Could you spend $30 million in 30 days and have nothing to show for it? That's exactly what Richard Pryor has to accomplish in this hilarious contemporary version of the classic big money comedy.
Montgomery Brewster (Pryor) is a down-and-out baseball player who discovers that he's the only living relative of an eccentric multi-millionaire (Hume Cronyn). Monty stands to inherit $300 million, but only if he can spend $30 million in a single month without acquiring any assets. If he fails, it's back to zero again.
On hand to help Pryor spend his loot are John Candy, Lonette McKee and Stephen Collins. This outrageous spree-for-all is directed by Walter Hill and produced by Lawrence Gordon and Joel Silver, with a screenplay by the team that wrote Trading Places. It's an American excess story that's enriching to funny-bones of all ages.
John Candy stars in this John Hughes comedy as an idle, good-natured bachelor who’s left in charge of his nephew and nieces during a family crisis. Unaccustomed to suburban life, fun loving Uncle Buck soon charms his younger relatives Miles and Maizy with his hefty cooking and his new way of doing the laundry. But his carefree style doesn’t impress everyone, including Tia (Jean Kelly), his rebellious teenage niece, and Chanice (Amy Madigan), his impatient girlfriend. Uncle Buck is the last person you’d think of to watch the kids. But with a little luck and a lot of love, he manages to surprise everyone in this heartwarming family comedy.
