Storyline

Plot Summary

Brewster is a minor league baseball player. Unknown to him, he had a (recently deceased) rich relative. In order to test if Brewster knows the value of money, he is given the task of disposing of $30m in 30 days. Brewster isn't allowed to have any assets to show for the $30m or waste the money in any way. If successful, Brewster gets to inherit $300m. The biggest problem of all however, is that Brewster can't tell anyone what he's doing, so everyone thinks he's crazy. Add to this the fact that if he fails, two scheming trustees will get their hands on the money, Brewster's task is not an easy one. Written by Rob Hartill

Trivia A couple of times in the movie, a train passes through the outfield of the stadium where the Bulls play. This was actually something common in the 1930s and 1940s at ball parks used by teams in the Texas leagues. See more »
Goofs It is often claimed that by using the rare postage stamp to mail a postcard Monty violated the clause of the will forbidding destruction of inherently valuable property. However, as Monty was using the stamp for its originally intended purpose this would not go against the terms of the will. See more »

Quotes Spike Nolan: Monty, this is Hackensack, NJ. No scout comes here, you understand that. Trains are going through the outfield right now. But you strike this guy out, I'll take you with me tonight and get you drunk, that's a promise.
