Finders Keepers is a 1984 comedy film directed by Richard Lester and starring Michael O'Keefe, Beverly D'Angelo and features an early performance by Jim Carrey. It was shot entirely in Alberta, Canada.


Con man Michael Rangeloff (Michael O'Keefe) is a fugitive from the law and from a women's roller derby team. Stealing a coffin and boarding a train, he masquerades as a soldier bringing home a comrade's body, but the casket actually houses $5 million in stolen money that is being sought by several parties. Rangeloff claims that his deceased friend is Lane Biddlecoff (Carrey), but Biddlecoff is a draft-dodger who is still alive.



The film features songs by Supertramp such as "Child of Vision" and "Take the Long Way Home".[2]
