It's satiric and at times mildly funny, but there just isn't enough meat on the bone. Will Ferrell is an acquired taste that I just haven't acquired. He needs to have a funny supporting cast and he has a horribly miscast supporting staff.There's nobody in this film that's even remotely likable and the speeches with music behind them are over the top but the laughs just never came other then a giggle or two.

Russell G (de) wrote: A great comedy does not necessarily have to overwhelm you with hilarity. Sometimes they can make a statement or make you think. I do not ask all comedies to do this but when they combine substance, sentiment, and humor, it is a special thing. Trading Places is one of those movies. It is a great comedy with the backbone of a good story and fully developed set of characters. The plot involves two old bond trading tyrants debating if people circumstances in life are more a result of genetic nature or environmental nurturing. For the wager of just one dollar, they arrange an elaborate swap of a poor black man living on the streets begging for money with a successful but spoiled educated white businessman. The result is two funny yet insightful fish out of water situations. Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd are excellent playing the two confused men involved in the swap. Both have keen acting and comedic talents. They become their characters without going too far or distracting from the story and its humorous situations. Jamie Lee Curtis and Denholm Elliott are valuable in their supporting roles. Their characters give a sounding board to develop the two main characters in an organic way. The comedy is light, but it works in enough humor to keep it moving. Warm emotions and thoughtful writing sets it above most comedies. There are plenty of role switching comedies, but this on stands above others. The acting and characters elevate this to a memorable movie with heart, humor, and meaning.
