Hard Cash Movie Review
Well, it's not as bad as you might think. We even get Verne "Mini-Me" Troyer crawling out of a toilet, so who can complain?
As expected, the movie features a variety of cons and counter-cons, as Slater's hustler tries to get a little bankroll for his child and girlfriend, all while trying to evade the greed of his henchmen as well as that of a corrupt FBI agent (Kilmer). In the film, a counterfeit heist is outdone by a racetrack job which is outdone by an armored car robbery. It's a bit much, and it lacks the how's-it-gonna-end mystery of a Mamet flick. (It also lacks the punchy dialogue, mind-bending twists, and great acting of a Mamet flick, but that's beside the point.)
But the stars of Hard Cash (perhaps the worst title for a movie of all time) all know how to act at least, and no one here is bad. This is hardly art or even anything close to it -- but you know, it beats sitcom reruns and probably half the junk they're pushing at Blockbuster.
Aka Run for the Money.
