Eddie Murphy plays a homeless con artist who becomes a Wall Street robber baron. The turnabout begins with an argument between super-rich siblings, played by Ralph Bellamy and Don Ameche: Are captains of industry, they wonder, born or made? To settle the issue, they construct a cruel experiment in social Darwinism. Preppie commodities trader Dan Aykroyd (perfectly cast) is stripped of all his worldly goods and expelled from the firm, and Murphy\'s smelly derelict is appointed to take his place, graduating to tailored suits and a world-class harem in record time. Eventually the two men team up with a Butler (Denholm Elliott) and a Call-Girl (Jamie Lee Curtis) to teach the nasty old manipulators a lesson, cornering the market in frozen orange juice futures in the process.
Starring: Dan Aykroyd, Eddie Murphy, Jamie Lee Curtis, Denholm Elliott, Ralph Bellamy, Don Ameche.
