This movie kept me watching
13 July 2002 | by Christopher HewittSee all my reviews

"Model Behavior" is a movie about where a super model and a regular teen switch places. I kept watching this because it wasn't like "Freaky Friday" or "Wish upon a Star", those are about when the characters make a wish to trade places and it 'magically' happens. This is where the people look alike. That is what kept me watching. I also liked it because of the way it was written. If I told you what happened, I would be spoiling it, so I will just tell you that much. But my other likeness of this was how well Maggie Lawson came upon the roles of BOTH characters. She made it seem so real. And how they put the two pictures together was amazing because it actually looked like there were two people there. So I give this a 9 out of 10 for only a few minor problems. P. S. I hope I am not confusing the reader
