Millions is a heartwarming story of two little boys, faith, miracles… and lots of money. Starting anew after the death of their mother, 9-year-old Anthony is ever practical, while his 7- year-old brother Damian uses imagination, fantasy, and faith to make sense of his confusing world. When a suitcase full of money falls out of the sky at Damian’s feet, it sets the boys on the adventure of a lifetime that leads them to realize that true wealth has nothing to do with money.
I wasn’t expecting much from this film but I was pleasantly surprised. I find the English humor in the film very funny at times even though it took me a bit to understand the accents. Damian is so funny because he attends the School of the Saints and “sees” Saints all the time. He even has conversations with them and these encounters tend to be some of the funniest parts of the film. Damian is a good boy who believes God sent him this big bag of money. He tells his brother and then the fun begins. His brother uses the money for his own gain, but Damian is intent on using the money to help the poor. Many funny scenes involve the brothers handing out money. There is one questionable scene where the brothers are looking at women in bras on the Internet. There was no real need or reason to include this scene in the film, but it is one of the reasons why it receives a PG rating. I can’t recommend this film for families due to one profanity. I wish the producer would not have included it because then Dove could have awarded Millions the Dove Seal. It’s a shame.
