Twelve Days of Questionable Xmas #3 – Trading Places

The 80’s produced a number of terrible, horrible, no good, very bad things. Movies though, comedies especially, were not one of them. For this entry into our look at questionable Christmas movies, we have Trading Places starring Dan Akroyd and Eddie Murphy. Akroyd is rich, Murphy is poor, and they trade places. There isn’t too much set up necessary with a film like this. You simply take two very funny people, along with very funny character actors and Jaime Lee Curtis’ nipples (they are on in this film), turn the cameras on and go. That’s not to say that there isn’t more going on in the film. Rather, it’s a film that can be watched multiple ways, including as a Christmas movie. I often forget how funny this one really is which is not a lead I suggest you take. Instead, give it a watch and buy OJ!
