Richie Rich is a bad comic to make into a movie. I don't know what kind of problems Richie Rich has to overcome. It seems like a comic about a kid and his toys. The movie isn't cartoon fun. It does actually has some limited thrills. The characters are good for the most part. The mix of children's comic and real action don't always coexist easily. It's not that terrible but it doesn't really feel joyous.
