The "nature-nurture" theory that motivated so many Three Stooges comedies is the basis of John Landis's hit comedy. The fabulously wealthy but morally bankrupt Duke brothers (Ralph Bellamy and Don Ameche) make a one-dollar bet over heredity vs. environment. Curious as to what might happen if different lifestyles were reversed, they arrange for impoverished street hustler Billy Ray Valentine (Eddie Murphy) to be placed in the lap of luxury and trained for a cushy career in commodities brokerage. Simultaneously, they set about to reduce aristocratic yuppie Louis Winthorpe III (Dan Aykroyd to poverty and disgrace, hiring a prostitute (Jamie Lee Curtis) to hasten his downfall. When Billy Ray figures out that the brothers intend to dump him back on the streets once their experiment is complete, he seeks out Winthorpe, and together the pauper-turned-prince and prince-turned-pauper plot an uproarious revenge. With the good-hearted prostitute and Winthorpe's faithful butler (Denholm Elliott) as their accomplices, they set about to hit the brothers where it really hurts: in the pocketbook.

Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The role reversal premise was an old one, even if it was refreshed by casting a black actor and a white actor in the lead roles. But Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd were sure-fire box-office bets, and the film helped Murphy take another step up the ladder of comic stardom. It was one of the choicest film roles for Aykroyd, whose career has had its share of dim parts, and director John Landis knew how to mix the ingredients into box-office gold. The supporting performance of veterans Ralph Bellamy, Don Ameche, and Denholm Elliott give the comedy surprising depth.
