Steve Brooks is a sexist and the prototype macho. Unfortunately one day he is killed by one of his girlfriends. In heaven, though, there is no place for men like him and he is sent back to earth in the body of a woman so that he can see how women are treated by men like the one he once was. Written by

This film was indirectly referenced in numerous episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000
(1988). In the original television spots for the film, Jimmy Smits
name was announced in an unusual way: "Ellen Barkin
. Switch. Jimmy Smits
. Starts Friday." The writers of MST3K found it amusing that Smits' name was announced after the title and not announced as "also starring Jimmy Smits" or "with Jimmy Smits", only as "Jimmy Smits". In various episodes, a character would say "Jimmy Smits" whenever the word "switch" was uttered or sometimes for seemingly no reason at all. See more
"Amanda's" hair is back to its same length (and style) when Walter visits "her" in the psychiatric hospital as it was before "she" had the barber cut it. While "she" does say "she" has been there for five months, and apparently five or six months have transpired from the time of the trial, there is no way the hair would have grown from above the ears to down below the shoulders in six months - hair grows about 1/2 inch per month, so it would be about 3 inches longer than before. The hair should have only been slightly longer to show that amount of time has passed. See more
