I really liked Stripes. It was a solid film.

Sweet, two overrated classic comedies. I can't remember a single funny moment from trading spaces though... but I do blame it for all the white guy/black guy comedy I have to endure nowadays.

Stripes ;-D

You're right, I can't remember a single funny moment from Trading Spaces. ;-7 That Paige Davis chick annoyed me.

And technically can't you blame Eddie Murphy in general for all the white guy/black guy comedies? 48 Hours, Beverly Hills Cop.

Or do you go even further back, because I'm pretty sure Gene Wilder/Richard Pryor were doing them first.

Yep, you got me... I definitely said "Trading Spaces" instead of "Trading Places" I will say this, Paige Davis is annoying. I like her hair though, makes her seem sassy.

Also, Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder did the white guy/black guy movies when it was kind of a hot button issue. It was revolutionary. now the whole genre is just tired and boring. Yeah, there are cultural differences that make two people from different races interact in a specific way; hilarity ensues.

But, I blame Eddie Murphy for making them commonplace and bad. Not that there aren't clever ones, but after "Rush Hour" I realized that they're definitely running out of funny racial combinations.

Maybe they should make a comedy about two cops; One's an Israeli, the other's Palestinian... and they teach each other that what makes them different, makes them funny; and they learn a little about life, a little about living and a lot about love.

Starring Mel Gibson and Billy Crystal.

Trading Places was decent, but was the worst of the good Eddie Murphy films in the '80s. Stripes was good, but let's be clear here: it was no Spies Like Us. They are about even in my mind, I think I'll have to sit this one out.
