Critic Reviews for Other People's Money

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5)

Danny DeVito is the right actor to play Larry the Liquidator. He doesn't have to say that he uses big piles of money to compensate for the lack of love in his life. We know. We can see it in Larry's eyes.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

...an ill-advised adaptation that just doesn't have enough material or substance to sustain a feature-length running time.

August 4, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Not bad, but the point is muddled in a movie that doesn't know what it wants to be.

September 9, 2004 | Rating: 3/5

Boring stock market comedy. No laughs.

July 14, 2003 | Rating: 0/5

Surprisingly, the trademark roguish antics of diminutive devil DeVito is kept at a subdued level thanks to the lifeless corporate spunk in Jewison's mediocre material. It's not really all that fun spending a dime on Other People's Money
