Taking Care of Business (Special Edition) (DVD)
Directed by Arthur Hiller
James Belushi (Mr. Destiny) is Jimmy Dworski, a happy-go-lucky convict who breaks out of prison and finally gets a life –- somebody else's. When Dworski finds the daily planner book that literally runs the life of ultra-organized executive Spencer Barnes (Charles Grodin, The Couch Trip), all hell breaks loose. With newfound cash, credit cards, and the keys to a Malibu mansion, the imposter Dworski embarks on an all-expense-paid trip to "Easy Street" while posing as the high-powered Barnes. Meanwhile, Spencer's life is turned upside down as he hunts through the jungles of Los Angeles for his beloved book. When these oddball opposites finally meet, it's a comedic collision you won't soon forget. Arthur Hiller (The In-Laws, The Hospital) directed this screwball comedy written by Jill Mazursky (Gone Fishin’) and J.J. Abrams (Super 8) and featuring Loryn Locklin (Fortress), Hector Elizondo (Young Doctors in Love), Veronica Hamel (Cannonball!) and Mako (An Eye for an Eye).
DVD Extras Include:
Audio Commentary by Screenwriter Jill Mazursky, moderated by Filmmaker Douglas Hosdale
