    First off, there is no difference in this Blu-ray version; and, the version issued by Paramount a few years ago. Only the cover sheet is different; the special/bonus features are the same. That said; this film still holds up after all this time. While the audio is standard Dolby Digital 5.1; and, not, say , Dolby TruHD 5.1, or DTS HD Masterlossless 5.1, the sound is still very good, and clear. The picture quality is better than the DVD of the movie(which I have) and the detail is sharper. The basic story has been done before( The 3 Stooges did one of their shorts with this as the plot); but, the twists and turns in this film give it the original, and very funny moments. It is not for the kids; but, it is one that I can recommend. Enjoy!

    This is the quintessential '80s flick. Infinitely quotable ("pork bellies, hmm?" "there you go - one crisp dollar," "Meddy New Year!", etc.), gratuitous nudity (haha), and a well put-together comedy in only the way that the '80s could produce well put-together comedies. This is perhaps my favorite Eddie Murphy flick, and definitely my favorite Dan Aykroyd flick.

    My kids loved it, I forgot how great a movie this was and many old movies kids have trouble sitting through (old looking film quality, no effects and such). But I had two full classes raving about it, 3 planning to go buy it, and one who finally began to understand the risks of investing in a financial plan.

    This is a classic comedy! I enjoyed this Blu-ray edition. There are some interesting special features also about the stock market. I am not crazy about the slipcover nor the cover art. Very plain, not much style.

    Good and funny, forgot how comical - the older actors are so good at being bad. Eddie Murphy was great but Dan Aykroyd was awesome. Jaime lee Curtis really helped tie it together along with Denholm Elliott, who was pained to see the whole thing play out as the butler.

    The sweat of passion drips down my sinewy frame as I watch this master work of cinema. Nothing better than Eddie and Dan and Jamie Lee and her two bouncy chest jowls!

    This movie gets older but doesnt get dull. All star cast albeit a fairly odd clan of notable actors but the diversity worked out rather well. 5/5 stars hands down.

    One of the best movies that came out of the 80’s. No big major improvement over the last time it was released but its on blu ray and it look great. Glad it was rereleased again.

    Both Eddie Murphy and Dan Ackroyd are at their comedic best in this classic comedy. It was so much better on bluray. I would highly recommend this movie.

    If you like comedy this is a great holiday movie to view anytime. A heads up, it does contain a handful of shots of brief frontal nudity.

    Classic Eddie Murphy film that holds up well over time. Found myself laughing at some of the same old jokes I did when it first came out.

    Lets just say that they don't make comedies like this anymore! This is such a funny flick that should not be missed! Very funny concept! Murphy in his Prime and Akroyd as well. Very very good! See this!
