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!
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.....
I watch this movie when I want to dream about hitting the lottery.
I watch this movie when I want to laugh at the comedic timing of John Candy
I watch this movie when I want to see a plain ole funny movie.
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!
