Taking Care of Business Reviews

September 19, 2017
A buddy movie rip-off of Trading Places.
December 4, 2016
Fun comedy with satire and a pleasant performance by John de Lancie.

This is a pretty stupid comedy in spots, with holes wide enough to drive trucks through, and director Arthur Hiller is as clunky as ever, but the cast is so funny and likable that they almost bring it off in spite of itself.

Lamely synthetic.

Brash Belushi and befuddled Grodin are perfect casting for yarn about a likable escaped con who assumes the identity of a stuffy, overworked ad agency exec.
January 26, 2006
The roles fit Belushi/Grodin like rubber, but the rest is second-rate.

Taking Care of Business plays it safe and boring.
March 29, 2003
Typically bland, light-on-laughs mix-up farce

A series lame jokes and clunky plot machinations that would strike as cynical were they not so obviously desperate.

It's also unexpectedly likeable, thanks to the high-spirited performances of stars James Belushi and Charles Grodin, under the relaxed direction by Arthur Hiller.

This one is as predictable as sunrise and as stale as bedpost gum.

Oh, what a couple of seasoned stars can do with a formula.
