Critic Reviews for For Richer or Poorer

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (8)

Neither [Tim Allen and Kirstie Alley] nor the competent cast can overcome the formulaic script by Jana Howington and Steve Lukanic or the humdrum direction by Bryant Spicer.

Kirstie Alley and Tim Allen are shallow New York socialites on the verge of divorce who become tax-fraud fugitives and pretend to be simple Amish folk. Eva Gabor and Eddie Albert they're not.

The plot is a yawner, another one of those "fish out of water'' formula jobs, complete with car chases and jokes about cow manure. But [Kirstie Alley and Tim Allen] succeed somehow in bringing a certain charm to their scenes.

Despite its Amish setting, this laborious comedy proves to be witless rather than Witness.

September 10, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

I wish Tim Allen would go back to cocaine and stop making movies. In fact, the good of the world demands it.

Not a terrible romantic comedy. The Amish stuff has been done before, there are some moments in here.

Audience Reviews for For Richer or Poorer

TV actors Tim Allen and Kirstie Allie star in a romantic comedy, and it's actually really funny. Of course it isn't the best comedy of the year, but surprisingly good, and enjoyable to watch.

Good hilarious comedy of a wacky businessman and his spoiled wife (Tim Allen and Kirstie Alley) go on the lam after a ballistic IRS agent decides to take them down. Things pick up when the couple hides out in an Amish colony - a part like Witness.
