Pamela Drury is unhappy, and alone. On her birthday she stumbles across a photo of Robert Dickson, and wonders what would've happened had she said yes to his proposal. A freak accident causes Pamela to live out the life she could've had, but is the grass on the other side always greener? Written by

"Me, Myself and I" is for fans of "little romantic Australian movies" like "Hotel de Love" and "Muriel's Wedding" (which I am a sucker for) or "alternative universe/what if movies" like "Sliding Doors" and "Twice Upon Yesterday" or sort of "Next Stop Wonderland" (of which I am also a sucker for) or even "mid-life crisis movies" like "Metroland" (which I deeply went through when I turned 40 so can really relate to).
Except for a tacked-on romantic ending in the closing moments, this is a charming tour de force for Rachel Griffiths (Hilary of "Hilary and Jackie") as she plays both "what if's" in her life. I liked that each parts of herself learn from the switch.
I would think that both singles and confirmed marrieds would enjoy what each self goes through as they seemed realistic to me. Well to women at least (the women in the audience were rolling in the aisles at the scenes of the single woman suddenly having to cope with how a married woman deals with birth control).
