Trading Places (1983) Dir. John Landis Stream: PARAMOUNT+

Trading Places trailer

Two callous millionaire brothers conspire to switch the fortunes of a snobbish investor and a wily street con artist, owing to a bet.

It’s one of the first of the BIG Christmas movies on the countdown. A 80s classic starring two actors in Eddie Murphy and Dan Akroyd who were hitting the top of their comedic games here. Add in a sultry performance from the ever wonderful Jamie Lee Curtis and Mr Dependable Denholm Elliot and you have a bone fide Christmas hit.

From the opening with Murphy as a homeless verteran to New Years on the train with a rather amourous gorilla, there are simply too many great moments to pick one. So time to gear up and get on board once more, or if you’ve never seen it, what better a time than day 5 of the Screen One Christmas Movie Countdown?
