A canny African-American idler from South Central Los Angeles attempts to infiltrate an all-white university fraternity in the dippy comedy Where's the Money. What on earth is he up to? Turns out his ruse is a bid to retrieve a stash of stolen money hidden in the frat house long before by his bank-robbing father and uncle. Naturally, the scam doesn't go according to plan.
Internet star Andrew Bachelor, aka Vine personality King Bach, throws himself into the culture-clash comedy that ensues. But the results are distinctly humdrum. Indeed, it's the hopelessly apologetic frat boys - led by Josh Brener's polite preppie - who actually prove much funnier than the film's nominal star as they tie themselves in excruciating knots of white guilt.

A film critic for over 25 years, Jason admits the job can occasionally be glamorous – sitting on a film festival jury in Portugal; hanging out with Baz Luhrmann at the Chateau Marmont; chatting with Sigourney Weaver about The Archers – but he mostly spends his time in darkened rooms watching films. He’s also written theatre and opera reviews, two guide books on Rome, and competed in a race for Yachting World, whose great wheeze it was to send a seasick film critic to write about his time on the ocean waves. But Jason is happiest on dry land with a classic screwball comedy or Hitchcock thriller.
