Movie Info

Elderly Uncle Joe (Kirk Douglas) made his fortune as a businessman, and now his heirs are maneuvering to ensure they get their portions of it once he dies. Uncle Joe isn't too keen on most of his ungrateful family members, though, so they call on the old man's favorite nephew, Daniel (Michael J. Fox), to make their case. He doesn't much care about the money, but as his obnoxious relatives gather at Joe's mansion, Daniel realizes he and the aging millionaire share a contempt for their own family.

Audience Reviews for Greedy

  • Mar 14, 2013
    Greedy is an entertaining screwball comedy that delivers a lot of laughs despite the stale material. The film follows the McTeagues, a dysfunctional family full of relatives that are competing to inherit their rich uncle's fortune. Starring Michael J. Fox, Kirk Douglas, Olivia d'Abo, and Phil Hartman, the cast has some solid talent. And though the plot's pretty formulaic and is full of stereotypes, the charisma of the cast makes it work. While there's not much originality to Greedy, it still manages to be quite funny and enjoyable.

    "Greedy is a great title for this film considering all the crazy money hungry characters that are in this flick. I remember seeing this a long time ago. I couldn't remember what it was all about, so I decided to give it another look. It's funny, silly, cheesy, and at times, acted poorly. Kirk and Fox are the stars of the show. They are great together on screen. Uncle Joe strategically puts his family members against each other to see how far they will go to try and win him over for his milions. There is always some kind of scheme going on whether it's coming from Uncle Joe or his crazy nieces and nephews. It was a fun watch. I wouldn't mind seeing it again later on down the road."

    phil hartman is funny but the film overall is a mess. michael j fox is wasted in a thankless role and the spirit of the movie is quite off.

    It, s an crazy movie about some relatives to a old man Played by Kirk Douglas, How far would you go for money these people do everything just to satisfy the old man .. but thing got out of control and you Nerves expect what to happen ... The greedy relatives Carl McTeague (Ed Begley, Jr.), Ed (Bob Balaban) and Frank (Phil Hartman) among others of a wealthy, wheelchair-using scrap-metal tycoon, Uncle Joe McTeague (Kirk Douglas), continually suck up to him to inherit his millions. With their attempts constantly failing and irritable Uncle Joe showing a decided interest in his new "nurse" (Olivia d'Abo), the family decides to bring in Daniel (who turned his back on the family years ago) believing if they can make up, Uncle Joe will thaw towards them. Instead of finding Daniel, they find his son Danny (Michael J. Fox), of whom Uncle Joe had always been especially fond. Professional bowler Danny left the family with his father, but he accepts the cousins' invitation to return-after rolling a gutter ball in a big tournament and finding out that he has a pre-arthritic condition developing in his wrist. Danny's television sports producer girlfriend Robin (Nancy Travis) encourages him to ask Uncle Joe for a loan to invest in a bowling alley. A typically rude and crude Joe says he will lend the money only if Danny sides with him against his own father. Danny is offended; but he begins to compete for Uncle Joe's money if only to keep it out of the hands of "nurse" Molly and the greedy relatives. In the end, Uncle Joe agrees to leave everything to Danny only to reveal that he is actually swimming in debt. He simply needed to find out "who really loves me." Danny and Robin agree to take care of him from now on, but Uncle Joe has another surprise or two in store for them.
