Movie Info

An excellent vehicle to showcase the talents of Tim Curry, this comedy by Colin Bucksey casts Curry as Larry Gormley, an actor who has never really had the break he so desperately wants -- though whether or not his talent is up to the task is another question. Larry drives a cab in-between auditions, which essentially makes him a cab driver with acting aspirations. When one shot at stardom falls through because his producer promptly drops dead, Larry has a bit of apparent good fortune drop into his lap. A fare of dubious business affiliation accidentally leaves a stash of cash in his suitcase in the back of Larry's hack. Recognizing the brass ring when he sees it, Larry grabs the ill-gotten dough and takes off, quickly and disastrously followed by the Mob and the IRA. Chased to Dublin, Larry passes himself off as a nun or worse, all in order to evade his murderous pursuers. Fast-paced and funny, viewers should also enjoy Curry's interpretations of Mick Jagger and Elvis. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Blue Money

Audience Reviews for Blue Money

This one is about two men who produce porno films and are under investigation and before the movies end get busted/ It takes place during the Nixon Era, and its need to see the women walking around in the Hippy dresses. A few Sex scenes put nothing to XXX. This one was made for the NYC 42nd Street era when the x rated theaters were all that was in the area. The featured women are beautiful there is a scattering of skags though. 2 stars

A funny music comedy with Tim Curry, I liked it, and I'm glad I found the video. If you're a fan of his, you'll want to see this too.
