      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      With Richard Pryor's trademark ribald humor tamped down, Brewster's Millions feels like a missed opportunity to update a classic story.

      Will S This movie is brilliant and plays it straight the entire time. I'm not sure why all the bad votes, but this is so smart and the PG rating barely hurts it. Rewatching it in 2024 arises the same issues the movie poked fun at in the first place. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/01/24 Full Review Mutazz D This movie is a most own and must view. This isn't an all comedy laugh fest like one would come to expect from John Candy and Richard Pryor, although it does have it's share of laughs, I would consider it a good retelling of a great morality tale that stands the test of time. Miss you guys!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Funny and original, including kissing scenes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Es una comedia con Richard Pryor y John Candy; es muy recomendable. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A flat out comedy that is... well... flat. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member A fun story that rarely slows down amid the comedy to spend $30m in 30 days. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/23/21 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Mitchell Beaupre Paste Magazine That Brewster’s Millions isn’t a bucket of laughs is precisely the reason why it works. Rated: 7.5/10 Sep 29, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy After a million brewskies, Brewster's Millions is passable fare as a late-night viewing option, but those seeking genuine laughs would do well to look elsewhere. Rated: 2/4 Jan 19, 2020 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a justifiably forgotten relic of the 1980s. Rated: 2/4 Mar 8, 2016 Full Review Charles Cassady Common Sense Media Tamed Pryor in '80s comedy with some salty language.
