Finders Keepers is a heartwarming comedy-drama from 1984, directed by Richard Lester and starring Michael O'Keefe, Beverly D'Angelo, and Louis Gossett Jr. The movie follows the story of Michael Rangeloff (portrayed by O'Keefe), a young man who has been raised by his grandfather, who was an inventor. After his grandfather passes away, Michael inherits a strange invention - a machine that can turn garbage into gold. Along with his best friend, Hector (played by Jim Carrey in one of his earliest film roles), Michael sees this invention as a chance to get rich quick, but things quickly spiral out of control.

Soon, Michael and Hector are being chased by a group of criminals who want to get their hands on the invention, and they must navigate a series of misadventures in order to keep themselves and the invention safe. Along the way, they meet a variety of eccentric characters, including a group of homeless people who live in an abandoned theater and a wealthy businessman who may be able to help them.

At the same time, Michael is also dealing with personal issues - he has fallen in love with a beautiful girl named Cheryl (played by D'Angelo), but he is too shy to tell her how he feels. As he tries to navigate the complexities of their relationship, he must also figure out who he can trust and what he really wants in life.

As the movie progresses, Michael and Hector's adventures become increasingly wild and unpredictable. There are car chases, shootouts, and even a scene where they launch a hot air balloon made out of garbage. Through it all, the film maintains a lighthearted tone and a sense of whimsy, and the performances from the talented cast keep the audience engaged and invested in the characters' journeys.

Ultimately, Finders Keepers is a movie about finding your place in the world - about figuring out who you are and what you want, even when the odds seem stacked against you. It is a film that celebrates the power of friendship, the joy of discovery, and the importance of taking risks in order to achieve your dreams. With its charming blend of humor, heart, and adventure, it is a classic 80s movie that is sure to delight viewers of all ages.
