Synopsis: Mel Brooks moves from genre parody to social satire in this tale of a greedy billionaire (played by Brooks himself) who bets another tycoon that he can live for a month on the streets without a penny. Brooks the actor lives among the homeless of Los Angeles without his usual resources and comforts, and Brooks the director uses this premise for moments of both reliably side-splitting comedy and genuine sweetness.
