Money From Home is a 1953 comedy film starring Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, which follows the story of a pair of naive men from New York City who attempt to win a horse race and make some quick cash. The film also features Marjie Millar in a supporting role. The movie begins with Martin playing a gambler named Honey Talk Nelson, who has just lost all of his money on a horse race. He convinces his friend, a veterinarian named Virgil Yokum (played by Jerry Lewis), to help him win the next race by fixing the horse owned by the love interest of the man who won the previous race. The duo then travel to the race track in Maryland, where they face a number of obstacles that threaten to derail their plans. Yokum, who is unfamiliar with horse racing, mistakenly administers a performance-enhancing drug to the wrong horse, causing it to become horribly ill. Meanwhile, Nelson runs into trouble with the woman he needs to seduce in order to make their plan work. Despite these setbacks, the two men manage to get their horse entered into the race, but they still have to deal with a number of competitors who are betting on their own horses to win. They devise a number of comical schemes to tilt the odds in their favor, including putting on fake mustaches and disguising themselves as jockeys to sabotage the other horses. As the race approaches, tensions rise and the duo becomes increasingly desperate to ensure their horse wins. With the help of several lucky breaks, including a freak thunderstorm that clears the track for their horse, they finally manage to cross the finish line first. They collect their winnings and return home to New York City, where they use the money to set themselves up in business. Money From Home is a classic, lighthearted comedy that showcases the talents of both Martin and Lewis. Although the plot is somewhat predictable, the movie's humor and slapstick gags keep the audience engaged throughout. The chemistry between the two leads is also on full display, with Martin playing the smooth-talking gambler and Lewis providing the bumbling comedic relief. At its heart, Money From Home is a classic tale of two guys trying to make a quick buck. Although the subject matter may seem somewhat dated today, the film's humor and sense of fun remain timeless. It's a movie that's perfect for a lazy afternoon or a rainy day, and it's sure to put a smile on the face of anyone who watches it.
