A different twist on a cross-gender storyline.
18 November 1998 | by See all my reviews

An amusing film where a sexist man is killed by one of his girlfriends, and sent back to earth to live in a woman's body. He must find a woman who loves him in order to make it into Heaven. Great performance by Ellen Barkin.
