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

and Kirk Cameron

said: "I absolutely envisioned Dudley as Dr. Jack Hammond. He's a unique personality in that he's an adult and a child at the same time.

Grzaer added: "As far as Kirk's role, we were looking for a really good young actor that could do comedy. There aren't many of them and Kirk was both a natural and an Ideal choice". See more
