I noticed that there is another review for this film and they score it a 10. To me, that's like giving a velvet Elvis painting space in the Louvre...it just doesn't make any sense. The plot is ridiculous and so full of clichés that I cannot recommend it unless you are a glutton for punishment.
The film begins with a high-powered exec (Barbara Feldon) working at a kooky magazine. The folks working there are mostly caricatures...one-dimensional idiots who couldn't get a job doing ANYTHING let alone work for a big magazine. With all these kooky people around her, she naturally is suck of this job. At the same time, a housewife (Barbara Eden) is tired of being a mommy and wants some excitement in her life.
Well, the two ladies are good friends and when they meet for lunch and BOTH complain about their lives, they decide an experiment...to trade lives for a week. The results are pretty much like what you'd see in a terrible Disney film of the era...with people who are not like ANY human beings on the planet and the film is less believable and fun that a crappy sit-com! Badly written, the two leads simply could NOT be good because of the material. Much of this is because like MANY early 70s films about feminism (such as "The Feminist and the Fuzz"...also starring Barbara Eden), it really makes feminism seem cartoonish and a bit stupid.
