Brewster’s Millions (1985) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Brewster’s Millions will sit on few people’s lists of best films of the 80’s.  But actually over 30 years on, it holds up well and the message is probably even more relevant today than ever.  To be honest it’s just great to see Richard Pryor back when almost everything he touches turned to gold.  Add to that a cast that includes the late, great John Candy and you have a real gem of mid-80’s cinema.  It’s silly, brash and on the nose for sure but it’s full of charm, wit and heart as well.

Best Bit: None Of The Above!
