Richie Rich's Christmas Wish is a heartwarming Christmas movie released in 1998. The star-studded cast includes David Gallagher, Eugene Levy, Keene Curtis, and Jake Richardson. This movie is the sequel to the 1994 movie 'Richie Rich.' This film follows Richie Rich, the richest boy in the world, who is faced with a dilemma when his parents are away for Christmas, and he is left under the care of his evil cousins.

As Christmas approaches, Richie's parents, Richard and Regina Rich, travel to Europe for their business. Richie must stay back in the family mansion which is decorated with a Christmas theme. His parents trusted him to take care of the house and the amazing Christmas decorations they have put up, but they had no idea that his evil cousins, Reggie and Pee-Wee, would be coming over for an unannounced visit. Reggie and Pee-Wee are envious of Richie's wealth and want to steal the family fortune.

Richie is devastated when he learns that his parents won't be home for Christmas. He confides to his friend, Professor Keenbean, that he wishes he were a normal kid with a normal family. The professor gifts him a wishing machine, and Richie makes a wish that he could have a normal family for Christmas. The machine grants his wish, but Richie soon realizes that his new family is not what he had hoped for.

Meanwhile, Reggie and Pee-Wee try to find the code to the family safe that contains the key to unlock the Rich family fortune. They try to make Richie give them the code by framing him for painting the side of the mansion. However, this plan does not succeed as Richie makes new friends who help him out of trouble.

As Richie's wishes come to life, he learns that the perfect family that he had always wished for may not be all that perfect. He realizes that true happiness is not in material possessions, but in love and kindness. He learns to appreciate the Christmas spirit and the importance of family. With his friends, Richie sets out to save the family fortune from his evil cousins and make sure that his parents return home to find everything just as they left it.

The movie is a delightful combination of humor, adventure, and the spirit of Christmas. Fans of the original Richie Rich movie will appreciate the continuation and the new characters that are introduced. The cast is brilliant with David Gallagher in the lead, portraying Richie Rich brilliantly. Eugene Levy and Keene Curtis, who play the characters of Professor Keenbean and Herbert Cadbury, respectively, add to the comedy and the warm-heartedness of the movie.
