Top 5 Prince & The Pauper Styled “Livin’ Like The Poor” Movies


Top 5 Prince & The Pauper Styled “Livin’ Like The Poor” Movies

This Top 5 may need a little explanation.  Pretty much any movie that has a rich/wealthy/royalty lifestyle and either switches places with a “poor” person or finds himself in the “poor house”.  If you can think of any others than the ones we have feel free to speak up.  We may make some changes to our Top 5’s!

Who doesn’t love Coming to America starring Eddie Murphy & Arsenio Hall? My number 1 and 2 picks were mostly nostalgia for me.  The Dictator was a good one but Nostalgia reigns supreme.  Life Stinks isn’t one of my favorite Mel Brooks movies but when it comes to this specific plot genre, it slides in.  The parent trap was close and it almost got beat out by Big Business starring Bette Midler & Lilly Tomlin.
