    A preposterous plot, but it's not about a plot, it's about acting.

    The film never drags, but one of the enjoyable things about it is its way of taking its time letting us get to know and savor the characters.
  3. I don't know that Where the Money Is would work at all were it not for what we, the audience, bring into the theater.

    Hazards nothing to speak of and asks chiefly to be congratulated for its modesty.
  5. A forced, implausible flick that loses its energy as it tries to gain momentum.

    If you haven't taken your mother to a movie in a while, this is the ticket, with its PG-13 rating, lack of violence and like that.

    Newman's charismatic, multishaded performance elevates the hodgepodge caper comedy a couple of notches above its preposterous plotting and self-consciously movieish texture.
