Trading places (1983)

This movie has its truly hilarious moments with Eddie Murphy as a
beggar at the beginning pretending to be crippled for example.

There's a lot of unfairness shown however in the treatment of
successful stockbroker Dan Ackroyd's character and its sad and
difficult at times to see what happens to him through much of the

This movie speaks to the issue of the "nature versus nurture" debate.
The "Duke brothers" seem to believe that what a man is in regards to
his birth endowment of intelligence, sense of connection, possible
tempermental inheritance and other congenital (perhaps) qualities
are not what is important in determining his lot in life ultimately.
Instead it is the schools he goes to and the amount of money his
family has etc, which will determine how well turns out, comparing
him perhaps to even any other one that is born on the earth too.

So they embark on an experiment to prove their point - one against
the other making a bet between themselves of fully one dollar as to
who will be proven right in their minds at the end of it all.
