There are two versions of this movie known to exist. One is the original theatrical cut, which has made its way to video and DVD. The other, which has been seen on premium cable stations (HBO, Showtime), has an additional scene at a boxing fight with Monty, Nicky, and Paddy. After Monty tells the parents to "shut the fat little bastard up." We see an aerial view of a boxing ring with the sound of the national anthem. After the announcer sings the national anthem at the match, we see Monty passing peanuts, beer, and hot dogs around while looking at them in vain. As he watches the fight, he sees one of the fighters get knocked out and he sees himself as that fighter two times. Yelling "I got to get out of here!", Monty begins to leave, but things stop him. A vendor holding out a hot dog saying "Have a hot dog, son." He turns from them and sees his Mob pals beckoning him with girls and money. He then sees his next door neighbor offering him a joint with his girlfriend who pulls up her top. Finally, he sees Scrapleton with Mrs. Monahan dressed in a devil suit. He holds the deed for Monty's money. All of these people he sees are of his own imagination. As Nicky yells out "Where you going!", Monty exits the arena. We then see him sitting in front of the television. All TV versions of "Easy Money" also exclude this scene. See more »
It's not everyday where you get to watch a good comedy starring Joe Pesci. No one cares now, but when Rodney decides to join the big comedy club up in the sky above, Easy Money will be broadcast on every comedy network from Maine to San Diego. Second to only Caddy Shack, Easy Money is Rodney's best and most loved film roles as the guy who never gets any respect. A wonderful story with a wonderful arrangement of characters including Rodney and Pesci. Overall, Rodney makes the film come together with his comic genius.
