Tonally confused direction, a terminally contrived plot and inconsistent character actions make this nothing more than a light 1980s curio. Too bad, because Hanks and Long do show some chemistry here.
Good watch, would watch again, and can recommend.
Despite this movie releasing in 1986, this movie actually dates really well. With the focus being much more on the horror of real estate and property maintenance, things like smart phones aren’t relevant to the story. This could easily be rebooted beat for beat as all the points are still relevant today and the script is well written.
I’m not sure who the equivalent actors to Tom Hanks (“Forest Gump”) and Shelley Long (“Cheers”) are today, but they would have to be quality expressionists to make the movie work. While some of the jokes are baked into the script with situational destruction around the house, it really is the actor performances that sell the emotion and charm of the movie.
Well worth the watch, and the trip in the way back machine.
They testing missiles here or what?
The Money Pit is directed by Richard Benjamin and written by David Giler. It stars Tom Hanks, Shelley Long, Alexander Godunov and Maureen Stapleton. Music is by Michael Colombier and cinematography by Gordon Willis. Plot finds Hanks and Long as a young couple who buy what they think is their dream house, only to find the house falling apart around them.
Mozart is dead, his troubles are over.
He went on to be a big mover in the acting world did Tom Hanks, so much so it’s always a little weird revisiting his comedy output in the 1980s because he’s a vastly different actor now. Yet for many of us, that decade holds many treasures, where nostalgic fever takes a hold and a warm glow does come with watching the young Hanks bound about with comedic glee. The Money Pit doesn’t have the cult worship of Splash or the internet respect of Big, yet it’s a wonderfully funny picture that finds Hanks on optimum energised form. The plot might be thin and Long kind of gets pushed to one side, but this has much to enjoy with a bottle of vino and snacks. That is, of course, if you don’t mind laughing at the misfortune of new home owners?! I am sinking fast into the money pit.
A number of sequences are pure farce, but in the good way, stairs collapse, as does the chimney, doors, floors and a leaking roof bring the mirth, as does a laugh out loud bath moment. It sounds a little chaotic, and it is at times, but the screenplay allows Hanks & Long, and the wonderful Godunov, time to breath life into the characters. There’s a lovely romance at the core of the story, one that inevitably will be tested by the chaos of the house renovations and Godunov’s third party ex. They are a very likable couple and easy to root for. Helps that Hanks is full of effervescent boyishness and Long is so homely and pretty, the latter of which I don’t think has ever looked better than during a red dress sequence here.
If the foundation is OK? Then everything else can be fixed.
It doesn’t have any surprises in store, it goes exactly where you expect it too, which naturally renders the final third as being all about the sentiment and the message. With the comedy gone, picture struggles a touch to put the final coat of paint on the project. But it’s nicely underplayed by the actors and really this is about love triumphant against adversity. With the laughs that came previously more than making this a blues lifter for the nostalgic amongst us. 7.5/10
Mr. Hanks builds his dream (make that “nightmare”) house
I know, the critics ripped at “The Money Pit” when it got released. They apparently didn’t realize that it wasn’t pretending to be a masterpiece; it was a big excuse to be funny, and they succeed. Some of the gags her seem to forecast the equally funny “Mousehunt”. Personally, I think that Tom Hanks needs to act in some more comedies, and Shelley Long needs to get more roles in movies. My favorite scene? Well, I get the giggles whenever I think of the whole chain reaction. Just the kinds of things about which anyone should worry when moving into a new house (although my family didn’t have such experiences when we moved into our house).
All in all, it shows that Richard Benjamin is as great a director as he is an actor. My generation ought to give him the recognition that my parents’ generation gave him. Also starring Alexander Godunov (one of the Amish guys in “Witness”), Maureen Stapleton, Joe Mantegna and Josh Mostel.
