Free Money is a 1998 comedy film starring Marlon Brando, Donald Sutherland, and Charlie Sheen. The movie is directed by Yves Simoneau and written by Anthony Peckham and Stephen Sheldon. The plot revolves around the Monahan family, who live in a small town in Canada. The family has a long history of criminal activity, and the patriarch, Newt Monahan (Marlon Brando), is currently serving a jail sentence for bank robbery. However, Newt has a plan to escape from prison and go back to his old ways.

Meanwhile, his sons, Bud (Charlie Sheen) and Larry (Thomas Haden Church), are struggling to make ends meet. Bud is a con man who is always scheming to make a quick buck, while Larry is a more subdued character who is trying to stay on the straight and narrow. They both work at the local brewery, which is owned by their uncle, Darryl (Donald Sutherland). Darryl is a wealthy businessman who is respected in the community, but he is also a bit eccentric and has a dark past of his own.

One day, Newt escapes from prison and comes to live with his sons. He convinces Bud and Larry to help him rob a casino owned by Darryl. They agree to the plan, but things quickly go awry when Darryl finds out about their scheme. He decides to take matters into his own hands and hires a hitman to take care of the Monahans.

What follows is a series of comedic mishaps and misunderstandings as the Monahans try to outsmart Darryl and his hired killer. Along the way, they are joined by other colorful characters, including a bumbling cop, a tough female truck driver, and a love interest for Bud.

The movie is filled with over-the-top humor and slapstick comedy, as well as some more subtle jokes and commentary on the themes of greed and family loyalty. The performances by the lead actors are all top-notch, with Marlon Brando stealing the show as the comically sinister Newt.

In addition to the humorous moments, the film also has some dramatic scenes that explore the complex relationships between the Monahan family members. For example, there is a touching moment when Newt tries to connect with his estranged son Larry and apologize for his past mistakes.

Overall, Free Money is a fun and entertaining movie that will appeal to fans of both crime capers and screwball comedies. It may not be a cinematic masterpiece, but it is definitely worth watching for the talented cast and the sheer entertainment value.

Free Money is a 1998 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.0.
