Blank Check is a comedy movie from the year 1994 that follows the story of an eleven-year-old boy named Preston Waters, played by Brian Bonsall. Preston is tired of being treated like a child by his family, friends, and schoolmates. One day, while riding his bike, he accidentally crashes into a wealthy criminal named Quigley, who is on the run from the police. In gratitude for not reporting him to the authorities, Quigley gives Preston a blank check, which he fills out for $1 million.

Preston, ecstatic about his newfound wealth, goes to the bank to cash the check. At the bank, he meets Tasha, a pretty bank teller who helps him open a checking account and gives him a credit card. Preston then goes on a spending spree, buying everything he ever wanted, including a mansion, a limousine, and a plethora of toys and gadgets. However, he soon realizes that having money does not solve all his problems.

Things take a turn for the worse when Quigley starts extorting money from Preston, demanding a portion of his fortune in exchange for not revealing his true identity to the police. Preston seeks the help of a computer expert named Henry, played by Miguel Ferrer, who helps him track down Quigley's whereabouts and gather evidence against him. Meanwhile, Preston's parents and the police are trying to figure out where he got all his money from, suspecting him of being involved in illegal activities.

As the story progresses, Preston learns the value of money and the importance of family and friendships. He also learns to stand up for himself and fight for what is right. With the help of his new friends, including Tasha, Henry, and a group of mischievous kids, Preston faces Quigley and his goons in a thrilling showdown that will keep the audience on the edge of their seats.

Blank Check is a fun and entertaining movie that will appeal to both kids and adults. The movie's humor is derived from the many hilarious situations that Preston finds himself in because of his wealth. The performances of the cast are excellent, especially Brian Bonsall, who captures the innocence and naivete of his character perfectly. Karen Duffy and James Rebhorn are also great as Preston's older sister and father, respectively.

The movie's soundtrack is also noteworthy, featuring popular songs from the early '90s, including Wild Thing by Tone Loc and Jump by Kris Kross. The movie's direction by Rupert Wainwright is solid, and the special effects, especially in the action scenes, are impressive.

In conclusion, Blank Check is a lighthearted and enjoyable movie that will leave a smile on your face.
