What happens when you combine the comic genius of Eddie Murphy with Dan Akroyd and director John Landis? You get a timeless comedy classic laced with sidesplitting, satiric humor. Murphy stars as a small-time con artist who gets a chance to switch lives with Akroyd's big-time stock market maven. But their reversal of fortunes is just a cruel joke perpetrated by two bored mega-rich brothers (Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy) as part of an idle bet. When the truth comes out...the consequences are sheer comedy gold!
