THE MONEY PIT (Theatrical Release USA 1986)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Stars ììì

The Money Pit
—comedy—stars Tom Hanks and Shelley Long. It’s a light comedy and has ‘B’ grade entertainment appeal. Particularly enjoyable scenes involve construction workers and their interaction with the owners of the home. There are some sexual references.

Maybe. It’s funny and, if you’re a Tom Hanks fan, it will suit nicely.
