Trading Places

The Late Show: Alt X-Mas

Friday, December 22 & Saturday, December 23

(1983) dir John Landis w/Dan Aykroyd, Eddie Murphy, Jamie Lee Curtis, Denholm Elliott, Ralph Bellamy, Don Ameche [116 min; DCP]
In John Landis’ blockbuster comedy, Dan Aykroyd stars as a coddled Philadelphia financier whose life is upended when his scheming bosses, the Duke Brothers, arrange for him to lose everything in order to settle a bet about nature vs. nurture. He soon finds unlikely allies in a hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold (Curtis) and the street hustler (Murphy) that the Dukes have tapped to take his place.

“Murphy and Aykroyd are perfect foils for each other.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“Trading Places is an updated Frank Capra with four-letter words, and I can think of no higher praise than that.” – Rex Reed, New York Observer

“Decades later, ‘Trading Places’ is still hilarious, with its cutting commentary on class and race in America (regrettably still topical), legendary comedic performances, and so much more.” – Diana Drumm, Indiewire
