From the VHS cover:
Eddie Murphy established himself as a comedy star of the highest magnitude as Billy Ray Valentine, a streetwise hustler. His fellow “Saturday Night Live” alumnus, Dan Akroyd also stars as Louis Winthorpe III, a wealthy investment executive at Duke Brothers, a Wall Street firm. The fun starts when thee rich and greedy Duke Brothers wager a bet on whether a born loser (like Valentine) could become successful as Winthorpe if placed in the proper environment; and if a prig like Winthorpe were to lose all, would he turn to a life of crime? The Dukes arrange for that to happen. Valentine becomes the golden boy of the commodities market and Winthorpe finds himself out on the streets.
The two pawns meet, compare notes, figure out who’s doing this to them… and Valentine and Winthorpe set in motion some hilarious revenge plans of their own…
