A minor league baseball player has to spend thirty million dollars in thirty days, in order to inherit three hundred million dollars. However, he’s not allowed to tell anyone about the deal. (IMDb)
You’d think the premise would be ripe for comedic pickin’ but it’s mostly just Brewster exuding stress and hiring people for absurd salaries, and the jokes thrown in on top of that are next to none (Candy’s disappointingly underutilized). Had the potential to say something thoughtful about money, but didn’t bother with that either, instead putting energy towards developing a lifeless romance. Pryor has a certain charismatic presence as the lead but it’s not enough to make an engaging comedy.
