Richie Rich is the world's poor little rich boy. He's the richest kid on Earth, but all he really wants are friends (well, he's got everything else). He spends his days living by a meticulous schedule that sometimes even includes filling in for his father at public appearances. His wealthy schoolmates are just as busy as he is and not quite as desperate to do "regular kid things" as Richie. While filling in for his father at a public event, however, Richie takes notice of some inner-city, street-wise kids playing baseball in a vacant lot nearby and makes an attempt to join in. They soon make it clear that he does not belong, and poor Richie goes home in despair. Seeing his disappointment, Richie's protective and caring butler, Cadbury, makes arrangements for the kids to come to the Rich family mansion and spend a day with the boy, much to Richie's joy and surprise! The gang of kids have a ball riding Richie's rollercoaster, trying out his kid-a-pult, and eating in his own, personal McDonald's. At the end of the day, Richie's new friends have accepted him as being just another regular kid, though they more than appreciate the benefits that come with his friendship. Still, feisty redhead Gloria, self-appointed leader of the bunch, makes it clear that they like Richie more for who he is than for all the neat stuff he has. Richie doesn't have much time to be happy about that, though. Word soon arrives that Richie's parents, benign but sometimes clueless Richard and Regina Rich, were victims of an assassination attempt and are now lost at sea and assumed dead. As the Riches survive in a life raft on Perrier and champagne, Richie is forced to take over the family company and keep it safe from malicious top executive Lawrence Van Dough, who planned the attack on Richie's parents in the first place.Read more ›

Great movie for the family. Positive message about it not being what you have, but what you have inside you. Also the proverbial good guy wins theme

I think this is really a cute movie for families. I like the contrast that is given between the "villain" and Richie's parents. After all, their true treasures WERE in that mountain vault, because they valued their sentimental family memories over material wealth. I believe that is a good message to send to kids, but very few Hollywood films portray that. Richie Rich shows a family who "has everything" with the real emphasis on the relationship between the family members, especially father and son.

I'm an adult and did not find this movie "unwatchable." In fact, I've seen it twice. I like the fact that is reasonably clean, too, and promotes good things like the fact that to Richie's parents the sentimental things are of greater value to them than the material things and that to Richie and his faithful valet having friends and treating them right is more important than all their wealth. This is one that I allow my kids to see and enjoy. Tons better than "Babe--Pig in the City" (although the first "Babe" was great!) Richie Rich promotes decent values of wealthy people who are generous with those less fortunate. And besides that, it's definitely cute and "watchable" for many. We must not always dismiss a clean, decent movie because we don't personally like it. We must allow for the various tastes of different people. I personally don't think "Shakespeare In Love" deserved even an Oscar Nomination, yet it won! Obviously we don't all think the same, so some of your friends and mine would enjoy Richie Rich, I'm sure!

This is what you might call as Macaulay Culkin's farewell to childhood, or his life as a child actor, by making this movie, and then not appearing in another movie for 9 long years, and even in that period of time, there might have been plenty of fans that forgotten him until he made and released Party Monster in 2003, but that movie really doesn't have much to do this movie, and I bet even at the end of 1994, that people where saying and thinking that this would be Macaulay Culkin's last ever movie or even as a child actor, even through he reached the age of 14 on August 26th, 1994. The movie is Richie Rich, where you might also see two cent signs in place of the two c's in the title. At the beginning of the movie Ritchie Rich is born to Richard (Edward Herrmann) and Regina Rich (Christine Ebersole) , and then 12 years later it looks like he has everything, he has his own butler Herbert Cadbury (Jonathan Hyde), and is the richiest kid in the world, but where are his friends? Oh yeah, he doesn't have any, not like he is mean, his father saved a company from going out of busines, but can't be at the grand re-openning so he sends Richie who even spends time playing baseball, and spots local kids playing baseball, but because of his busy schedule he is not allowed to even join in the game. So he decicees that this is the missing part of his life. And along being the heir to his family riches, he even has a cool satellite-driven Dadlink, that is acomputer system, that tracks down Richard from wherever he is, so Richie can chat with him as he wishes too, when his Dad is out on the road. And there is family inventor Professor Keenbean (Michael McShane), who is apart of Richie's life, and is his teacher in chemistory class.Read more ›
