Richie Rich

Posted on

The casting of Hollywood’s $8 million kid as comicdom’s poor little rich boy was the best investment the filmmakers made in the trite comedy Richie Rich, since young Macaulay Culkin fans will likely seek out the video despite Mac’s unremarkable performance. Unfortunately, the film so lovingly displays Richie’s treasures (including his own McDonald’s and his personal baseball coach, Reggie Jackson) that kids may come away with a slightly skewed view: Friends are important, but nothing beats buddies with bucks.
