apple tv: Brewster’s Millions

Brewster’s Millions (1985)

It’s a risk watching a movie that you only remember from childhood. Will it have aged well, or will you be left wishing you’d left it a memory. Happily, the premise underlying this film (Richard Pryor has 30 days to spend $30 million and have no assets left, so he can inherit $300 million, but he can’t tell anyone what he’s doing or why) remains compelling.

More a comedy of situations than one-liners, it’s a fun ride, and a flash-back to the 1980’s. And don’t forget the chance to watch John Candy one more time.
