I enjoyed Perfect Strangers
21 July 2005 | by (Tulsa OK) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a cute movie. I sure hope it comes out on VHS/DVD. I would definitely like to own it. It was a quirky little romantic comedy about a male American and a female Brit who work for different branches of the same company and swap places -- Lowe's character goes to Britain, and the female Brit comes to America. It was cute! The difference in the size of living conditions between the US and UK are quite interesting, too. The Brit has a very small flat (apartment), and Lowe's character has a spacious condo. Toward the end, they actually have to work together to get their jobs done. Also, they fall in love. It was a lovely story.
