The Money Pit Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Adapting the themes of the 1948 film [[Feature~V33617~Mr. Blandings Builds his Dream House~mrblandingsbuildshisdreamhouse]], this comedy stars [[Performer~P93341~Tom Hanks~tomhanks]] as Walter Fielding, who with his love Anna ([[Performer~P43119~Shelley Long~shelleylong]]) decides to buy a suburban New York home for next-to-nothing. Both Anna and Walter are willing to fix what ails the house and since they are both successful professionals, that should not be too difficult. Unfortunately, what ails the house might be terminal as the rest of the film chronicles the battle between the couple and the disintegrating structure. Construction workers come in to make matters either worse or better -- or both. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
