Leslie Felperin Guardian Diverting enough to pass muster, thanks to a seasoned cast. Rated: 3/5 Jun 2, 2016 Full Review Lauren Burgess HeyUGuys If there's a real message about rejecting consumerism and criticising the elitist world of private banks, Breaking The Bank puts it across weakly. Rated: 2/5 Jun 13, 2017 Full Review James Mottram Total Film It's a flat farce, offering cheap gags about erectile dysfunction and trouser-swapping. The Big Short proved humour could make economics accessible, but this is tasteless. Rated: 1/5 Jan 2, 2017 Full Review Brian Viner Daily Mail (UK) Occasionally, Grammer's cut-glass vowels betray his American roots, but on the whole he is excellent value for money, and of course money is what this amiably silly comedy is all about.

FRANK P "As of 2019, Kelsey Grammer's net worth is estimated to be $60 million dollars." It's staggering, KG was a central part of Cheers, a series with frequent bouts of actual comedy and many fine actors/comedians. Then he was the star of "Frasier," an even better series. He's a very talented actor and even with (I presume) ridiculous amounts of alimony to pay, he still will take in at least $13 million a year in residuals for those shows; and yet he feels compelled to be the central gem in this vomitous production? If the love of money is the root of all evil, then KG is head over heels with the stuff. Every moment of this colossal, predictable, hackneyed, phoney, sentimental, third rate bore of a film is sheer torture. Kelsey's skills cannot save this, because you can't perfume a corpse. The other actors do their best with this moribund pile of crud, but we can forgive the many skilled participants who wasted thousands of hours on this production because, well, movie people need to eat. But KG has more money than god and has no need to ever lower himself into a cesspool like this. His name in a production will never be a guarantee of at least some theatrical joy . Shame on you, Kelsey. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/14/20 Full Review farah r It started out on a rather good note but just failed to keep me interested. An hour is all I could take of this crap. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Although my wife in this film, it is a bummer. Childish, predictable plot - it is not funny. Apparently The main star is a good chap.
