Your basic riches-to-rags comedy.
Could you spend $30 million dollars in 30 days and have nothing to show for it? That's exactly what Richard Pryor has to accomplish in this hilarious contemporary version of George Barr McCutcheon's big money comedy classic. Montgomery Brewster (Pryor) is a down-and-out baseball player who discovers that he's the only living relative of an eccentric millionaire (Hume Cronyn). Monty stands to inherit $300 million, but only if he can spend $30 million in a single month without acquiring any tangible assets, and without telling any of his bedazzled and bewildered friends, including his best buddy, Spike (John Candy). If he fails, it's back to zero again. On hand to help Pryor spend his loot are Jerry Orbach, Tovah Feldshuh and Pat Hingle. It's an American excess story that's enriching to funnybones of all ages.
Editor's Note
Director Walter Hill tries his hand at this adaptation of the oft-filmed novel by George Barr McCutcheon. Richard Pryor stars as Brewster, a penniless, struggling pitcher for a minor league baseball team. His luck changes when he is informed that a wealthy uncle has died, leaving him a vast fortune under one condition: in order to inherit the full amount, he must first spend 30 million dollars in thirty days. The caveat: he may not give it away, spend it frivolously, or tell anyone about the arrangement and at the end of the thirty days, no tangible assets may remain. Richard Pryor and John Candy both turn in excellent comic performances as two bush league baseball players thrust into the world of the wealthy, helping make BREWSTER'S MILLIONS a winner.
