  1. The laugher about a meek middle manager who finds a life-changing fortune takes a while to hit its stride, but in its best stretches, it offers deliriously spirited farce.

    Greif obviously ascribes to the Blake Edwardian school of comedy, laying out gags with commendable topographical precision. But, unlike Edwards' unique mixture of sophistication and slapstick, Funny Money falls squarely in the tradition of pure farce, itself an anomaly in this age of aggressively abrasive personality comedies.
  3. Once the farce finds its stride, however, it's generally worth the wait.

    The critic who said it was "never quite hilarious, but always amusing" is just about right, although I found it more along the lines of a The critic who said it was "never quite hilarious, but always amusing" is just about right, although I found it more along the lines of a steady stream of boredom with an occasional laugh. I definitely wouldn't recommend this to any of my friends, but if you are a big Chevy Chase fan you might enjoy it, although it's no where near as good as any of his older comedies. Collapse
