Overview
From fortune 500... to fortune's fool! Acclaimed actor/writer/director and comedy legend, Mel Brooks (Young Frankenstein) takes his hilarious brand of comic lunacy to the streets-literally-with this warmhearted comedy about a rich man who wins back his humanity... by losing everything else he's got! Multi-billionaire Goddard Bold (Brooks) has just made a deal that will change his life. In order to win the right to build over a ghetto, Bolt must survive on its impoverished streets penniless for 30 days. But when this well-to-do man discovers what its like to do without, it'll take the charity of a feisty bag lady (Leslie Ann Warren, Cop) and a newly found appreciation for the best things in life to show him the true meaning of being "filthy rich". The hilarious cast includes comedy greats Jeffrey Tambor (TV's Arrested Development), Stuart Pankin (Arachnophobia), Howard Morris (High Anxiety), Rudy De Luca (Silent Movie) and Billy Barty (Foul Play).
