Richie Rich

Critics Consensus

With Macaulay Culkin barely registering any emotion, Richie Rich feels disjointed and free of a sense of fun and wonderment.

Movie Info

This action comedy is based upon the Harvey comic book character Richie Rich. Richie, is the wealthiest 12-year old on the planet. His loving, philanthropic parents have provided with everything he could ever want or need, but for one thing. Richie has personal trainers, a butler, toys to die for, and even his own Mac Donald's in his home, but he has no friends to play with. The kids he goes to school with are far more interested in being little capitalists than children. Richie's butler, Cadbury, is sympathetic to his ward's plight and finds him some working-class kids to pal around with. Meanwhile, the wicked Lawrence Van Dough is planning to take over Richie's father's company by having the whole Rich family die in a freak airplane accident. Richie and Cadbury are not on the plane when it crashes, and they are left to find the parents and foil Van Dough's plot. Richie is assisted by his new friends and by the wacky Professor Keenbean. The film's climax offers a spoof of "North by Northwest."

    This is one of my old school favorites. It has some great laughs and good wholesome story. Surprisingly has a little action too, something the whole family to enjoy.

    One of the worst adaptation of a cartoon. It's so poorly made, with terrible children actors as leading actors, total abomination.
