The Money Pit

Tom Hanks and his woman, Shelly Long borrow the money from various sources to buy and rebuild a mansion that they want, but everything starts going wrong, as they start living there. The stairs collapses on Hanks, as well as the kitchen catches on fire after he turns on a light and the roasting turkey shoots out of the oven and into their bedroom, the closet collapses on Shelly Long, and the tub collapses through the floor just as Hanks pours water in the tub, and when the contractors show up, they end up temporarly destroying the mansion as their boss exclaim "their working animals". Eventually they start losing money in contractors, and suspicions of adultery make them doubt each others love.

Continuity mistake: When Walter is getting the water from the stove you see only one bucket. When he gets upstairs with the water he is carrying two buckets.

More quotes from The Money Pit

Question: Walter is discussing changing the name of Cheap Girls to Meryl Streep with a band member. When they say 'Meryl Streep,' their mouths are not in sync with the words. Do you know what the original name change was supposed to be, and why was it changed?

Answer: I have watched this several times. It looks to me like he is saying Meryl Streep but the audio is just out of sync with the man's lips. Plus when Hanks says it, it matches Meryl Streep on his lips.

William Bergquist

Answer: It looks like Meryl Streep the first time he says it but not the second.
