Critic Reviews for Double Dynamite (It's Only Money)

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Double Dynamite is a foolish concoction, but a fairly diverting one.

July 30, 2019 | Full Review…

This is not-bad comedy about a mix up with money at the bank Frank and Jane work at that Groucho makes better, and Frank is in full 1940s bobbysoxer crooner mode, but handles the comedy pretty well.

April 17, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Only bearable because of a few trademark Groucho Marx quips.

Audience Reviews for Double Dynamite (It's Only Money)

A hilarious movie with great actors. I wish Groucho had done more movies like this one. Anyway, check it out, it's a good movie.

Lame comedy made when Sinatra was at a low point. Jane, saddled with an unattractive hairdo and apparently directed to act like a fool and speak in a voice a few octaves higher then her own was just starting out and hadn't blossomed into the great broad she became a few years down the road.
