  1. 75
    A preposterous plot, but it's not about a plot, it's about acting.
  2. 75
    It's just another modest, unsurprising little heist flick. So why is it so much fun? Newman.
  3. 67
    Ultimately a fluffy bit of caper-noir, the success of Where the Money Is rests heavily with Old Blue Eyes.

    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.
  6. Reviewed by: Robert Horton

    There's very little here that rises above the level of a competent straight-to-video picture, except that whenever Paul Newman and Linda Fiorentino are onscreen together they create something special.
  7. Reviewed by: Todd McCarthy

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