The best Rodney Dangerfield movie. Really.
Not a single classless cliché has been omitted from this all-time comedy classic. From the lime-green and lavender wedding gowns and the magic fingers bed assist, to the all timer, the "Regular Guy Look", Easy Money just keeps coming at you with one hilarious situation, another memorable line after another.

Joe Pesci brings just as much to the table as Rodney here alternately feeding, then stealing the yucks. And Jeffrey Jones plays the perfect foil-the genesis of his famous Dean Rooney in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Add Taylor Negron and Tom Noonan, not to mention Jennifer Jason Leigh and you have some serious talent working hard for the money.

And they're so good, they make it look easy.

Goofs

In the beginning of the film when Monty is in the wedding dress he's smoking a cigarette. The cigarette alternates from being in his hand & mouth. When he reaches up to remove the veil the cigarette is in his hand. Yet in the next cut the cigarette is in his mouth.


Alternate Versions

There are two versions of this movie known to exist. One is the original theatrical cut, which has made its way to video and DVD. The other, which has been seen on premium cable stations (HBO, Showtime), has an additional scene at a boxing fight with Monty, Nicky, and Paddy. After Monty tells the parents to "shut the fat little bastard up." We see an aerial view of a boxing ring with the sound of the national anthem. After the announcer sings the national anthem at the match, we see Monty passing peanuts, beer, and hot dogs around while looking at them in vain. As he watches the fight, he sees one of the fighters get knocked out and he sees himself as that fighter two times. Yelling "I got to get out of here!", Monty begins to leave, but things stop him. A vendor holding out a hot dog saying "Have a hot dog, son." He turns from them and sees his Mob pals beckoning him with girls and money. He then sees his next door neighbor offering him a joint with his girlfriend who pulls up her top. Finally, he sees Scrapleton with Mrs. Monahan dressed in a devil suit. He holds the deed for Monty's money. All of these people he sees are of his own imagination. As Nicky yells out "Where you going!", Monty exits the arena. We then see him sitting in front of the television. All TV versions of "Easy Money" also exclude this scene.
