‘For Love or Money’ Is a Fun Movie

January 20, 2021 1 Comment

Months ago now I randomly came across this rom-com with Michael J. Fox, and without any different (or better?) options I decided to hit play. All in the hopes I’d find a decent and entertaining comedy to enjoy.

For Love or Money (1992) Film Review

In the game that is Manhattan concierge, there is none better than Doug Ireland (Fox). He knows how to get his high-paying clients what they want, and all of his earnings go towards his dream of someday owning his own hotel. Coinciding with the possibility of working with a big investor is the arrival of Andy Hart (Gabrielle Anwar). Quite smitten with her, Doug cannot seem to get her out of his mind until he learns she’s the mistress of his investor, Christian.

Needless to say this not only complicates Doug’s business affairs, but also the affairs of his heart – and a choice of which is more important.

As I watched this quite some time ago, I cannot remember all of the particulars, but do know this, I thought For Love or Money was all kinds of cute. There’s a great sense of comedy and more importantly how best to use the humor to its best advantage. This is an underrated aspect, I think, in films that don’t always understand comedy, but while this one isn’t perfect (there’s still some sense of crudeness), I think overall it does things pretty well.

Part of this credit goes entirely to the cast. Everyone is good, and it’s so strange to see these actors in such young roles! I haven’t seen Michael J. Fox in much, but what I have, it hasn’t been this sort of role. Then there’s Gabrielle Anwar who played in the USA Network show Burn Notice in the mid-2000s. It’s such fun to see her in this, especially since I loved her so much in that show. The pair of them are cute together and I find myself remembering how sweet some of their scenes together were as I write this.

If you like 90s comedy or just an easy going and entertaining movie, For Love or Money is a good time.

Content: There is some innuendo and sexual content [Christian is married and Andy willingly has an affair with him believing he may leave his wife; another man also rents out a room for the purpose of an afternoon rendezvous]. There may also be some profanity, nothing terrible though. The film is PG.
