Finders Keepers is a 1984 comedy film directed by Richard Lester and starring Michael O'Keefe and Beverly D'Angelo. It also starred Jim Carrey in his 6th film role.
With the law after him, and a women's Roller Derby team as well, con man Michael Rangeloff (O'Keefe) takes on the lam. He steals a coffin and boards a train, pretending to be a soldier bringing home a comrade's body. In truth, he finds a stolen stash of $5 million in hiding, which everyone wants.
The body is meant to be that of Lane Bidlekoff (Carrey), who actually dodged the draft and is still alive.
The film features songs by Supertramp such as Child of Vision and Take the Long Way Home.
