Plot Summary
The motion picture's main character is Jason (Frank Stallone), an uncomfortable and unsuccessful Hollywood tourist guide. He leads tours to celebrity homes, where, paradoxically, he is struggling to make his own inroads into the world of popularity and fortune. Jason comes across an incredibly lucky streak at horse races, an unexpected win that sets in motion a series of occasions that change his life completely.

He makes the associate of a lovely female called Caroline (Daryl Hannah) and finds himself deviating from his boring, regular life, far from his repeatedly unlucky at love trip representative girlfriend, JuanitŠ°. Nevertheless, he quickly realizes that Caroline is not who she supposed to be. She ends up being the better half of a mob employer, Gus (Dennis Hopper), who later on discovers Jason's affair with his wife.

On the other hand, Jason's extraordinary winning streak with the horses brings in the attention of an eccentric bettor named Elvis (Peter Fonda), resulting in a distinct and unanticipated friendship. Elvis takes an interest in Jason's winning streak, which ultimately culminates in them winning a fortune.

Climax and Conclusion
Nevertheless, the late awareness of Caroline's association together with the financial fortune leads Jason to the hazardous crossway of luck and greed. He earns Gus's rage, who, feeling cheated both personally and expertly, takes a vow to kill Jason. How Jason liberates himself from this sticky circumstance with the vicious mob boss forms the climax of the movie. In the end, he must determine whether his recently obtained "excellent life" of wealth and an illegal romance deserves the risk it brings.

The Good Life works as an interesting take on the short lived, misleading appeal of simple fortune juxtaposed against the extreme truths of aspiration and greed, diving deep into the contrasting human desires for wealth and peace.
