Trading Places

Wonderfully hilarious comedy about two rich dudes, Randolph and Mortimer, placing a bet that you can't change a low-down criminal for the better by turning him into a rich man and vice versa. So they decide to pick on rich snob, Dan Aykroyd, frame him for a hideous crime and pay everyone off in his former life to not let him back in leaving Aykroyd suffering in poverty. Eddie Murphy, a criminal from the ghetto, is given Aykroyd's house, job and money. Can all this change a man's personality? An excellent comedy, a must for all! Strong comedic performances comes from the all-star cast.
