unwanted sex change brings two subjects closer.
6 November 2001 | by (japan) – See all my reviews

This hilarious movie catapults two youngsters hitting puberty into the opposite sex after a fall from which they recover in each other's bodies. The timid sensitive girl becomes the effeminate insecure boy, and the unredeeming prankster becomes the loud clumsy girl with a chip on her shoulder. Both lead actors do tremendous jobs portraying the opposite sex, and often do so delivering more than a laugh. It ends in a bittersweet tone, but it is a really cute movie with hilarious moments.
