Storyline

Ellie O'Brien (List) is trying to juggle rhythmic gymnastics and troubles with her best friend. Meanwhile, classmate Jack Malloy (Bertrand) is struggling to live up to his brothers' hockey-star legacies and his dad's high expectations and tough-love approach. When a text argument about whose life is easier gets out of hand, Ellie and Jack trigger an explainable real-life swap. As each tries to navigate the other's life, hilarity ensues when Ellie (as Jack) learns about brotherly bonding and hockey lingo, while Jack (as Ellie) has to decipher girl code and experiences a spa day. With a rhythmic gymnastics championship and a spot on the varsity hockey team on the line, they must figure out how to get back in their own bodies before the swap becomes permanent. As they are forced to literally walk in each other's shoes, they gain empathy for one another and learn valuable lessons about their own lives. Written by Disney Channel PR

Pleasantly surprised
9 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The average viewer probably would have expected full-on comedy with a meaningless lesson at the end.

It ended up being about coping with the death of a parent and dealing with divorce.. What?

A lot of times I forgot they had switched bodies because I was so emotionally invested in the characters' stories.

I loved the fact that the leads were not love interests. Too many DCOMs ignore that platonic relationships exist (Teen Beach Movie, Cloud 9, just to name a few).

Cons: one too many music montages, having them learn a new sport overnight, some funky dialogue between the teens--no one talks like that.
