The Freshman

Matthew Broderick plays a film student who ventures into New York City for the first time and promptly has his luggage and most of his possessions stolen from him. It seems rather hopeless for poor Broderick for a while until he notices the thief walking down the street before running wildly after him. He catches up with a thief who apparently gambled Broderick's life savings away, but he is offered a very high paying but risky job. It's a very entertaining comedy that also stars Marlon Brando who spoofs his own "Godfather" character. I recommend it!
