I’ve been catching references to the John Landis comedy Trading Places all over lately, ever since I saw The Blues Brothers again this weekend. Within 5 days I’ve noticed 3 references to the film. What the hell is up with that? Anyway, I’d forgotten how much I love those great John Landis comedies like Coming to America. They’re delightful things to stumble on during a Sunday afternoon cable-surf and are something I genuinely miss about cable television. Anyway, go rent Trading Places.
