What can we say? Pryor and Candy in the same movie! Shout Factory presents Walter Hill’s Brewster’s Millions (1985) on a collector’s edition Blu-ray. Stars Richard Pryor and John Candy.
Montgomery Brewster has 30 days to spend $30 million… What could go wrong?
Minor league baseball pitcher Montgomery Brewster (Richard Pryor, Car Wash) gets the surprise of his life when he learns a rich, distant relative has died and left him his entire fortune. But there’s a catch: he must spend $30 million in 30 days as a condition of receiving his real inheritance of $300 million.
And to complicate matters, he can’t tell anyone why he’s “throwing away” all that cash … or he will forfeit everything! With the help of his pal Spike (John Candy, Spaceballs), he sets off on a frantic spending spree the likes of which would bring any self-respecting accountant to their knees.
Based on the novel by George Barr McCutcheon, Brewster’s Millions has been adapted for the stage, television, radio, and more than ten times as a film the world over. Also starring Lonette McKee (Malcolm X), Jerry Orbach (Law & Order), Pat Hingle (Batman), and Hume Cronyn (Cocoon), Brewster’s Millions is a classic screwball comedy that throws plenty of curves and knocks it out of the park.
