The wide generation gap between Tess Coleman and her teenage daughter Anna is more than evident. They simply cannot understand each other's preferences. On a Thursday night they have a big argument in a Chinese restaurant. Both receive a fortune cookie each from the restaurant owner's mother which causes them to switch bodies next day. As they adjust with their new personalities, they begin to understand each other more and eventually it's the mutual self-respect that sorts the things out. Written by
When Anna (in Tess's body) was woken up by Tess (in Anna's body), Anna tried to fix her hair as she got up but Anna was fixing her hair like she was still Tess - brushing the ends of her short hair. As "Anna", she should have instead tried touching her "long" hair. See more »
This film is an excellent entertainment. I thoroughly enjoyed it and well put-together explaining individual mind-frame and it works.
I am sure we easily judge into other people's positive and negative attitudes, but unless we put ourselves into their shoes, we will never know. Hence this film takes us into the journey of a daughter and mother who have complete different personalities. After a while, the daughter and mother switch "only" bodies (via some weird Chinese magic), by which they realize each others "actual life".
This film could have been made in various forms, but the writer and the director chose a way by which they can convey their message to the society while entertaining at the same time, which I personally think is a better option. The film is very light-hearted, well scripted, well directed, excellent costumes, brilliant acting skills, and finally very easy to follow the storyline.
Please do yourself a favor and rent this DVD (and order a pizza) and watch it at home with your family - maybe it will do you some good.
Enjoy! NEIL BHATIA
