Wang Duo Yu is a minor league football Goalkeeper. Unknown to him, he had a (recently deceased) rich grandfather. In order to test if Wang knows the value of money, he is given the task of disposing of 1 billion yuan in 30 days. Wang has to spent it legally and isn't allowed to have any assets to show for it at the end of the task. If Wang is successful, he gets to inherit his Grand Uncle's 30 billion yuan worth of assets. The biggest problem of all however, is that Wang is not allowed to tell anyone about the task, which create a lot of confusions to the people around him. He is also faced with the evil trustee company's bosses who desperately need him to fail in order to control the management of this huge assets.
Brewster's Millions was itself based on the 1902 book of the same name by American author George Barr McCutcheon and Hello Mr Billionaire becomes the 13th cinematic adaptation.
Brewster is a minor league baseball player. Unknown to him, he had a (recently deceased) rich relative. In order to test if Brewster knows the value of money, he is given the task of disposing of $30m in 30 days. Brewster isn't allowed to have any assets to show for the $30m or waste the money in any way. If successful, Brewster gets to inherit $300m. The biggest problem of all however, is that Brewster can't tell anyone what he's doing, so everyone thinks he's crazy. Add to this the fact that if he fails, two scheming trustees will get their hands on the money, Brewster's task is not an easy one.
