Walter Hill directed Richard Pryor in the comedy Brewster's Millions, which comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. French and Spanish subtitles are accessible, and the soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include the theatrical trailer and production notes. Aside from the solid picture quality, there is little on this Universal release that will interest the average DVD consumer.

    Synopsis


    Brewster's Millions
    The seventh cinema adaptation of the venerable stage farce Brewster's Millions stars Richard Pryor as Montgomery Brewster, a third-rate baseball player. Much to his amazement, Brewster discovers that he is related to deceased millionaire Rupert Horn (Hume Cronyn, who appears only in a videotaped "living will"). Even more amazing is the fact that Horn has left Brewster his entire $300 million fortune. The catch? Brewster must spend $30 million within 30 days, or he'll be left with nothing (in the earlier incarnations of Brewster's Millions, the hero was required to spend only a million, but this was, after all, the inflationary '80s). Aiding and abetting Brewster in his efforts to divest himself of his money are his catcher pal (John Candy) and an erstwhile lady friend (Lonette McKee), while his principal antagonist is a snotty attorney (Stephen Collins). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Everybody loves to laugh. Pryor and Candy make a great comedy team. The connection the two have is simply natural. Both characters are crazy and bounce off each other. What would you do if you had to blow 30M? Have fun as they did. Brewster's Millions is a movie that you'll enjoy many times. Defintitely a bust for your spirit. You'll view this more than once, more than 10X. Pryor fans have the chance to see him as the comedian that we grew to love.

      Richard Pryor and John Candy - Who could ask for a better pair? It's a fun movie with lots of heart. I really wish "None of the above" was a viable option in elections.

      Richard Pryor, John Candy, who could ask for more in this classic comedy? Monty Brewster is right, just vote for "None of the Above!"

      This is a great 80's movie staring two great comics Richard Pryor and John Candy. If you like either one you will love this movie.
