Storyline

The next door neighbors Nell Bedworth and Woody Deane have opposite behaviors and hate each other: the virgin geek Nell is polite, sensitive and well-prepared to go to Yale, while Woody is rude and his greatest expectation is to join a mediocre university due to his abilities playing football. When Nell and Woody are assigned to visit a museum together, they argue in front of a statue of an Aztec god. During the night, their souls swap bodies, bringing difficult situations to them. They first try to damage each other's reputation in high school, but soon they discover that their dream of joining college can only happen with mutual respect and support. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Very Funny, Better than other body swap movies
27 December 2006 | by mark_danbySee all my reviews

We have had several body swap movies but this one offers something that is a little different. It is very funny but at the same time has characters that you believe in and care for.

This film gets plenty of laughs out of the sexual differences that other body swap movies have not dared to explore but don't think that this film is full of cheap jokes because it is not. There is so much more to this movie that it should appeal to all. The sound track is also excellent and a good cameo role for Sharon Osbourn.

The target audience is the teen market but I think everyone can fine something to enjoy in this film.

I went with my wife and two children aged 10 and 12, my wife through it was funnier than White Chicks and they also approved by saying we should purchase the DVD when released.
