Typically when I’m asked “what are your favorite Christmas comedies?” it comes down to a few top picks. Elf is a classic, and there’s a special place in my heart for Bad Santa. But my top holiday comedy of all time is probably Trading Places. AND unlike other holiday-themed movies, it’s a comedy that’s funny year-round. I can’t count the number of times that I’ve seen it, and it STILL makes me laugh! Let’s be honest, a little laughter is essential right now. I am trying to find joy wherever I can these days.
In facts that may make you feel your age, turns out that the Dan Ackroyd/Eddie Murphy classic celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, and was just released on Digital and Blu-ray June 12th. The friendly folks at Paramount Home Media Distribution are offering a giveaway just for Afrobella readers!
How can you enter, how do you win?
I have THREE copies of Trading Places on Blu-ray™ that the folks from Paramount Home Media Distribution will send to three lucky Afrobella readers.
“Celebrating its 35th anniversary, TRADING PLACES pairs Murphy with Dan Aykroyd in director John Landis’ sidesplitting social satire. A small-time con artist switches roles with a big-time stock market maven as part of an idle bet between two mega-rich brothers. But when the truth comes out, the consequences are pure comedy gold. The Blu-ray includes multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes, as well as access to a digital copy.”
Leave a comment below telling me your favorite scene from the movie! Three winners will be chosen at random by 6/25.
