I'm looking to buy it too, but at a decent price. From what I've heard and read, it looks quite good for an 80's catalog title.

The review on this site gives it a 4 for PQ.

I'd like to pick this one up too, but I haven't been able to find it yet. I can wait until Paramount makes it's return though.

I have it, and it looks great, especially for an older movie....it certainly won't ever look better.

Well worth it.

A few UK stores have this very cheap, under $20.

I found it at a local store for $30 along with Coming to America. Maybe I should get it.

It was like watching the film again for the first time. Very glad I picked it up when it was readily available.

I used to rent things from Netflix to decide if I wanted to buy them or not first. To me the PQ on Trading Places has more of an immediate "WOW" factor than a lot of others that I have purchased. I love the movie anyway but it just looks so darn good in Blu. My local Best Buy had most of the Paramount titles still in stock so I grabbed the ones that I wanted but hadn't bought yet when Paramount jumped ship.

LOL

Anyway, the movie does look great on Blu-ray Disc. I watched it on a 1080p projector on a 100" screen. Very impressive for a comedy movie from the 80s.

I can parrot what everyone else is saying; it looks good for when it was made.
The audio, however, is only Dolby Digital 5.1.
