If only you could be a twin!
29 July 2001 | by Jools-10See all my reviews

Some might call this made for television movie corny or boring but I really enjoyed it! I first saw this in 1985 and again about a year ago and to me it was still the same. The story is one of the twins is married with two children a boy and a girl and is really mousey and bored of her life. Her twin is the total opposite she is the life and soul of the party has many lovers and her own business but she to is not happy. So they meet in Venice for a big birthday party and decide to swap lives for a short time and you guessed it they are not able to swap back at the given time so they have to be each other for a little bit longer. I don't want to give away the plot but if you have nothing to do and this is on television one night give it ago!
