Our Score
Director Walter Hill and comedy are always an uneasy combination, and this hackneyed, overlong tale glaringly proves the point. Add Richard Pryor in manic mode and you have a major disappointment that fell flat even when it was made. This was the seventh time the story had been filmed - man left millions in will but first has to spend large amount in 30 days - which should have sounded a note of caution all round, but didn't. As usual, Pryor overacts wildly.


A baseball player is stunned to learn he has come into a massive inheritance. Unfortunately, there is one condition - he must somehow find a way to spend $30million in just one month, or he will lose the lot. Meanwhile, two scheming lawyers, who stand to get the money if he fails, are determined to sabotage his efforts. Comedy, starring Richard Pryor, John Candy, Lonette McKee and Jerry Orbach.
