Product description

Product Description

Richard Pryor stars in the title role of this adaptation of George Barr McCutcheon's novel. Minor league baseball player Montgomery Brewster stands to inherit $300 million from his recently deceased great-uncle, but only if he can first spend $30 million in 30 days without letting anyone in on the reason. If he fails, the fortune will instead be divided amongst charities with his law firm taking a large cut for their services. As he gets to grips with the value of money, Brewster's task proves much harder than he'd imagined, even with the assistance of his teammate Spike Nolan (John Candy).

From Amazon.co.uk

He's had some good performances in supporting parts, but Richard Pryor's major film roles, including Brewster's Millions, never managed to captured his comic brilliance the way his concert films did--proving that magic isn't something you can bottle. This 1985 film is no exception, even though it was directed by Walter Hill three years after he turned Eddie Murphy into a film star with 48 Hours. The seventh film reworking of a warhorse stage play, this film stars Pryor and John Candy as a pair of minor-league baseball players whose best days are behind them. Then Pryor is informed that he's just inherited a fortune--300 million dollars. But it comes with a condition: he must spend 30 million dollars in one month, with a number of rules about how much he can spend at one time and how many of any one thing he can buy. Both Pryor and Candy were at the top of their comedy games at this point, but were utterly failed both by ham-handed direction and a script that left them higher and drier than seems humanly possible, given the comic talents involved. --Marshall Fine, Amazon.com --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

Richard pryor film so funny lives the life style of a millionaire but the money isn't his hes got to spend it but not just give it to charity or gamble and make any profit. Just showing the public where he goes to eat or getting suits made gets the best because hes a man of means but they can't change a one million pound note so credit everywhere. At the end everything is taken back but hes got a new life job and women out of it.

Loved this movie when I was younger, not so funny now but maybe it was the swearing that cracked me up when I was little. Still a good movie. Prompt delivery too.

One of my all-time favourite classic comedy's, but the Blu-ray is barebones release with a grainy/grubby picture and stereo sound.

Only worth an upgrade from DVD if you are a diehard fan of the film.
