Best "Swap" on film or television ever!
22 January 2012 | by (Pittsburgh, PA, United States) – See all my reviews

There have been dozens of films and television shows that have attempted to answer the question 'What would it be like to switch places someone else?' I have seen many of these, and this is by far the best. The acting is superb, the emotions are real, and the courses of action are rational and very believable. This makes it far more interesting and entertaining. The story centers mainly around Danny read, who wakes up in the body of Veronica Burton portrayed brilliantly by Rachel Stirling, after the two are struck by lightning near power lines. The idea that this could happen is the only suspension of disbelief required.
