Uncle Joe is ageing. He's also a millionaire. That's why his family is trying so very hard to get into his good books. They all want a piece of his empire. Unfortunately Uncle Joe isn't as stupid as his family thinks he is. He can see that his family is only nice to him because they want his money. Along comes Daniel McTeague, a struggling bowler, imported from another city by his family, to put an end to this ridiculous situation. The fight won't be easy, though, because the poor family has a little bit of competition - A beautiful nurse who takes care of Uncle Joe (and no doubt would love to take care of his bank account). Who gets all the money?Written by

Almost at the end, when Danny is packing Uncle Joe's stuff in the hospital, he puts a bedpan in the bag and then takes it out. It's never explicitly shown (only heard off screen), but in the bedpan are a few of Uncle Joe's belongings, which Danny empties into the bag. Then he puts the now empty bedpan back on the table. He never meant to put the bedpan in the bag. He was merely to use it as a delivery device for the things that were in it. See more »
Danny, I love you and I believe in you. But isn't everything you're telling me a big crock of bubbling shit?

The movie opens with a lengthy black and white sequence of Jimmy Durante performing "Inka Dinka Doo" from the 1944 film Two Girls and A Sailor, while the pink credits roll. See more »
Greedy is a film you may have passed on Showtime, or glanced at in the TV Guide and thought, "never heard of it". To be honest, I can't recall its stint in the theaters either. However, on the recommendation of my father, I gave it a chance.
The interaction between all of the characters is terrific. Phil Hartman gives comic brilliance, mixed with wit and sarcasm in his usual way.
This movie has a lot of laugh out loud moments for people who are into clever comedy with a slightly twisted mind. It is cemented in my comedy top 5 with Stripes, Planes Trains and Automobiles, Ferris Buellers Day Off, and Ridgemont. Highly recommended! 9/10
