Switcheroo: Trading Places

Dan Ackroyd, Eddie Murphy, Don Ameche, and Jamie Lee Curtis star in this totally 80's fun flick. Louis Winthorp (Ackroyd) is a successful businessman with a great job, a great home, and a fiancee. Billy Ray Valentine (Murphy) is a con man who bumps into Winthorp and is arrested on account of assault, robbery, and refusal of arrest. Then, the two brothers who run the company that Winthorp works at (Ralph Bellamy and Ameche) bet that they can turn Valentine into what Winthorp is and the same for Winthorp. The bet goes wild, and sets off a chain of events that are hysterical. A great movie for fun, featuring appearances by Al Franken and James Belushi. Wild, funny, and smart. B+
