Brewster’s Millions

Brewster’s Millions poses a simple premise and ends with a not-so simple solution. The story begins with Montgomery Brewster’s (Richard Pryor) dream of becoming a major league baseball pitcher. As he notices someone in the stands taking his picture, he imagines the photographer must be a scout. Brewster soon realizes that the “scout” is actually a private eye working for a bloated lawyer group in charge of Monty’s great uncle’s estate. Although the fact that Monty’s great uncle is white barely plays into the plot of Millions, it does inform a certain posture the film has depicting race and class in 1984 New York City. Millions embodies a true “what would you do” film while still rooting for Brewster to make his millions. 

Directed by Walter Hill, 1985, 97 minutes, PG.
