out Natass after THREE years? but it has all these super irritating scenes that look like they are happening...I am a fan of Adrian Paul, I should have realized when he doesn't get mentioned on the jacket that his part was small..like 45 seconds. My recommendation..watch an old highlander episode and save your $."
