26 August 2002 | by kenandrafSee all my reviews

Average fantasy romance comedy that has average production and bad screenplay.Almost like one of those nimerous Walt Disney fantasy B movies where in spirits/identities switch to create a funny situation.Only for big fans of the lead stars and this particular genre......
