The old Muppet guys in their live action debut

Hosted by Ashish Thomas
With
James O’Donnell and Glen Wolfe
Recorded at Platinum Wolfe Studios

From IMDB Synopsis

A snobbish investor and a wily street con artist find their positions reversed as part of a bet by two callous millionaires.

Fun Facts

The film was conceived as a vehicle for Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. But when Pryor dropped out and Eddie Murphy came on board, he made a motion to get Wilder replaced because he didn’t want people to think he was just trying to be another Pryor..

Senator Al Franken, former writer on Saturday Night Live (1975), plays one of the baggage handlers on the train. Many connections back to SNL are in the film.

The baggage handlers were supposed to be Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas as the Mackenzie brothers from SCTV (1976). When they fell through, Dan Aykroyd or Eddie Murphy recommended Tom Davis and Al Franken from their SNL days.

Harley Quinn connection
Arleen Sorkin The original voice (and inspiration) of Harley Quinn, is in the film in a cameo in the bedroom.

Next Christmas movie Die Hard…..
