Duncan is a genius straight A student, Blade is juvenile delinquent. But because of a mix up with their school records, everyone thinks each is the other one. Now, Duncan kind of likes the attention from being thought of as a real bad dude, if only the school bully would stop trying to rough him up. And Blade definitely likes being thought of as important instead of as trouble, if only the teacher would stop hitting on him for a date.Written by

Thomas Mikal Ford, who later went by Tommy Ford, plays the villain "Mink" in the movie. Two months after the film's release he would go on to play "Tommy Strawn" in the hit Fox sitcom "Martin" starring comedian Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell. Lawrence and Campbell worked with Kid 'N Play previously in their House Party movies. Kid would also go on to act in an episode of Martin titled "Forever Sheneneh" playing himself. It is the first time all actors were reunited on screen together, sans Play who had previously left the entertainment industry. See more »
When Blade is taking Duncan's glasses off and giving him the gold tooth to put in his mouth, the camera switches to Blade taking the tooth out then back to Duncan saying "that's not hygienic" with the gold tooth already in his mouth. See more »
Duncan Pinderhughes (Kid) is explaining to the guard how he ended up in jail. He was an A student ready to go to college. Before graduating, Duncan is forced to take a final PE course. Blade Brown (Play) has always been a delinquent. He was let out of jail on the condition that he completes school with honors. Their records are accidentally switched and it goes downhill from there for Duncan.
The comedy is extremely broad and generally bad. There is barely a laugh in this cheese. Kid'n Play don't come off well. Kid is a clownish nerd and Play is a thug. Neither gets any laughs unless you get to smoke something. They do get to rap at the end which is fine. There is also an early Pauly Shore in his bbbudddy getup.
