Blank Check (1994) Movie Description:

1994's Blank Check, from Walt Disney Pictures, recounts a familiar story of a neglected 11-year old, gangsters, and mistaken identity. Preston, the 11-year old, finds himself in the middle of a botched underworld money exchange, and when he accepts a check (from a gangster) to cover the cost of his destroyed bicycle, the check is missing an amount. Ergo, "blank check."

With his newfound riches, the 11-year old goes on a spending spree, unaware that gangsters are hot on his trail. A bank teller slash FBI agent becomes involved, and Preston develops a huge crush on her and spends even more money trying to impress her.

Borrowing liberally from Home Alone and various other "kids-playing-grownup" films, Blank Check never really recreates the charm and uniqueness of the former film. The acting is mediocre, at best, and the storyline requires quite a bit of suspended belief.

Director Rupert Wainwright got his start as the writer-director for rapper MC Hammer's early 90s videos.
