* ILied: It's only after Anna's on the verge of breaking up with Walter for good that Max comes clean about what happened the night she spent at his loft. To that point, he'd been letting her think they'd slept together in a ploy to get back together with her:

* TheUnfairSex: Played with. While it is revealed Anna didn't actually cheat with Walter, she is unaware at first and convinced out of principal Walter should forgive her. As she puts herself "He can't forgive me, so ''I'' can't forgive ''him''." In the end Walter is convinced to make up with her and a happy ending ensues.
** The only reason Anna beleives Walter should forgive her for sleeping with Max is because Walter spent an entire evening from sitting down to dinner til after going to bed nagging her over whether anything happened between her and Max constantly promising that if anything did happen he would be perfectly ok with it and not blame her or hold her responsible. Anna actually believes him which is why she expects him to forgive her and sees his subsequent reaction and behaviour as him being a hypocrite which is why she cant forgive him. Still it's hard to believe Walter would be owed forgiveness on this somewhat spurious liability if the roles were reversed.

* BurgerFool: Walter catches a ride home with a pizza delivery guy dressed as a stereotypical Italian chef, driving a ludicrous Volkswagen Beetle completely covered in flashing lights and blaring a goofy song about pizza from external speakers.



* ILied: It's only after Anna's on the verge of breaking up with Walter for good that Max comes clean about what happened the night she spent at his loft. To that point, he'd been letting her think they'd slept together in a ploy to get back together with her:
--> "You slept in the bed, and I took the sofa. Sex would have been a ''miracle''."



* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Immediately following their vicious, end-of-the-relationship fight over her cheating with Max ([[spoiler:that she's unknowingly innocent of]]), Anna slams the door and bursts into horrified TearsOfRemorse.
* PetTheDog: Max convinces Walter to make up with Anna by reminding him that, being a more decent man than he, losing her would affect Walter far more than it would a guy like Max. Of course, this only comes after Max sharply [[KickTheDog Kicked The Dog]] by [[spoiler:tricking Anna into thinking she'd cheated on Walter, in hopes of splitting them up.]]

[[quoteright:340:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/The_Money_Pit_2198.jpg]]

A [[TheEighties 1986]] film comedy directed by Richard Benjamin starring Creator/TomHanks and Creator/ShelleyLong. The Money Pit features attorney Walter Fielding (Hanks) and his violinist girlfriend Anna (Long), who are swindled into buying a house that's falling apart at the seams. As they keep getting further in debt in their efforts to restore the house, the pressure starts taking a toll on the couple. Part of [[TheEighties Hanks's early period of comedies]] made [[TomHanksSyndrome before]] ''Film/{{Philadelphia}}'', the film is also one of the reasons Shelley Long quit the cast of ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' hoping to make a transition to movies.

* KarmaHoudini: Narrowly averted for [[spoiler: Walter's father]]. The last scene in the film is him and [[spoiler: his new wife buying a gorgeous mansion in South America -- from the same two con artists who]] sold Walter and Anna their lemon.
