About the Movie

James Belushi is Jimmy Dworski, a happy-go-lucky convict who breaks out of prison and finally gets a life ... somebody else's! When Dworski finds the daily planner book that literally runs the life of ultra-organized executive Spencer Barnes (Charles Grodin), all hell breaks loose! With newfound cash, credit cards, and the keys to a Malibu mansion, the imposter Dworski embarks on an all-expense-paid trip to "Easy Street" while posing as the high-powered Barnes. Meanwhile, Spencer's life is turned upside down as he hunts through the jungles of Los Angeles for his beloved book! When these oddball opposites finally meet, it's a comedic collision you won't soon forget!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Taking Care of Business plays it safe and boring. – Caryn James, New York Times, May 21, 2013

Rotten: Lamely synthetic. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, May 21, 2013

Rotten: This one is as predictable as sunrise and as stale as bedpost gum. – Rita Kempley, Washington Post, May 21, 2013

Rotten: This is a pretty stupid comedy in spots, with holes wide enough to drive trucks through, and director Arthur Hiller is as clunky as ever, but the cast is so funny and likable that they almost bring it off in spite of itself. – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, May 21, 2013
