Richie Rich'$ Christmas Wish

You would think that being bitten by a radioactive $100 bill would be the basis of an affluent comic book character.

However, the only power the world's richest kid in this family-comedy possesses is that of financial persuasion.

After his envious cousin Reggie Van Dough (Jake Richardson) sabotages Richie Rich (David Gallagher) and his butler Cadbury's (Keene Curtis) sleigh, and slanders him around town, Richie uses a wish machine - cooked up by one of his scientists - to wish he'd never been born.

Trapped in a world where Reggie is now the richest and meanest kid in the world, Richie races to obtain the dinosaur fossil that will fuel this alternate realities disengaged wishing machine.

With a story that borrows heavily from superior seasonal fare and a cast of no names replacing the noteworthy originals, Richie Rich'$ Christmas Wish is bankrupt.

As for my Christmas wish: no Christmas until December 1. (Red Light)
