Wasted Old Formula Combined with Awful Merchandising
10 January 2010 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The housewife Helena (Glória Pires) has an argument with her workaholic husband Claudio (Tony Ramos) because he refuses to travel to Italy on vacations and leave the agency where he works and Helena sends him out of their house. Claudio moves to the apartment of his single friend Nelsinho (Cássio Gabus Mendes) in Arpoador. Meanwhile their spoiled daughter discovers that she is pregnant and wants to tell their parents about the baby. Claudio is forced by Nelsinho to go to a night-club and Helena sees her husband with a woman in the door of the place and believes he is cheating her. On the next morning, she asks the divorce; after the first hearing, they switch bodies again in the lift. When Helena arrives home, her daughter tells the news to her increasing the crisis in the family.

The first "Se Eu Fosse Você" does not have an original idea, since there are many movies of switch of sex, but it is very funny and witty. Unfortunately the producers decided to repeat the wasted old formula combined with awful merchandising of a cable television and a newspaper and the result is terrible. Glória Pires again is fantastic and responsible for the few best moments of the movie. Tony Ramos with waxed eyebrow is too gay this time and I did not like his performance. The plot is shallow and full of clichés like in soap operas, following the "Globo" network standard and frivolous and simplistic view of society with the spoiled pregnant teenager marrying a wealthy young man or the couple resolving their profound marriage issues with the wedding of their daughter and an unexpected pregnancy in a ridiculous alienation of reality. My vote is four.
