Not as good as I remember

An enjoyable enough film, which Richard Prior does as well as anybody could with. But it is nowhere near as good as it felt as a child or that it could have been.

The plot and the rules of the challenge are an absolute mess and endless list of inconsistencies. He was told that he was not allowed to buy somebody a diamond ring say, or have assets but then spent most of the film buying gifts and items which could be constituted as an asset.

The more that the film went on, the more daft that the premise became. When he was dishing out salaries he could have made each one bigger to spend more money.

It's OK but not laugh out loud comedy.

It's a good while away the time movie, when there's nothing better to watch. There's no great comedic points, just a humorous feel good ending film. Neither must see or avoid.

$30 Million in 30 Days

Brewster's Millions was a movie that--even if the execution wasn't the best--had a novel concept.

Monty Brewster (Richard Pryor) was the sole heir to a fortune--but there was a catch. If he could spend $30 million in 30 days 1.) having no assets 2.) not give it away philanthropically or otherwise 3.) and have receipts for all money spent (and no he can't buy the Hope Diamond and give it away) all without telling anyone. Should he accomplish that then he would inherit $300 million. OR he could take the "wimp out clause" and just walk away with $1 million. Sounds easy right? Wrong!

The movie was a wacky series of events perpetrated by Monty Brewster to the bemusement of his friend Spike Nolan (John Candy) and his accountant Angela Drake (Lonette Davis). I remember the movie being a lot funnier in the 80's but it was still solid today. Sadly, at least three of the main characters are dead today: Richard Pryor, John Candy and Jerry Orbach.
