At first glance, FOR LOVE OR MONEY looks like a holdover from the greed-filled 1980s, a last gasp glorification of Reagan/Bush era yuppiedom. The surprise is that it's actually an amusing, if occasionally formulaic, comedy.
Michael J. Fox is Doug Ireland, a cunning-yet-lovable concierge at New York's posh Bradbury Hotel. Doug knows all the angles, from where to get jewelry wholesale to how to procure hard-to-get theater tickets, but he doesn't quite have the knack for romance. Andy (Gabrielle Anwar), the department
store salesgirl on whom he has a crush, humors him but won't agree to a date. David has two dreams: to win Andy, and have his own hotel.
