On today’s show I discuss the comedy film classic, Trading Places. I begin the show talking about the meteoric rise of Eddie Murphy and what a revelation he was to audiences in the eighties. After praising Eddie for a while I move onto talking about the film itself.
I discuss the films writers, producers, and stars. I explain the origin of one of my favorite lines from the film and even try to explain exactly what was going on at the end of the film. It’s a little confusing, but stick with me, I think I get through it okay.
Trading Places is an amazing comedy. The people behind it were remarkable and they all came together at the height of their talents. The result is one of the best comedy films of the eighties.
