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

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.
