That’s why his family is trying so very hard to get into his good books. They all want a piece of his empire. Unfortunately Uncle Joe isn’t as stupid as his family thinks he is. He can see that his family is only nice to him because they want his money. Along comes Daniel McTeague, a struggling bowler, imported from another city by his family, to put an end to this ridiculous situation. The fight won’t be easy, though, because the poor family has a little bit of competition – A beautiful nurse who takes care of Uncle Joe (and no doubt would love to take care of his bank account). Who gets all the money?
Plot: Meet the McTeagues. They’ve come to stake a claim in their wealthy uncle’s will… only he’s not dead yet!

I’ll Be Glad When You’re Dead You Rascal You
Greedy has taken some of the plot situations in the Paramount classic If I Had A Million and carried them to incredible heights. It has a whole string of good performances topped off by one of the last performances by Kirk Douglas before he had his stroke.
Kirk plays the Richard Bennett part here, the millionaire who doesn’t like almost all of his relatives, but gets a certain sadistic joy in seeing them perform like trained seals, trying to stay in his good graces. The only honest one of them is one of Ed Begley Jr.’s young sons who is just like that kid in If I Had a Million who started playing that record of I’ll Be Glad When You’re Dead You Rascal You.
Unlike Bennett, Douglas does not decide to drop parts of his fortune on eight random strangers. He just keeps putting his family through their paces until they decide to dig up Michael J. Fox, a nephew he actually liked when he was a kid.
Fox is a second string professional bowler who’s got a TV producer he’s involved with, Nancy Travis. The two of them invade Douglas’s three ring circus of relatives and get put through their paces also. All the family is against Douglas’s ‘nurse’ Olivia D’Abo who the family is afraid will get the whole inheritance.
Greedy is a nicely paced amusing comedy which I think most of us can identify with. I know I’ve had a relative or two I can’t stand either, but am forced to be nice to for a variety of reasons. The relatives are all greedy, but Douglas is one sadistic creep as well. I’d catch it the next time it’s on the tube.
The best bowling film made
Simply a great movie. Michael J. Fox trained with one of the greats, Johnny Petraglia for months in preparation for this movie. Fox went from a hack casual bowler to a respectable 175 average. Not good enough to actually throw the shots he was supposed to throw in the movie, though. The makers of Kingpin and Big Lebowski should have seen this one before making a mockery of the game. Any bowling lover should not miss this one.
