Greedy

Greedy DVD CoverBACK COVER TEXT

Meet the McTeagues. They’ve come to stake a claim in their wealthy uncle’s will…only he’s not dead yet! Michael J. Fox, Kirk Douglas and Nancy Travis star in this wickedly funny comedy of heirs. As his family tries to get rich the old-fashioned way – groveling – Uncle Joe (Douglas) watches them elevate back-stabbing and brown-nosing to a whole new level. From the creators of Parenthood and City Slickers, GREEDY is proof positive that money can buy lots of laughs!

WEBMASTER’S REVIEW :: WARNING — POSSIBLE SPOILERS

Another DVD from Universal, this disk has just as little extra features and information as their DVD release of The Frighteners. All information, except the trailer, is textual and is not very informative amounting to watered-down filmographies.

The print quality is very good and the navigation is easy, but this can not save this movie from it’s extremely formulaic nature that went out of style in the early ’80’s. This is unfortunate because the cast is actually quite good and makes the film watchable when you’re not asking for much from your movie of the evening.
