RMG 234: Easy Money (1983)

November 11, 2020

In this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is joined by Vince, and are geeking out over Easy Money (1983) and

  • Rodney Dangerfield’s comedy
  • stereotypes
  • the cast
  • something missing from the movie
  • and much, much more!


Rodney Dangerfield is on the fast track to hilarity in his howlingly funny comedy about the pit falls of having it all.

Monty Capuletti (Dangerfield) is a family man who’s short on money, but not on bad habits. He smokes too much, drinks too much, plays the horses, and plays around. His clothes make the Queen Mum look stylish, and his daughter’s engagement to a gang leader is about to be the event of the Staten Island social season.

But when his mother-in-law “dies” in a plane crash, she leaves him 10 million dollars – if he can completely reform his life for a year. The stage is set for one of the zaniest, most outrageous laugh-riots ever – proof-positive that there’s no such thing as easy money.

With an all-star cast that includes Joe Pesci, Geraldine Fitzgerald, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
