      Trading Places, directed by John Landis is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America. The original release date was June 8, 1983 for United States audience. This movie falls in the genre of Comedy and stars Dan Aykroyd as Louis Winthorpe III, Eddie Murphy as Billy Ray Valentine, Don Ameche as Mortimer Duke, Ralph Bellamy as Randolph Duke, Denholm Elliot as

      Coleman and Jamie Lee Curtis as Ophelia.

      The Duke brothers place a bet with each other stating that they can trade the lives of two completely opposite people and turn their lives around in the process. A bet of $1 (One Dollar) was the wager. The lives of the two individuals they plan to wreck are those of a wallstreet investor named Lious and a street con artist named Billy.

      The plan is under way, the lives of the two have been switched and the bet is in full force. The Duke brothers have done it again…those with the money don’t know what to do with their time. LOL!

      As things continue, Lious and Billy come to realise that they have been made fools of my the Duke brothers,

      and they decide to return the favor. They plot to get filthy rich while making the Dukes poor all at one go. The play the stock market to their advantage and they do just as they had planned to do. Now the brothers Duke are in the poor house and their is nothing they can do about it.

      This movie just goes to show

      that ‘what goes around, comes back around’. So be careful how you treat others and do unto others as you would like them to do unto you. This is a very strong moral principle.

      This is a smashing comedy, a fabulous and intriguing look into the lives of the stock industry and a very ingenius movie. A great watch at any time what-so-ever. Enjoy!
