Storyline

The publicist Claudio and the housewife and choral teacher Helena have been married for many years, but they do not understand and respect the feelings and view point of the partner. Claudio sees Helena as a shopper and "little teacher of a choral" and Helena sees Claudio as an insensitive and rough man. On the night before the fiftieth anniversary of Claudio, Mars, Earth and Jupiter are aligned and Claudio and Helena argue with each other at home and they speak at the same time "If I were you". On the next morning, when they wake-up, they have switched bodies and they have to face the difficulties of the other in the agency, in the school and with their friends and acquaintances. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Rubbish
2 June 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

A movie that if you watch you're gonna say: What wast of time!! The history is so uncreative that I supposed those people who made the movie had watched 3 or 4 movies with the same kind of blah-blah-blah. Totally plagiarism.

It's just an adaptation of Brazilian novels which means that you must keep distance.

The only point that I could give a positive point is the acting of Tony Ramos. He's good on screen and 2 or 3 times I have to admit that he put a little smile on my face but mostly of time he was to fake.

Gloria Pires (the actress) doesn't deserve any comments...
