Trivia

When Max first looks into the mirror and sees Leon's reflection, he says "oh boy" - a nod to the line said by Sam Beckett in the series Quantum Leap (1989), a program where the main character also changes into someone else. See more »

Goofs

When Max returns to the apartment to show two officers the body of the one he's "murdered," the two have their gold badges pinned to their lapels going in. On the way out, the shields are looking loose as they now appear to be the hang-around-the-neck ID badges and are not even in the same place as before. See more »

worth the watch!
16 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

I don't understand why this movie has such low ratings. It definitely is different than movies that you would typically see Adam Sandler in, but none the less still a really good movie. It was different, its appropriate for children. It was a sweet and heart-warming movie. It also had some laughs. It was a movie that I really enjoyed and probably wouldn't mind watching it again. I think this is one movie I am glad I didn't watch based on reviews but because it is an Adam Sandler movie. I think this is showing Adam Sandler in a different light and I love it. I think this role suited Adam Sandler really well it made me respect him more. I would say it is worth the watch.
