Movie Info

The seventh cinema adaptation of the venerable stage farce Brewster's Millions stars Richard Pryor as Montgomery Brewster, a third-rate baseball player. Much to his amazement, Brewster discovers that he is related to deceased millionaire Rupert Horn (Hume Cronyn, who appears only in a videotaped "living will"). Even more amazing is the fact that Horn has left Brewster his entire $300 million fortune. The catch? Brewster must spend $30 million within 30 days, or he'll be left with nothing (in the

Tamed Pryor in '80s comedy with some salty language.

Lame recycled flick that wants to be "Arthur" and "Trading Places" but isn't.

One version too many of the classic comedy.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Hardly the finest version of this old yarn

A film of unrealized potential.

Juicy Cerebellum

A flat, gutless remake.

Classic Richard Pryor

Great to see Walter Hill shifting genres. Pryor is a standout.

A simplistic remake of an oft-told tale. Pryor does PG like porn stars do Shakespeare.

Compared to Which Way Is Up?, Brewster's is a work of art. Even on it's own merits, Brewster's is above average.

Just don't look for any messages of financial responsibility.

Pryor appears to self-delete expletives in Brewster's Millions by making a litany of far more offensive Stepin Fetchit facial expressions.

Audience Reviews for Brewster's Millions

Brewster's Millions, present a intelligent plot, that could have a better screenplay, and a comic cast with Richard Pryor, John Candy, Hume Cronyn, Archie Hahn and Rick Moranis. But the film become desappointing, showing a not so exciting script and a weak direction by Hill. However, it's a interesting movie. Probably, the anothers films, based on the homonym novel Brewster's Millions are better that is 1985 picture. Rotten.

This is actually a remake of an older movie, but Pryor is such a great comedy actor, it's really his movie, and it's very entertaining.
