Dr. Jack Hammond has best chances to become medical superintendent in the clinic. So he's completely absorbed in his work and has no understanding for his teenage son Chris' problems with school. By accident one of them drinks a brain-exchanging serum, and it switches their identities. This leads of course to extraordinary complications in school and at work, but also to insight in the problems and feelings of each other. Written by

Chris and his dad have accidentally changed bodies - but no big deal. Chris gets the Jag and the Gold Card. Dad gets the fake ID and the bio final.

Star Dudley Moore
was immediately smitten with Like Father Like Son
(1987). Moore said: "The idea of swapping bodies appealed to me, and it was a good excuse to be a kid again . . . although I don't need an excuse. It was just a fun story. I had been sixteen years old once, and I don't pretend to be a professional adult. I really didn't play a sixteen year old. I think that would have been mildly boring. So, instead of going for accuracy, we went for the fun of the situation. I was playing an attitude, not an age". See more
(Possibly deliberate.) The Hammonds' cat has a male name, "Seymour", but its patches of orange, black and white fur are hallmarks of a calico cat. Virtually all calico cats are female. See more
The name's Trigger, as in "horse," as in "hung like."
