Storyline

Leo, an egocentric, sexist businessman, who thinks he's God's gift to women, gets a taste of his own medicine when he tries picking up the wrong woman: a murderous psycho who shoots him. Leo falls off a bridge and emerges from the river, inexplicity transformed into a beautful woman. Naming herself Cleo, she (he) begins to place herself in Leo's life. While avoiding sexist office types and trying to find a way to turn herself back into a man, "Cleo" begins to develop her own personality that begins to take over Leo's. Written by Anonymous

Great gender bender ........... very funny ............................
6 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie will be a very pleasant surprise, for anyone willing to find the very obscure VHS. The entire cast puts tremendous effort into having fun with this one, and it shines through in every scene. "Cleo Leo", although featuring several porn stars, is NOT a porn movie. It is a very entertaining comedy, that contains some nudity that actually makes sense for a change, by that I mean this is not simply the gratuitous girls pole dancing in a strip club type nudity. This odd romance has some tender moments, and even more hilarious moments. Cleo Leo puts a whole new twist on the battle between the sexes, and is highly recommended viewing. - MERK
