    I thought the funniest part of the movie was, when they put their luggage on the steps of the building in Harlem and the bags go missing. the next day the people in the neighborhood have the nerve to wear the clothes they took. So true to life, that is why it was so funny!

          Hilarious movie. This is one of Eddie's best movies. He made me laugh so hard in this movie and Arsenio Hall was the funniest too. He made me laugh so hard in almost every scene.
