Deserves the right to be called a "bouse"
8 January 2009 | by josymontmartre-1See all my reviews

... or "turkey" in English. For those who still haven't understood, this film is a total waste (of money, talent & time). The director flunked the funny, witty, edgy tone of the novel, a book which illustrated the surrealistic 'pitch' (a man and wife switch life to see how it's like to be 'on the other side') with just enough irony to be somewhat "realistic" (which wasn't the point). The "TV prime-time movies" standards being what they are, all the acid juice has turned into lukewarm syrup, breeding a romantic comedy which is repellent from A to Z. The mess even gradually becomes a catalogue of stereotyped characters, dismissing along the way 30 years of feminism (of course, women CRRRRAVE to buy jewelry while slouching on the pool side, or they would KILLLLL to buy the services of a male model who would do handiwork at their homes). The story basically consists in sending men & women back to back, stating that the war of sexes is useless since "both have good and bad sides". Hoho, what a breakthrough in humor, intelligence and cinema in general ! All this with overacting (and under-directed) actors, thrown under the laziest camera in the world. Times are hard for comedy fans...
