About the Movie
The fun begins when the rich and greedy Duke Brothers (Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy) wager a bet over whether born loser Valentine (Eddie Murphy) could become as successful as the priggish Winthorpe (Dan Akroyd) if circumstances were reversed. The Dukes have the money to make this happen, but when Valentine and Winthorpe catch on they arrange for a rich and riotous payback!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [A] shrewd but very likable movie.
Fresh: Trading Places also makes Eddie Murphy a force to be reckoned with.
Fresh: Trading Places is a light romp geared up by the schtick shifted by Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy.
Fresh: What's most visible in the movie is the engaging acting. Murphy and Aykroyd are perfect foils for each other.
Beef Jerky Time!!!
"Looking good Billy Ray." "Feeling Good Luis." and of course a full frontal shot of Jamie Lee Curtis's Breast. X-mas time is here my friends.
'You sound like my bookie!'
Poignant look at greed not in ballance with fear in the financial world. Murphy's performance is effortless. I watch this every x-mas. YEP!
This movie was great for it's time. To watch the new talent (Eddie Murphy) and a seasoned vet(Dan Akroyd) have such great chemistry not to mention Jamie Lee topless, this movie could not loose. I know it is old but i can watch it over and over again
