just imagine what you would do with millions of dollars.
this movie takes you away from reality, if only for an hour or so.

What would you do with $300,000,000?

"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!"
Extremely Funny Movie

"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."
