Brewster's Millions (1985)

Brewster's Millions (1985)This pairing is "Buddy's Underrated Comedies" and we kick it off with a Richard Pryor/John Candy team-up from the mid 1980s! Directed by Walter Hill, and based on a novel by George Barr McCutcheon, written in 1902, this 1985 film tells the story of minor league baseball pitcher Monty Brewster (Pryor) and his best friend and catcher Spike Nolan (Candy). Brewster has just been kicked off the team when he's dragged into the office of Edward Roundfield (Pat Hingle) and, as the Executor of the will, informs Brewster that he's the last remaining heir of the late Rupert Horn (Hume Cronyn) and has been left 300 million dollars. But there's a catch: He has to spend 30 million in 30 days without telling anyone else it's a condition of the will. He is assigned a legal secretary, Angela Drake (Lonette McKee) who will keep track of his spending for the law firm, but her boyfriend Warren Cox (Stephen Collins) is secretly working for the bank to sabotage Monty's efforts.
