I found this film to be a pleasant surprise, considering the low rating here. I enjoyed the plot (reminded me of the Mirror Image TZ episode) the acting was well done and I was never bored for a moment. This film could definitely be given a remake, maybe ending instead with the uptight Pellham watching his happy family with the liberated Pellham, and deciding it was best for him to start a new life somewhere else. The real ending to this film is okay, if it had ended 5 seconds earlier then it would be a pretty typical climax but that side-ache that the cooler Pellham feels for a moment could be a number of things (including the uptight one taking his body back.) It is fascinating that this was made before Moore's tenure as Bond, yet he mentions James Bond in one scene (the first film he mentions those two words) and it is funny how the cooler Pellham resembles a suburban James Bond. This is given new levels of meaning, since part of Bond's charm is that he is what other guys want to be, and in this film one man gets that wish. The part may be perfect for Moore, just separate the elements of his cool yet uptight secret agent and you have the two characters on screen. Very well done.
