Storyline

Monty Brewster is a penniless, former U.S. Army soldier back from World War II Europe who learns that he has inherited $8 million from a distant relative. But there's a catch: he must spend $1 million of that money in less than two months before his 30th birthday in order to inherit the rest. But since he cannot tell anyone about him spending the money as part of the agreement, everyone thinks that Brewster has flipped when he practically knocks himself out on a spending spree to get rid of the $1 million in time. Written by Matthew Patay

Goofs

When a phone rings on Brewster's desk, he picks up the wrong phone. His friend answers the ringing phone and passes it to Brewster and then places Brewster's hand set on the ringing phone's cradle, which would have ended the phone call. Brewster finishes his call and puts the handset on the other cradle. Then that phone rings and he has another conversation which is also impossible. See more »

Quotes

Montague L. 'Monty' Brewster: I heard you'd join the Navy.
Jackson: So did the Japs. There was more Hari-Kari and throat cutting than a Harlem rent party.

The best of the several versions
3 May 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Tune your brain to the days when a dollar bought a LOT. Then watch this version of "Brewster's Millions." It is absolutely hysterical, and none of the more recent versions come close.
