mark watson e gordon bloomfeld sono due amici per la pelle; entrambi vivono a los angeles e appartengono a famiglie benestanti. ambedue vengono accettati nell'universita' di harvard, facolta' di legge; ma per mark cominciano i guai: infatti il padre, salutista convinto ed un po' strambo, decide di tagliargli i viveri. i tre anni di universita' dovra' pagarseli da solo: e qui sta il dramma, poiche' il giovanotto non ha alcuna risorsa finanziaria. tenta di farsi fare prestiti, ma nessuno gli fa credito. allora escogita un piano diabolico. si finge negro, grazie a pillole sperimentali per stimolare l'abbronzatura, per poter usufruire di una borsa di studio per giovani di colore. riesce ad entrare ad harvard con l'amico gordon, il quale e' preoccupato per le conseguenze del gesto un po' folle di mark. quest'ultimo si inserisce nella vita accademica con entusiasmo con la sua pelle scura di cui sembra orgoglioso: frequenta le lezioni del professor banks, anch'egli negro; si infatua della collega di corso, sarah walker di pelle scura, molto carina e studiosa; desta perplessita' ed invidia nei due compagni lisa e brad; si conquista man mano la simpatia dei compagni sia bianchi sia negri. si innamora di lui la bionda e viziata whitney dunbar, figlia del proprietario della casa che mark e gordon occupano; la ragazza e' graziosa ma un po' scervellata, poiche' a lei interessano tutti i giovanotti di razza differente dalla sua. mark intanto si rende conto che il suo sentimento per sarah diventa sempre piu' saldo: conosce la famiglia di lei, il figlioletto della giovane, george, avuto da uno sfortunato matrimonio. la sua abnegazione per lo studio e per il lavoro la rendono sempre piu' cara a mark. questi viene a sapere alla fine che proprio lui, col suo imbroglio, ha sottratto la borsa di studio a sarah, alla quale spettava per giusti motivi. allora decide di confessare tutto alla

I've nothing to add to the Amazon synopsis above, which outlines the film's plot, but here's some technical details about the Boulevard Entertainment 2010 DVD release which are worth noting:

The DVD region for the disc is 0, so it should play on any DVD player. The format is NTSC. There are no subtitles included. The DVD transfer is pretty good. The artwork is a bit on the cheap side, with the screen shots on the back cover being of poor quality.

For a budget DVD release like this, I was impressed with the few extras that are included, as there are usually none at all. You get the original teaser trailer (approx. 1 minute long), the longer full-length theatrical trailer (approx. 2 minutes long), and a commentary track on the film itself from the director, Steve Miner, and the main star, C. Thomas Howell.

For its current Amazon price of £2.19, it's a bargain not to be passed up for fans of 80s film.

Had this film been made in current times it would probably have caused a racism storm, however this film should be enjoyed by all and accepted in the comedy manor that was intended. If actors such as the great James Earl Jones saw the funny side then so should everyone.
This is pure comedy genius by all involved and i would highly recomend that it should be classed as a must see film. If you're looking for a great movie that can be enjoyed by everyone then this is it.

I saw this when it came out in 86 and loved it.

Then recently all of a sudden I had strong desire to watch it again...

So glad I bought it, very funny film. High spirits.

Most likely wont regret buying this, one of those classics for the DVD library.

If you ignore your anxieties about political correctness this is actually a very funny film poking fun at the way white people view black people,however it is somewhat dated now.The cast is excellent and includes actors that went on to bigger and better things such as Julia Louis Dreyfuss and Leslie Nielsen.
There are some legendary artists on the soundtrack as well including Isaac Hayes,Joan Armatrading,Brian Wilson and Sly Stone.

whilst i was sceptical at first this film turned out to be one of the funniest films i have ever seen. based on the most unlikely premise that overdosing on 'suntan pills' (with very little explanation of how these came about) can make a white man black it then turns into a comedy of errors that is highly enjoyable. of course at the end our man has learnt that black folks aren't quite as one dimensional as he thought plus he picks up some tasty black girl in the process, plus she's a single mum so he is quids in. i can recommend this film to everyone.

Quality! I have loved this film for years and have watched it hundreds of times. All my friends love it, my mum loves it, sadly my nan died in 1985 so never got a chance to see it. It's not overly PC but all the jokes are harmless. If you have never seen Soul Man and bark on about how funny Anchorman, Old School, Ferris's Day Off and Office Space are then you have no excuse for not seeing this film. It's the nuts.

It doesn't get much more non-pc than this! Interesting 80s period piece.

I saw this movie when it first came out and thought it was just hysterical so I just had to get it when It came out on DVD. Please to say all though it is dated it is still an enjoyable movie. All I can say is that I just love this movie! The little kid is just soo cute!!
