Director: John Landis Run Time: 118 min. Format: Digital Rating: R
Release Year: 1983
Starring: Dan Aykroyd, Don Ameche, Eddie Murphy, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ralph Bellamy
What happens when you combine the comic genius of Eddie Murphy with Dan Aykroyd and director John Landis? You get a timeless comedy classic laced with sidesplitting, satiric humor. Murphy stars as a small-time con artist who gets a chance to switch lives with Aykroyd's big-time stock market maven. But their reversal of fortunes is just a cruel joke perpetrated by two bored mega-rich brothers (Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy) as part of an idle bet. When the truth comes out, the consequences are sheer comedy gold!
