Monty stands to inherit $300 million, but only if he can spend $30 million in a single month without acquiring and assets .If he fails, it s back to zero again. On hand to help Pryor to spend his loot are John Candy, Lonette McKee and Stephen Collins. This outrageous spree-for-all is directed by Walker Hill and Produced by Lawrence Gordon and Joel Silver, with a screenplay by the team that wrote Trading Places.
