Trading Places Reviews

November 23, 2015
Trading Places is a comedy of unavoidable fits and starts.
April 2, 2008
Trading Places also makes Eddie Murphy a force to be reckoned with.
April 2, 2008
This 1983 film re-creates a screwball comedy format and then eliminates everything but the crudest audience-gratification elements; any incursions into the more morally complicated side of the genre are quickly curtailed.
April 2, 2008
Trading Places is a light romp geared up by the schtick shifted by Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy.
June 24, 2006
As a satire on the internecine savagery of fiscal doings under late Reaganite capitalism, the movie is not as biting as it thinks it is; but it's still the best hoot since Arthur.
October 23, 2004
What's most visible in the movie is the engaging acting. Murphy and Aykroyd are perfect foils for each other.
