Great comedy from the early 1980s about a poor but smart street hustler Billy Ray Valentine (Eddie Murphy) and a rich, entitled stock broker Louis Winthorpe (Dan Ackroyd) who are made to swap lives, as part of an elaborate bet between two elderly amoral (Duke) brothers, who own the brokerage firm at which Ackroyd works. When they realise they have both been the victims of a private bet, Valentine and Winthorpe join forces to take revenge.......
It has a great cast, which also includes Ralph Bellamy and Don Ameche (as the Duke brothers), Denholm Elliot (as the Butler) the fabulous Jamie Lee Curtis, playing Ackroyd's kind-hearted saviour.

Really good fun.

A Classic, though very 1980s in its style and content. Enjoyable from start to finish

Blu-ray review. The blu-ray is an improvement over the DVD and you get some special features that weren't on the DVD (at least not the DVD I had). So if this film is one of your favourites it's worth upgrading to the blu-ray.

An eighties classic that is utterly timeless and yet a child of its times.

great characters throughout, dubious morality in story

Wanted a movie for a Friday night-in and this was recommended on The Guardian.

Really glad we picked this up.

There is some nudity that seemed a little out of place in an 80's comedy.

Otherwise well worth the fiver.
