      Clean enough for any age-no foul language or actions-but children under 13 won't get the humor and would have trouble following the plot. Funny if a bit "Brit"

          Comments about Hot Millions (MOD):

          Maggie Smith is my current focus for a retrospective look at her films, and in seeking them out I came across this absolute little gem of a film with her in her younger years. She plays a not too bright but very resourceful woman who is Peter Ustinov's equal in every way in this film, matching his wit, subtle comic genius and likeability at every turn. The film held my interest throughout on the strength of the story and fine skills of the entire cast, and in fact it was a pleasure to see Bob Newhart get through his lines without the off-putting stutter he affected later in his career, and Karl Malden played his part with just the right restraint.

            I love Maggie Smith, and so I was predisposed to love this movie. This is one of her funniest movies. Peter Ustinov wrote, produced, and acts opposite Maggie. It's a superb and hilarious performance by them both.

                  DVDs are sooooo much better than VHS. This movie NEVER shows up on TV or CABLE. A must buy!

                        Peter Ustinov was one of the great character actors. On the rare occasions like this one where he could not only take the lead, but do the writing, he created a masterpiece. Maggie Smith is the perfect love interest and makes their relationship entirely believable. The wry wit, the political and corporate jibes are subtle and perfectly on target. And Ustinov's look of ecstasy when Maggie begins to play the flute is absolutely enchanting. It is a thrill to have this classic available again.

                          This is a wonderful film, with engaging performances by the always-great Peter Ustinov and Maggie Smith, funny lines, situations and twists, and a great, rousing musical score to boot! Even though the computer equipment is antiquated by today's standards, the story and performances more than make up for it, and all you have to do is think of it as what it is: a period peice, and the problem just goes away!
