The Money Pit [DVD] [1986]

Release Date:02/04/2003
Adapting the themes of the 1948 film Mr. Blandings Builds his Dream House, this comedy stars Tom Hanks as Walter Fielding, who with his love Anna (Shelley Long) decides to buy a suburban New York home for next-to-nothing. Both Anna and Walter are willing to fix what ails the house and since they are both successful professionals, that should not be too difficult. Unfortunately, what ails the house might be terminal as the rest of the film chronicles the battle between the couple and the disintegrating structure. Construction workers come in to make matters either worse or better -- or both.

    The Money Pit
    Steven Spielberg produced this slapstick comedy of destruction directed by Richard Benjamin. Tom Hanks and Shelley Long star as Walter Fielding and Anna Crowley, an upper middle class New York City couple living in the cramped Manhattan apartment of Anna's ex-husband, Max Beissart (Alexander Godunov). When Max evicts them, the couple purchases a Long Island dream home. But the house proves to be more of a nightmare than a dream, with faucets spewing muck, collapsing staircases, exploding light switches, and crooked repairmen and contractors. As the new home collapses around Walter and Anna, so does their relationship. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
