Trading Places {For Annual Subscribers}

December 25, 2020

Scrooge Dan Aykroyd learns something about Christmas (and frozen orange juice commodities) after Trading Places with street beggar Eddie Murphy in Now Playing’s holiday gift to December Patrons.  Is this 1983 blockbuster uproarious because of the funny nature of these SNL stars? Or did director John Landis nurture the comedy by turning the decade’s obsession with yuppies and wealth into satirical targets?  And how well did Jamie Lee Curtis shed her Scream Queen image to make audiences howl with laughter?  Spend a little coin to help our show and find out.
