Reviews
Mine: A really good comedy. Suffers from endless TV showings. Eddie Murphies best film. Lots of fun, I have just seen it to often.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Fine cast breathes life into time-worn comedy premise (remember those Three Stooges shorts?) testing heredity vs. environment by switching a "have'" (preppie Aykroyd) and a "have-not" (street hustler Murphy). Murphy, in his second film, is a comic powerhouse, and makes up for director Landis' indulgences--like a subplot involving a horny gorilla.
