Better than the first 'Richie Rich' movie!
16 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

I rented RICHIE RICH'S CHRISTMAS WISH way back when it first came to video in 1998. I enjoyed it and saw it many more times on the Fox Family Channel. RICHIE RICH'S CHRISTMAS WISH is one of the few movies where the sequel is better than the original movie. The movie is a lot funnier than the first RICHIE RICH movie was and I think it captures the spirit of the RICHIE RICH comics better than the first RICHIE RICH movie did. RICHIE RICH'S CHRISTMAS WISH is a great family movie, a hilarious comedy, and the best Christmas story ever told.
