Zum Teufel mit den Kohlen: Directed by Walter Hill. With Richard Pryor, John Candy, Lonette McKee, Stephen Collins. A minor league baseball player has to spend $30 million in thirty days, in order to inherit $300 million. However, he’s not allowed to own any assets, destroy the money, gift it, give it to charity or tell anyone about the deal.
“In one of his all time best film performances, Richard Pryor portrays Montgomery Brewster, the pitcher for a minor league baseball team in New Jersey. His wealthy uncle dies and leaves him a $300 million inheritance….but thereu0026#39;s a catch. In order to get it, he must spend $30 million in 30 days. It might sound simple enough but a position in the New York stock market as well as a phony election campaign for mayor sometimes keep bringing spent money back to him. Hilarious complications ensue as Pryor attempts to spend all of the money and keep it spent without getting any of it back. Pryor shines in a fine character role thatu0026#39;s away from his usual con man typecasting.”
