Little to like outside of Diane Franklin
1 August 2003 | by (Berkeley, CA) – See all my reviews

The concept of the movie has been done before much better. The idea of a pair of lovers trying to work out their issues by reincarnating as famous historic couples doesn't work mostly from the script and overly light directing.

The only reason to watch this movie is to watch Diane Franklin show her acting chops (and her body in the Adam and Eve sequence). She seemed like she had real potential in her career, capped with the brilliant movie Better Off Dead.
