Academy Award(R)-winner Paul Newman and Academy Award(R)-nominee Tom Cruise ignite the screen in this powerful drama. Brilliantly directed by Martin Scorsese, Newman re-creates one of his most memorable roles from THE HUSTLER. As Fast Eddie Felson, he still believes that "money won is twice as sweet as money earned." To prove his point, he forms a profitable yet volatile partnership with Vince (Cruise), a young pool hustler with a sexy, tough-talking girlfriend (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio). But when Vince's flashy arrogance leads to more than a few lost matches, all bets are off between Eddie and him. THE COLOR OF MONEY will electrify you with its suspenseful story, dazzling cinematography, and dynamic performances.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: That it's inferior to the original goes without saying, but Paul Newman and Tom Cruise are a joy to watch, and Martin Scorsese's direction is typically superb.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Eddie and Vincent make a living off of lying and manipulating for money, and Carmen manipulates by using her body. Eddie also threatens to beat up Carmen. Money is more important than everything else, despite the fact that Eddie seems to be mentoring Vincent. There is some strong language, smoking, and drinking.
