Summary
Which way is up? (R): The story of an orange picker who accidentally becomes a union hero and leaves his wife and family at home while he seeks work in Los Angeles where he finds a new woman and starts a second family. Brewster's millions (PG): Montgomery Brewster is a down-and-out baseball player who discovers that he is the only living relative of an eccentric multimillionaire. Monty stands to inherit $300 million, but only if he can spend $30 million in a single month without acquiring any assets. If he fails, it's back to zero again. Car Wash (PG): An irreverent but affectionate look at a typical day in a Los Angeles car wash. Bustin' loose (R): A misanthropic ex-con helps the director of a bankrupt school for emotionally disturbed children transport 8 of the students from Philadelphia to Oregon, despite the law, the Ku Klux Klan and each other
