Pocket Money is a very good and subtle comedy about an ordinary person Newman trying hard not to be conned by shady businessmen played by Strother Martin and Wayne Rogers . Those viewers who are looking for exciting thrills and heroic deeds from the lead characters in such films are missing the point - which seems to be the case with most of the earlier reviews of this film on IMDb.The storyline makes it clear from the start that Newman's character is a hard working modern cowboy trying to make ends meet despite not being blessed with the most sharpest of brains. As a study of such an <more>
everyman character, Newman's performance is in my view superb. Marvin's performance on the other hand is a little subdued and below par, but still there is a good chemistry between him and Newman in some scenes. The only disappointing aspect of this film is the ending, which seems to leave the story unnecessarily incomplete. However, overall, I would rate this a very good production of an off-beat story.
this movie is about life. it's a brief glimpse into the lives of newman's and marvin's characters, with a surrounding cast of rich, entertaining characters thrown in for fun. if you're looking for a particular type of movie with a particular type of ending then this movie is not for you. if you're aware of the twists and turns of fate in your life and have come to be aware that there's not a clear explanation for everything that happens, and that you live a moment and then it's gone forever, then you'll appreciate this look into the lives of these two <more>
characters. a brief glimpse into a reality in which not every experience falls into a strict logical sequence and some things just happen. you don't live your life as a sequence of discrete beginnings and endings and this movie has done a great job depicting that.
This is an excellent movie. Everything is about character development here. Newman's character has a different name but its basically Hud a few years down the road and a lot worse for wear. Newman and Marvin are great as always. If you are looking for lots of action, car chases, or romance look elsewhere my friends. This is a character study and a very good one. Newman is a down but not quite out cowboy and Marvin is his hustler buddy. They try to pick up some quick cash by working a shady cattle deal. Strother Martin and Wayne Rogers are very good as a couple of fly by night businessmen <more>
that Newman has the bad luck to associate with. The scene where Newman shakes down Martins character is hilarious. Another great scene is when they tell some Mexican cowboys that they came to Mexico to buy some chili peppers. This is a true to life modern western with no six guns but its fully loaded with charm and real world insight. Great movie!!!! Good acting and writing throughout.
