hurt rich people is by turning them into poor people.”

Trading Places

About: Founders Mortimer (Don Ameche) and Randolph (Ralph Bellamy) of Duke & Duke Commodity Brokers debate nature vs. nurture with a real life experiment: frame their executive Louis Winthorpe III (Dan Aykroyd) for various crimes and rescue the panhandling Billy Ray Valentine (Eddie Murphy) from both jail and poverty. With nurture winning the day, the Dukes hope to dump Valentine and forget about Winthorpe, but the displaced duo have other plans. Future trades look to be made!
