Richard Pryor, John Candy, Lonette McKee, Stephen Collins, Jerry Orbach DVD Run time: 101 mins. Aspect ratio: 1.85: 1. Originally released: 1985. Language: English. Movie ... synopsis 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.

Overview

The seventh cinema adaptation of the venerable stage farce Brewster's Millions stars Richard Pryor as Montgomery Brewster, a third-rate baseball player. Much to his amazement, Brewster discovers that he is related to deceased millionaire Rupert Horn (Hume Cronyn, who appears only in a videotaped "living will"). Even more amazing is the fact that Horn has left Brewster his entire $300 million fortune. The catch? Brewster must spend $30 million within 30 days, or he'll be left with nothing (in the earlier incarnations of Brewster's Millions, the hero was required to spend only a million, but this was, after all, the inflationary '80s). Aiding and abetting Brewster in his efforts to divest himself of his money are his catcher pal (John Candy) and an erstwhile lady friend (Lonette McKee), while his principal antagonist is a snotty attorney (Stephen Collins).

    Cash $$ Comedy.

    Richard Pryor was a LOL a minute. If you enjoy Richard Pryor's funny movies you will enjoy this one. Grab yourself some great laughs with this cash comedy. Also, if you enjoy this version then check out the original version with Dennis O'Keefe, Helen Walker, and June Havoc. As Brewster tries to do what he is told to do to get more $$ he is being "undermined" by those closest to him thinking they are helping him. This is just hilarious fun. You might wish you had Brewster's "problem." Favorable: a LOL good time.

    "mony pitches and I catch - the money won't change us!"

    A riotus & endearing look at freindship, greed, snobbery and all that's in between. Candy & Pryor at their best!
