While visiting his hometown during Christmas, a man comes face-to-face with his old high school crush whom he was best friends with -- a woman whose rejection of him turned him into a ferocious womanizer.
Dave is a married man with three kids and a loving wife, and Mitch is a single man who is at the prime of his sexual life. One fateful night while Mitch and Dave are peeing in a fountain, lightning strikes and they switch bodies.
Chris Brander has always been friends with Jamie Palamino, but now decides it is time to take his relationship to the next step. The problem is that Jamie still wants to be 'Just Friends'. When he runs away and moves to L.A., he becomes an attractive music manager, whom everyone wants. When his jet catches fire and is forced to land, when flying to Paris with his newest singing sensation, Samantha James, he ends up back home. To his surprise, he encounters Jamie again, and sets out to be more than 'Just Friends' this time. Written by
In the opening scene when Chris is leaving the party on his bike, he paraphrases a line from Bruce Springsteen's "Thunder Road": "It's a town full of losers, and I'm pulling out of here to win." See more »
When Chris, Jamie and his Mom are watching home videos in the living room, in one of the video shots, where there is a close up on Chris' "fat face", you can see part of his fat suit peeling off his chin. See more »
We need to talk about what you wrote. Is that really how you feel?
I don't know. Maybe. Why?
Because that's the nicest thing anyone's ever written me.
Yes. I love you Chris -

I just saw this movie, and it is hands down funny. The humor outweighed some of the plot flaws that the critics so eloquently exploited, but IT YOU WANT TO LAUGH, GO SEE THIS MOVIE. All of the actors are excellent, the story isn't one you have to think about, and best of all its about love and revenge, who can't relate to that? Not only will this movie keep you laughing, it will catch you off guard with some of the more serious moments that fuels the comedy. I would have to say that this film definitely comes close to Wedding Crashers and the 40-Year Old Virgin. New Line definitely has released a little gem with this one, finally a reason to return to the movie theaters.
