Naomi McDougall Jones,
"Sam" and "Switch" are two movies made 24 years apart. The difference is "Sam" is actually funny, sweet and takes chances while "Switch" is dated, mean-spirited, and cops out with it's premise.
"Sam" is low budget and not as polished as a major studio romantic comedy but it certainly has more heart than most. It has a clever script, some famous supporting players and an amazing leading lady. You'll fall in love with Natalie Knepp. She gives an amazing performance. Mad Men's Salvatore also has a cameo that steals the show. This movie is sweet and will pleasantly surprise you if you give it half a chance.
I'm giving it a 10 out of 10 because even though it's got problems and not the most cinematic film it surprised me, made me laugh and genuinely made me care about the characters.
