This movie is NOT just about a kid who has no friends and spends a million dollars. It is really about learning to appreciate REAL friends, and that people who like you for your money aren't real friends at all. In addition, the movie is a kids' wish-fullfillment fantasy, as a kid manages to spend a million dollars in six days. He learns some important lessons about life, while managing to escape the consequences of his actions through lucky happenstance.
I thought it was a fun movie, and I loved it myself! The movie was great for eight-year-olds, and I know my eleven-year-old daughter would have loved it, too, if she had had the chance to watch it with me.
Preston Waters (Brian Bonsall - the cute little kid in "Family Ties" who has now disappeared from acting) is the invisible kid in his family. Preston seems to have difficulty catching a break. He has to ride the awful rides at a theme park. His brothers move their junk into his room because they are enterprising and are starting a business. Preston is unable to start a checking account because he has less than the $200 minimum balance. However, Preston meets beautiful Shay Stanley (Karen Duffy) while at the bank, little realizing that Shay had an itty bitty secret.
Preston's life reaches a low point when a fellow named Quigley (Miguel Ferrer) runs over his bicycle and destroys it. Quigley is writing a check when a police car shows up. Since Quigley is on the run from the police, Quigley hands Preston a signed blank check to pay for the damaged bicycle and leaves as quickly as possible.
Preston gets a very clever idea. Preston wonders whether he might be able to write a check for a thousand...no, wait...a MILLION dollars. I could tell that Preston did not actually think he would be able to get away with writing a check for a million dollars. To Preston, and my, surprise, a shady bank executive named Biderman (Michael Lerner) honors the million dollar check, thinking that Quigley had sent Preston to pick the money up.Read more ›

Preston (Brian Bonsall) was getting grounded a lot. & being asked to go upstairs to his room, not allowed to leave the house to go to the park or spend time with his friends. When his bicycle gets ran over by a thief named Quigley Miguel Ferrer (Robocop), he gives him a check to buy a new one, The good news Preston gets to decide the amount that he wants taken out from the check. & cashes in for a million dollars, that's not all he disguises himself on line where nobody can find out his identity, & pretends to be a mysterious resident of his own neighborhood named Mac McIntosh. & begins scrolling up & down the internet after deciding he wants his own house, & he's not going to tolerate the rules from his Dad anymore,
Once he finds his own place, everything's in. & if your not invited to Macintoshes' place, your not welcome. He handles his ordeal by sneaking out of the house. To go to work at Macintoshes' place. One & only detail is he gets to play, watch TV, swim in the fancy pool, play Atari, drink a soda pop, you name it. He can do as much of that as he darn well pleases. & enjoys other activities. I liked his Limo driver,
Only one problem though, crooks are looking all over the place for the money when they learn their deal got messed up. & the money was given to the wrong person. He dodges most meetings if someone wants to meet Macintosh.Read more ›
