Product Description

Brad (Tim Allen) and Caroline Sexton (Kirstie Alley) were incredibly rich and incredibly miserable. Until something unbelievable happened...their accountant robbed them dry. Now they're on the run from the IRS and hiding out in the one place no one will ever look for them...Amish country. While their lawyer sorts things out in New York, they've got to do their best to blend in and are failing miserably! Hard work may prove to be more difficult than hard times as the Sextons are learning how to milk cows, plow fields and fall in love all over again.

Amazon.com

Tim Allen and Kirstie Alley are New York scammers on the lam from the IRS--they got framed by their slimy accountant, Wayne Knight of Seinfeld--so they hide out as fake Amish farmers in Intercourse, Pennsylvania. As parodies of Witness go, For Richer or Poorer can't compete with the Woody Harrelson-Bill Murray flick Kingpin, by the creators of Dumb & Dumber. Allen and Alley are directed by the creator of McHale's Navy. But wait, come back! The true test of talent is a capacity to romp right through weak material, and while this story is hopelessly lame and formulaic, Allen and Alley are credible candidates for the clown prince and princess of broad TV comedy. When somebody wonders how come alleged Amish guy Tim Allen has no beard, Kirstie says, "Lice." Of course, his face has no lice on it either, so Kirstie adds, "Minute lice!" --Tim Appelo

    This film is all that it promises. Tim Allen's ultra rich character finds himself in trouble with the IRS after his swindling accountant (Seinfeld's Wayne Knight) embezzles millions from his company. Allen and wife Kirstie Alley find themselves on the run. They end up stranded together in an Amish town. To hide, the two pretend to be Amish. This leads to many funny situations. They learn some lessons from the Amish and mend their rocky marriage. This movie was very funny and much better than I thought it would be.

    Initially, I thought the movie was good, but not spectacular. The more I see it, the more I realize how true most of its sentiments are. It shows us what is really important in life, and it is not the new Jaguar in the driveway. I like the "outtakes" and "deletions" during the credits, as well as the follow-up with them at the same pond that started their time in "hiding." My wife and I and our 5-year-old son now love this movie.

    What would it be like if you landed in an old order Amish society? In this movie two materialistic New Yorkers have to hide out in an Amish society. They learn how to work, and they also learn about the what is really important in life. It's a really funny movie.

    I think this is a very hilarious movie. Tim Allen & Kirstie Alley are perfect as the couple running away from the IRS and the movie trails the path the couple decides to take when they reside in a very traditional Amish community. They inject some life into the community; Tim helps to plow the fields with "Big-John" and Kirstie adds colour into their grey traditional clothes. It is a very humourous movie and it is touching when the couple stand together side by side when the Judge decides to pass a sentence and we know that they have truly reconciled their differences and are a couple again, no longer on the brink of divorce. Everyone should really watch this movie with their families. It is a very enjoyable movie!

    "For Richer or Poorer" is a movie that I've seen several times and one which I enjoy sharing with people who haven't seen it; sharing their reactions to Kirstie Alley's and Tim Allen's antics is a big kick for me. I paid ... more than I like to pay for a DVD--especially one with so little to offer in Special Features. (I believe there is nothing in special features because of the age of the film; DVDs were still gaining popularity when this movie was made.) I wanted my own copy of the film and prefer the DVD format to VHS. It arived separately from the rest of my Amazon order (via U.S. mail, which was just fine and very timely), and the quality of the DVD picture and sound are fine. I am pleased with the movie; I just wish it had been cheaper and that there was more to offer in terms of commentary, outtakes, behind-the-scenes footage, etc. Two DVDs come to mind immediately that are super-packed with Special Features that I just loved: "The Planet of the Apes" (Mark Wahlberg, directed by Tim Burton) and "Legally Blonde" (Reese Witherspoon). I'm pretty sure that the people who put together DVDs will recognize that the buying public prefer discs packed with extra material and will produce more complex packages than this edition of "For Richer or Poorer." That criticism aside, the movie is a must-have for a serious collector of comedy movies, and the DVD format is infinitely preferable to VHS.

    I enjoyed this movie when it came out in the theatre. It is a bit predictable, but the interaction between Tim Allen and Kirstie Alley is priceless. I get a good laugh out of this movie every time I watch it.

    Tim and Kirstie play Brad and Caroline Sexton, a very unhappy rich couple who (thanks to their embezzing accountant) find themselves on the run from the I.R.S. They end up hiding out in an Amish community under false identities until things blow over. Their transition from the pampered rich to becoming hard working members of the Amish community is hilarious.

    I definitely recommend this film to anyone who is looking for a good laugh and a "feel good" movie.

    This is one of these rare classic comedies you don't want to miss. You'll laugh your heart out. Through some odd circumstances a wealthy NYC developer (Tim Allen) gets in trouble with the IRS. Suddenly, he and his wife (Kirstie Alley) must flee from the authorities and they must leave their wealth behind. The couple ends up in Amish country and there they fake to be Amish cousins of a certain Amish family so that they can remain in hiding until their legal mess is cleared up. Everything's going crazy as the worldly couple tries to fit into this religious community. It's a fun movie and a laughfest so very rare these days. There's plenty of suspense as the IRS is closing in on their hide out, and we think "For Richer or Poorer" is one of the best comedies in years.
