Where the Money Is | 2000 | PG-13 | - 4.3.4

An excitement-starved nurse (Linda Fiorentino) discovers one of her patients is a notorious bank robber (Paul Newman) pretending to be a stroke victim and offers to keep his secret if he helps her and her husband (Dermot Mulroney) pull off a heist. Also with Susan Barnes and Frankie Faison. [1:28]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Some sexual innuendo and kissing. A husband unzips his wife's shirt (we see her undershirt) and they kiss passionately; she turns around and leans on a table, then at a distance we partially see his back as he thrusts (we hear her moan briefly). A woman props her leg on a wheelchair near an unconscious man's face, sits on his lap and swivels her hips, puts his head between her clothed cleavage and his hands on her clothed buttocks (we see this in close-up), and licks her finger and runs it across his lips. A woman sits in a man's lap and kisses him while he's driving; he also puts his hand on her clothed breast and she puts his hand on the front of her skirt. We see a nude man holding a towel in front of his groin area, most of a woman's bare legs when she bends over in a short skirt, a man's bare shoulders as he's bathing in a tub, two men in boxers and undershirts and a few women in cleavage-revealing tops.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Some scenes of reckless driving in which cars nearly collide; in one scene a car drives off a small drop-off (we see the unharmed passengers' legs sticking up from the front seat) and in another scene a car drives off a cliff and into water below (we see the car sink). A woman pushes an unconscious man in a wheelchair into a lake; also, a man falls out of his wheelchair and hits the ground face-first. A man cuts the brake lines on a motorcycle; in a later scene the driver apparently runs into a parked car (we hear a crash, then see him lying on the ground) and gets some bloody facial cuts and a bloody nose. Two men extinguish cigarettes in their palms (one of the men appears to be in pain) and two men are bound with duct tape. A man beats the top of a car and yells at a man inside. A couple instances of threatening with guns. A choking woman is given the Heimlich maneuver and spits out a piece of food. We hear a woman vomit.

LANGUAGE 4 - A few anatomical references, a scatological reference, lots of mild obscenities and some insults.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Robbery, nursing homes, boredom, stroke victims, jealousy, taking risks, loyalty.

MESSAGE - Taking risks (especially illegal risks) can bring happiness and excitement back to your life. Thieves can be more loyal and trustworthy than law-abiding citizens.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
