''Trading Places''!!

By RD Heldenfels Published: January 18, 2006

I've been going through the season premiere of ''American Idol,'' collecting ideas to elaborate on later. One is how Ryan Seacrest is finally bearable, as if all his other TV deals make him secure enough to be a lot snarkier than I remember him being -- refreshingly so. But first ...


We now know that Randy is not a ''Trading Places'' fan. Remember the guy who auditioned twice? And who, the second time, went into that odd little ''Constance Fry'' ditty that Randy did not recognize? Get out your DVD of ''Trading Places,'' the Dan Aykroyd-Eddie Murphy comedy. Go to the scene in the health club where a newly disgraced Louis is snubbed by his snooty friends. The song the guys sing at the bar is the one the auditioner did on ''Idol.'' I think it's called ''Oralee Cookies.''


Love that movie.
