Looking good, Billy Ray!Louis (Dan Ayroyd) is rich. Billy Ray (Eddie Murphy) is not. Two brothers, Mortimer and Randolph Duke (Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy) decide to make a wager. They'll take Billy Ray off the street and turn him from a bum into a rich man, a successful businessman, overnight. In turn, they'll ruin Louis' life, making him a street bum, seeing if he decides to resort to a life of crime since he's lost everything.
Louis and Billy Ray figure it all out, then decide to work together to bring the Duke brothers down.
OK, it's a little weird, but it's still pretty funny.
This is probably one of the best roles for both Aykroyd and Murphy, plus you get a peek at Jamie Lee Curtis' headlights, if that's your sort of thing.
Directed by John Landis (pre-suckiness Landis, long before The Stupids), it's actually probably a movie everyone's seen, but few will admit to liking.Feeling good, Louis!
