How to Beat the High Co$t of Living Reviews:

This film is swimming in 1970's economy humor, there's never enough cash for everything. Bills can't receive paid, and a radio announcer tells with relief in his voice that the cost of living went up ONLY 2%.The humor may date it for some and create it fly over people's heads that were too young to remember the economic malaise of the late 70's (I barely remember it, my being a child back then).But if you receive past that, what you have here is a smart and entertaining caper movie where the folks pulling the caper are all female. June Curtain, Jessica Lange and Susan Saint James create up the squad that conspires to create a heist.Dabney Coleman proves he can now enjoy a sweet guy with his turn as a Police boy which falls for Jane Curtain's character. Richard Benjimin has some nice one-liners testing Jessica Lange's animal doctor husband. Garrett Morris has a nice cameo.I saw this at the films when it first came out and found it to be very funny and enjoyable. Years soon I sought it out and found that it has been out of print on video for a number of years. Finally, I found a copy to rent. You could test to search a copy too. It's a fun movie


This 1980 comedy is slight but entertaining, with a terrific cast headed up by former "Saturday Night Live" star Jane Curtin. Fittingly, Curtin would soon become half of the 1980s classic sitcom duo "Kate and Allie", sharing TV laughs with co-star Susan Saint James. Here, the two girls share the bill with a pre-"Tootsie" Jessica Lange, who was then underrated as an actress and better known for bombing in Dino De Laurentis' ver of "King Kong".Curtin plays Elaine, a sophisticated missus whose husband has run out, leaving her with a tasteful hillside home, and a pile of bills she can barely pay off. Meanwhile, divorcée Jane (Saint James) struggles to raise two kids, and can't afford to marry her fiancé, hardware shop owner Robert (Fred Willard) – forcing them to spend intimate moments in the back of a car. Louise (Lange) is also battling differences with husband Albert (Richard Benjamin), a dentist who underestimates his wife's desire to have an income of her own – and who leads the IRS to classify his wife's antique shop as a "hobby".Of course, the ladies decide the easiest problem-solver is to steal a ball full of floating dollars at the local shopping mall.It's a slight premise, but the performances are enjoyable, not only from the leads, but also from helping characters. While our sympathy is with the screwball ladies, it's also fun watching Benjamin squirm as a selfish oaf, in a stage with dental hygienist (and future B-queen) Sybil Danning. Also entertaining are Dabney Coleman as a cop romancing Elaine, and Eddie Albert as Max, a now-daffy ex-Marine and father to Jane. One of the greatest scenes involves Curtin and former SNL costar Garrett Morris, testing a utility representative.The cute Oregon city of Eugene, home to the University of Oregon, also lends its hero to the scenes, with on-location shoots adding to its realism. Not only that – counter-cultural Eugene *is* the sort of city where well-meaning citizens would place on a enjoy at the local shopping mall. It's a fun trip back in time for anyone who even slightly remembers the inflationary 1970s and early 1980s.


Three middle-class women, all of whom are struggling financially for different reasons, decide to solve their issues by knocking over a fund-raising happening at the local shopping mall. They "psych themselves up" by committing some tiny stickups and so forth at first, then they place the large plan in zone -- and, of course, when the large day arrives, everything goes awry. Moderately entertaining, though not particularly noteworthy apart from some interesting casting notes, such as Dabney Coleman as an unassuming great guy (something you don't see very often), Jessica Lange in a comedic role (ditto) and Jane Curtin in her first detail film, working alongside Susan Saint James, a partnership that would soon be reprised in the successful sitcom "Kate & Allie".This is the type of movie that, if you're of a particular age, you probably saw in grade school or junior high on cable TV when you were a kid, and actually that it's popping up again on broadcast TV on a Sunday afternoon when you don't really have much else to do, you think to yourself, "Oh, hey, yeah, I remember that film -- seeing that again might be type of fun." And it is.It's also quite watchable if you've never seen it before. Just don't expect to come away feeling as though your life has been changed, as it usually is with truly nice comedies from that era (such as 1981's "Arthur").
