Richie Rich ★★½ 1994 (PG)

Yet another adaptation from the comics. Richie (Culkin), the world's richest boy, takes over the family business when his madcap parents Richard (Herrmann) and Regina (Ebersole) disappear thanks to the devious Laurence Van Dough (Larroquette). But there's kindly valet Cadbury (Hyde) and eccentric livein inventor Keenbean (McShane) to help Richie save the day. Some silliness but Culkin has clearly outgrown this type of kid role. Biltmore, the 8,000 acre Vanderbilt estate in Asheville, North Carolina, serves as the Rich family home. 94m/C VHS, DVD . Macaulay Culkin, John Larroquette, Edward Herrmann, Christine Ebersole, Jonathan Hyde, Michael McShane, Stephi Lineburg; Cameos: Reggie Jackson, Claudia Schiffer; D: Donald Petrie; W: Tom S. Parker, Jim Jennewein; C: Don Burgess; M: Alan Silvestri.
