You cannot get what you’ve never had unless you’re willing to do what you’ve never done.


When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it - always.
- Mahatma Gandhi


The Lion asked the Wizard one time, "When does a slave become a king?"

"When You start acting like one! "

Otherwise You remain a slave all Your life.

What's it like to come into millions suddenly?  Perhaps there are some lessons here.


One of the great things about movies is that it captures a moment in time forever. They reflect the times and provide a snapshot of history. In a strange way the series of films called 'Brewster's Millions', help to document the procession of inflation in this country. Since 1914 there has been a half a dozen films by this name. Each had the same plot, waste a certain amount of money in order to inherit a vastly larger sum. At first it was $100,000 to get a million, by 1985 it was spend $30 million to get $300 million. Unlike most remakes, in this case the last is by far the best of the lot. Monty Brewster (Richard Pryor) is a broken down minor league baseball pitcher. He can barely pay for the necessities of life. One day out of the blue something happens to change his life. It turns out that Monty is the sole heir to a large fortune left him by his great grand uncle (Hume Crone).

Monty is the (literally) back sheep of the family in accordance with grand uncle's bizarre sense of humor; Monty will inherit $300 million if he can waste $30 million in 30 days. There are a few catches. He cannot tell anyone about the terms, he cannot have anything left of value at the end of the 30 days and he can't just give it away. Monty enlists the aide of an unwitting and dimwitted friend to help him spend his money. Spike Nolan (John Candy) the catcher in the broken down team, joins Monty in a wild spending spree. Of course, if all could possibly go smoothly there would be no movie.

Overseeing the spending of the money is the bad guy, Warren Cox (Stephen Collins). If Monty fails his firm will gain control of the money. He is bent on making sure Monty fails. There is also a pretty young woman, Angela Drake (Lonette McKee). She has to document the spending. Since she doesn't know the details she is shocked at the apparent wasteful way Monty is spending. Being a beautiful young woman she of course becomes the object of Monty's affections. The ways that Monty devises to spend his money are funny and in at least one case a biting indictment of this country, he decides the best way to throw money away is to enter the race for the mayor of NYC. His campaign slogan is the pointed "I'll only make things worse, and that's a promise!"

Richard Prior at his best. Brewsters millions shows that anyhting is possible. It is not a film about money but a film about life and choosing to believe that anything is possible. For Brewster first believes money is important and then realises that the heart is the most important thing to life.
