Oscar® winner Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips) stars with Shelley Long (TV’s Modern Family) in this hilarious comedy from executive producer Steven Spielberg. Walter (Hanks) and Anna (Long) believe they’ve arrived “home sweet home” when they buy the house of their dreams. But life quickly becomes a nightmare as their dilapidated mansion falls apart around them, and they struggle to stay together even as they slide further into The Money Pit. It’s outrageous entertainment for anyone who’s ever been deeply in love… or deeply in debt… or both!

...enhanced by Hanks' increasingly hysterical and appropriately broad performance.

Classic '80s fix-it comedy has some mature themes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Money Pit, although PG, has several mature themes and conversations. The couple played by Tom Hanks and Shelley Long fool around in bed -- with their construction crew looking on in one case. They kiss many times throughout the movie and have conversations about sex, drinking, and ending their relationship. In one scene -- played for laughs -- Long's character is groped without her consent. The humor consists of Hanks (and in a few cases Long) getting hurt in a variety of elaborate ways during their hellish home renovation.
