    Synopsis


    Money Talks
    A low-level criminal and a struggling newsman become unlikely partners in this comedy. Franklin Hatchett (Chris Tucker) is a fast-talking hustler who runs a small time ticket-scalping business. A TV news story by reporter James Russell (Charlie Sheen) brings Franklin's business to the attention of the police, and he finds himself under arrest. While being transported by police bus from one lock-up to another, Franklin is handcuffed to Raymond Villard (Gerard Ismael), a high-level jewel thief from Europe. Villard's henchmen stage a raid in which they explode the vehicle, killing most of the passengers (including two cops), but freeing their partner. Franklin is able to escape but learns that he's now wanted as a cop killer. Hoping to clear his name, Franklin approaches Russell with a deal -- if he'll hide him from the police and help him prove that he had nothing to do with the deadly explosion, he'll give the reporter an exclusive story, which could help Russell boost his sagging career. Money Talks also features Heather Locklear as Russell's fiancée Grace, and Paul Sorvino as Grace's father, who is quite impressed by Franklin's story that he's related to Vic Damone. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      I saw this movie in the theater some years ago when it was first released. It was extremely funny then and it still makes me laugh a lot! I was watching an old episode of "Two and a Half Men" starring Charlie Sheen when I remembered the first time I saw him in a movie when he made me laugh. This was it!

      This is not a film, it's a movie. With Chris Tucker and Charlie Sheen headlining, I'm not sure that's news to anyone. The two of them do play really well off of one another, and this movie ranks among my favorite "throw-it-on" movies to watch while I'm doing other things. In my opinion, this is one of Chris Tucker's best.

      A very funny comedy with Chris Tucker exploding on the silver screen with his urban comedy that crossed over to White America.
