It's urban warfare ahoy in this classic tale of girl gangs on the rampage. Directed by exploitation supremo Jack Hill ('Foxy Brown', 'The Swinging Cheerleaders'), it tells the tale of split allegiances within the Dagger Debs, and features amongst its numerous teenage hellcats, a group of dangerous political revolutionaries who read Chairman Mao like the rest of the world reads Harry Potter.

This is a fun movie, and while the technology is dated, it does translate to the present day. Imagine your whole world was dictated by your calendar, contacts etc, oh, just a moment it is, except instead of your ipod, you have a book that rules your life. In this movie James Belushi takes on someone else's life after finding his filo-fax. Lot's of laughs throughout as the owner just misses the meetings James B attends with entertaining results. One of his best, just behind K-9.

Jimmy Dworski {James Belushi} has two days to go before his release from prison {he's a car thief you see}. Upon hearing a contest on the radio to win two tickets to see the Chicago Cubs in the World Series, he promptly phones in a wins the tickets. But after unsuccessfully haggling with the vengeful warden {Hector Elizondo} for early release, Jimmy breaks out of the big house and stumbles upon the treasured Filofax of advertisement executive Spencer Barnes {Charles Grodin}. As Spencer stumbles around a broken man without his Filofax, Jimmy starts to live the high life as Spencer Barnes.

Well it's not really an out and out buddy movie till the last quarter, something that some writers have failed to mention. The preceding three quarters of the film follows the two role switch protagonists as they go about their merry/miserable ways respectively. Sounds like Trading Places eh? Well yes, that's because it is really. Here in lies the problem with Taking Care Of Business {AKA Filofax}, it's been done far better before and director Arthur Hiller and writers Jill Mazursky/J.J. Abrams either hadn't the nous, or the need, to at least instill some much needed deviation from the formula of such movies. So in the pantheon of role swap comedies, Taking Care Of Business is pretty much little league. So with that in mind it's something of an unexpected surprise to find it's actually very likable, thanks to the spirited turns offered up by Belushi & Grodin.

Belushi here was on the back of buddy buddy comedies Red Heat & K-9, which, like or loath them,? Garnered a cult fan base and showed Belushi to have an appealing comedic charm that people could warm too.

It's a typical 80's/90's comedy - It has Charles Grodin & Belushi - what more do you need? It beats modern rubbish like the hangover in my view but I guess I am of THAT AGE! Buy it if you own any John Hughes/Howard Deutch films like The Great Outdoors or Uncle Buck - not exactly like those films but it is of that time. Enjoyable fluff.
