Switching Sides In the War of Sexes
28 January 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The publicist Claudio (Tony Ramos) and the housewife and choral teacher Helena (Glória Pires) 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.

"Se Eu Fosse Você" does not have an original idea, since there are many movies of switch of sex, but it is very funny and witty. Glória Pires is fantastic, very beautiful and is also responsible for some of the best moments of the movie. Tony Ramos is "too male", he does not have that "gay thing" that some actors usually show in their interpretations; therefore his body expression and movements as a woman are not natural as his role required. Anyway, his lines and situations are hilarious and his chemistry with Glória Pires is perfect. The rest of the cast is also excellent and this movie is a great entertainment. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Se Eu Fosse Você" ("If I Were You")
