Richard Pryor is Montgomery Brewster, a minor league baseball pitcher who discovers he has to blow $30 million in 30 days as a condition to inherit a much greater fortune. Here's the catch: He will forfeit everything if he reveals to a soul the real reason he seems to be throwing away all that cash. With the help of his pal Spike (John Candy), they set off on a frantic spending spree the likes of which would bring any self-respecting accountant to his knees.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: With Richard Pryor's trademark ribald humor tamped down, Brewster's Millions feels like a missed opportunity to update a classic story.

Common Sense Says
Tamed Pryor in '80s comedy with some salty language.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this '80s-era comedy has a fair amount of swearing and drinking. The leading character is supposed to be a womanizer, though no sex is shown onscreen. Even though the plot doesn't exactly endorse greed, it does show Brewster being enormously popular when he has tons of money, a nobody when he doesn't. And he seems to be having more fun with the tons of money.
