Movie Info

The Swede (Marlon Brando), a prison warden, rules his family and his prison with an iron hand in one of the coldest parts of North Dakota. When an inmate dies under mysterious circumstances, however, the FBI sends in agent Karen Polarski (Mira Sorvino) to investigate. On the home front, the sons-in-law of the Swede, Larry (Thomas Haden Church) and Bud (Charlie Sheen) accidentally discover that a train loaded with millions of dollars of unmarked currency slated to be destroyed will soon be passing through. The temptation is too great and the guys hatch a scheme to rob the train. Of course, the biggest obstacle in their way is the Swede.

Critic Reviews for Free Money

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

Yves Simoneau and scriptwriters Joseph Brutsman and Tony Peck are aiming for a Fargo sort of farce. What they achieve is more like Wayne's World meets Winesburg, Ohio at the corner of Twin Peaks and Peyton Place. But Marlon and Mira make it hum.

It's not that bad that it's not worth checking out to see a grotesquely bloated Marlon Brando.

Strained one-liners and random eccentricities.

Too many cooks in the kitchen?

Audience Reviews for Free Money

Despite being funny, Free Money it's a nothing recommendable movie with a poor screenplay and a weak performance by Brando.
