What's sort of wonderful is the way this movie takes that old formula and makes it fresh and new, with actors who give it wit and charm.

Culkin looks really bored. Maybe because "Richie Rich" is so damn boring.

Most of the time, Richie Rich is too busy oohing and ahhing over the junk that money can buy to relax and have a good time.

The filmmakers seem to think of their movie as a fiduciary fable, but they're not quite sure about its moral.

There's absolutely nothing here you haven't seen before, and while some kids might be mildly entertained, they would probably be even happier just staying home.

Be careful about taking kids under 7 or 8 as it may scare them.
