Brewster's Millions Reviews
Total classic, great set up and premise that plays out better than most. Suspenseful and hilarious. Comedy genius with Pryor and Candy, Seriously, just swallow a shotgun if you're not into this movie!
The race is on as he starts hiring anyone he can to help him and his friend Spike Nolan (John Candy) is trying to help him. He rents out a major hotel, gambles, and invests in many different ventures, only to find that some of these are actually making him money. The way he comes off trying to spend the money becomes frivolous and wasteful. He becomes frustrated and begins to lose the respect of some of his friends, and particularly the woman he is interested, his accountant Angela Drake (Lonette McKee). He decides to get even more creative and starts to run for mayor to help bleed through his money.
Brewster's Million's was an interesting and original comedy. Pryor is a lovable character and you root for his quest and his lavish ideas to spend the money. Candy offers a great support character as he usually does in movies. The movie is an 80s comedy and is reminiscent of some of its contemporaries such as Coming to America. The movie is by no means a definitive comedy, but was good enough film.
A favourite of mine !!
