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.

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.

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.....

This is a very funny movie, with a good message too.

I've never been much of a Richard Pryor fan previously, but he is just perfect in this film. John Candy is also perfect as Brewster's best friend.

I never saw this movie years ago, don't know how I missed it being such a big fan of John Candy's work. But I'm certainly glad I noted it on Amazon's sale list recently and got this DVD.

Buy it if you are in need of some big laughs, you won't be sorry!

I was watching this movie the night before I placed my order on a station that generally plays older movies and it got me to thinking about the great movies of the past. I knew I had to have this in my collection. I know most folks don't do actual DVD's (I really don't either, I typically buy them then burn copies to my hard drive so that I can easily access them without having to get up and change it out), but this was one that I will cherish for a long time. Still makes me laugh after all these years.

Classic comedy never gets old. Two comic geniuses both gone too soon as well as some other familiar faces (Rick Moranis, Conrad Janis, Larry Tate/Darin's boss from Bewitched, etc.). Watched it with my tweens and they all enjoyed it even though it's more than twice their age. Great premise (yeah, I know it's a remake) great performances, lots of laughs and good clean fun.
