Five Great Christmas Movies #4: Trading Places

Before Beverly Hills Cop, before Coming to America, and WAY before Donkey and the fat suits (is that a genre now? Young black actor dressed as fat old woman? If so, I do not love it) Eddie Murphy was Billy Ray Valentine in Trading Places.

(okay, and how cute was Dan Aykroyd?! Totally cute, right?)

Ably assisted by Dan Aykroyd as Every Boy My Grandparents Ever Wanted Me To Marry and Jamie Lee Curtis –in a milkmaid costume! this is not for the kiddies but one of the funniest, wryest films of the 80’s, Christmas or not.

    Dan Akroyd and Tim Robbins (newly single!) are my crushes for life. I have loved them since I can remember loving. My husband is kind of a mix of both of them in the look department. Yay for me!

    Explain to them how Elivs has been using it for years and he’s not dead yet. Most alternative medicine is a scam. Sugar pills give you the same placebo effect and can do less harm.
