Spoiled brat ruins Christmas for Richie
28 February 2002 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

After being sabotaged on his yearly Christmas run to the orphans home, Richie Rich begins feeling sorry for himself and wishes he was never born. What happens is a total surprise to the boy and leads to situation much worse than the one he was so upset over. Some of the acting was extremely bad as was much of the tale; so silly it was pretty much for kids only. The one truly bright spot was the beastly little Reggie Rich, a little snot I would take pleasure in permanently maiming.
