Where The Money Is: Friday April 14, 2000

Henry Manning has come up with a new way to break out of prison: fake a stroke and get transferred to a nursing home. It's a perfect plan, except for one thing: the woman assigned to take care of him at the nursing home, Carol Ann McKay, has a plan of her own.
Screen legend Paul Newman stars as Henry, and Linda Fiorentino stars as Carol, in Where the Money Is, a spirited new caper movie. Dermot Mulroney plays Carol's husband Wayne.
When the prison guards deliver Henry to the nursing home, Carol is immediately intrigued. After all, he was a famous bank robber; his life had all the mystery and fun that hers lacks. She hungers for excitement: she is bored with her job, her glory days as prom queen are long past, and Wayne (her onetime prom king) just marks time on his night-shift job.
While Henry seems feeble and helpless, Carol suspects otherwise. Still, she can't quite prove that he's playing possum. She gets more and more frustrated until finally she goes to some very outrageous lengths to smoke him out. It's not that she wants to turn him in. Instead, she asks him if he might do her a favor in return for her silence: teach her his old line of work, and then join her and her husband Wayne in a robbery of their own. But Henry has long since learned not to let his guard down, even for a minute. Especially when it comes to finding where the money is…
