An American comedy film directed by John Landis, starring Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy.
Eddie Murphy stars as a young homeless man who is mistakenly arrested and then bailed out by two billionaires who wish to use him as a pawn in their game. They make a bet that they can turn a him in to a successful member of the management team of the Fortune 500 company that made their family a member of New York’s elite social circle.
Upper-crust executive Louis Winthorpe III (Dan Aykroyd) and down-and-out hustler Billy Ray Valentine (Eddie Murphy) are the subjects of a bet by successful brokers Mortimer (Don Ameche) and Randolph Duke (Ralph Bellamy). An employee of the Dukes, Winthorpe is framed by the brothers for a crime he didn’t commit, with the siblings then installing the street-smart Valentine in his position. When Winthorpe and Valentine uncover the scheme, they set out to turn the tables on the Dukes.
