A great comedy, one of my all time favourites
Classic movie.Worth a watch.
One of Eddies finest roles I loved it.
The acting could be better, but, you can't go past this rip snorter! I just love the stockmarket. This movie inspired me heaps.
I knew I was in for a hilarious (return) screwball ride when the opening credits were rocked by Mozart’s overture “The Marriage of Figaro”. Having watched a few comedies of manners lately, this 26 year old one had the most chortle power. Eddie Murphy as Billy Ray Valentine sparkles as a street-smart hustler, a puffed-up gentleman, and a shrewd commodies broker. So do Dan Aykroyd as stuck-up Louis Winthorpe III, Jamie Lee Curtis’s big hearted prostitute, Denholm Elliott’s droll manservant, and Ralph Bellemy and Don Amache as the gleefully manipulative and villainous Duke brothers. The gay gorilla bit was a clichéd variation that I didn’t especially like and moral issues were ignored but overall TP tickled my fancy. Four and a half stars.
A classic movie with a great cast. Really shows the best of Jamie Lee Curtis(!). Don't forget to watch for the link to the Dukes in Murphy's movie "Coming to America"
great cast, funny movie, all time classic
The story is weak,but the cast excelent and cohesing,playing well. Entertaining ,if you have some time to spare on trivia.
With so many stars in this movie you could be suspicious that the producers were compensating for shortcomings elsewhere. But director John Landis has turned what was a very good concept and plot into a great movie and made good use of the all-star cast. Eddie Murphy was well cast in this role, but didn't become overbearing like in other movies. Fine performances from Dan Aykroyd, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Ameche, Ralph Bellamy and Denholm Elliott kept Murphy in check. It's a classic and very funny.
BEST MOVIE U BETA WATCH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
Forget that it's Eddie Murphy, this was made when he was at his peak talent wise. Great film.
