A snobbish investor and a wily street con artist find their positions reversed as part of a bet by two callous millionaires.
The Westin Hotel in Philadelphia has a restaurant named Winthorpe & Valentine, after two of the main characters in this movie.
Your breakfast, sir.
In the first scene, Louis is going to work, you can see the streets, no snow at all. Later the same day, the Dukes are going to work and as you can see there is plenty of snow. Even later when Billy appears first in the park, plenty of snow.
The names of the major actors/actresses are shown superimposed on short clips from the film. The clips showing Dan Aykroyd, Eddie Murphy and Jamie-Lee Curtis respectively are obvious outtakes as they all crack up and burst into smiles and/or laughter.
When Aired on Spike TV the scene of the train speeding between Philadelphia and New York is cut as well as the scene where The Dukes and Bily Ray and Louie are walking outside of the World Trade Center. In this edited version as soon as Billy Ray and Louie go down the escalator at 30th street station in Philadelphia it cuts straight to The World Trade Center right where Louie says "Well this is it the last bastion of real pure capitalism on earth".
