Editorial Reviews

Richard Pryor is Montgomery Brewster, a minor league baseball pitcher who discovers he has to blow $30 million on 30 days as a condition to inherit a much greater fortune. Here's the catch: He will forfeit everything if he reveals to a soul the real reason he seems to be throwing away all that cash. With the help of his pal Spike (John Candy), they set off on a frantic spending spree the likes of which would bring any self-respecting accountant to his knees.

    I've never really been a huge fan of most of Richard Pryor's films, but I have to say that "Brewster's Millions" is a very funny movie.
    The film revolves around Monty Brewster, a baseball player with dreams of making it to the major leagues. One day he discovers that an uncle he knew nothing about has left him an inheritance because Monty is his only living relative. Monty's uncle tells him, via video before he died, that he wants Monty to absolutely hate spending money. He wants to test him. So Monty has a decision to make. He can either spend $30 million in 30 days WITHOUT having any assets and ultimately inherit $300 million or he can take $1 million and be safe. Of course Monty chooses to go for the $300 million, and what happens next are some of the craziest, funniest, and kindness acts you'll ever see in a film. I won't give away the ending, but you'll be amazed at how hard it is to spend $30 millions and not have any assets to back it up.
    John Candy does a good job playing Monty's best friend in the film. It's a shame that we lost him so many years ago. It's also a shame that Richard Pryor can no longer perform like he used to due to his illness.
    I would highly suggest this film because it is not only funny, but it also wraps you up into the lives and some incredibly funny and fortunate people!

    Pryor & Candy make a great team in this hilariouse movie about a man who must spend 30 million dollars in 30 days. It makes you think "what would I do if I were in his situation?" A very fun movie, and definitely a MUST SEE for anyone.

    This was great. Imaging inheriting $300 million. All the things that you could do and accomplish. But, there's a catch. In order to get the money, you have to do something first.
    You have to spend $30 million in 30 days. Not too bad you say... At the end of the 30 days, you can't have a single dime left. Nothing but the clothes on you back. And, while you are spending the money, you can't tell anyone why....
    Now, throw Pryor in as the person doing the inheriting and Candy in as his best friend. They are both down on their luck minor league baseball players. Pryor is spending millions and Candy is along for the ride. After several days, Candy tries to get Pryor to stop "wasting" the cash....
    The things they buy and do.... So funny.
    What would you do in these circumstances? Don't forget, nothing must remain at the end of 30 days.....

    Hmm...let's see...For starters, I would buy myself five or six mansions in different parts of the world, possibly start up a car collection, or perhaps take a few dozen trips around the world and deposit the rest in a bank account. The point is, "Brewster's Millions" is a delightful comedy that stars Richard Pryor as a down and out ex-professional baseball player who must spend thirty million dollars in thirty days. If he is successful, he'll inherit $300,000,000. Sounds easy, right? The catch is that Mr. Pryor must have no assets of any kind after the thirty days to obtain the money. John Candy co-stars as Pryor's buddy and is an "en route" benefactor to Pryor's real fortune. Stephen Collins also co-stars as an attorney who would like nothing more than to con Pryor out of his millions so he can obtain the fortune for his future firm Granville and Baxter. Pat Hingle does an outstanding job as the overseer of the conditions of Montgomery Brewster's (Pryor) great uncle's (Hume Cronyn) will. All this makes for a well-crafted, suspensful comedy. o do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of "Brewster's Millions" today. Chuck Fleming (Peter Jason), Action News!

    Often times people ask the question; What would you do if you had a million dollars? Well if you need some suggestions check out this movie. The overall plot is that Pryor has 30 days to spend 30 Million dollars if he wants to gain an even bigger fortune. The movie provides quite a few gags. The gags don't all work, but the concept is so interesting that it really doesn't matter. This movie not only gives us a few laughs but gives us a peek at just how rich some people (like Bill Gates for instance) must be.

    Everybody loves to laugh. Pryor and Candy make a great comedy team. The connection the two have is simply natural. Both characters are crazy and bounce off each other. What would you do if you had to blow 30M? Have fun as they did. Brewster's Millions is a movie that you'll enjoy many times. Defintitely a bust for your spirit. You'll view this more than once, more than 10X. Pryor fans have the chance to see him as the comedian that we grew to love.

    I've watched this film a couple of times over the last 25 years and it remains funny, manic and endearing. And Richard Pryor is still a gem of an actor. Some people may find him hammy, but I actually find him quite enjoyable and believable. There are human moments where you realise how unique an actor Richard Pryor was. He was one of a kind. Plus there weren't many Black actors in his position at the time, before or since. That's one thing that strikes me as I watch it today - unless you count a Jamie Foxx. Or Chris Rock, etc - but it's not quite the same. Pryor had a different presence that made him "everyman" and yet this strangely comedic, neurotic but capable character.

    John Candy is actually youthful and exuberant in this too. Rick Moranis has a cameo too. Great to watch.

    Brewster's Millions is a lot better than so many other comedies today, and I wouldn't be surprised if it gets dusted from the vaults again by Hollywood...I actually think director Walter Hill (48 hours) did a good job. This really holds up well.
