Brewster's Millions is a comedy about a baseball player who inherits an unexpected sum of money. The story begins with Monty Brewster and his friend Spike being in jail without any means to post their bail. The bail is taken care of by a stranger who brings them to New York where Monty learns he has inherited money from a dead uncle. The inheritance comes with a strange condition. Monty can choose to take a sum of one million dollars and walk away, or try to get three hundred million dollars by spending thirty million in thirty days. Monty decides to go for all the money and receives his thirty million.

In order to dispose of the cash in a hurry, Monty enlists the help of his friends. He gives some money to Spike who decides to invest it. Meanwhile, Monty is buying everyone he knows lavish gifts to get rid of the cash. He also rents an expensive penthouse suite and employs a number of people to whom he pays outrageous salaries. The amount of money Monty spends needs to be carefully monitored, so the Law firm representing his uncle's estate hires a paralegal to follow Monty around. The paralegal is a beautiful young woman named Angela who Monty develops romantic feelings for.

While Monty is busy trying to get rid of the money as fast as he can, Spike thinks he is doing his friend a favor by making wise investments. As the clock ticks down Monty discovers he has actually accumulated more money due to Spike's investments. The effort on Monty's part to get rid of the money is hindered by a representative of the law firm. If Monty fails to meet the deadline, the money reverts back to the firm. As the days turn into hours before the deadline, the pressure is on as Monty tries every way possible to get rid of the last remaining sum of money.
