decent comedy
January 13, 2013
The 80's were filled with comedies about switching bodies and aside from All of Me, none of them were very good. The unfunny trend continues with Dudley Moore switching bodies with his son, Kirk Cameron, after drinking some funky sauce. Kirk Cameron proved that he couldn't even hold a movie together, let alone a Dudley Moore movie. It's supposed to be hilarity as Dudley's doctor mind is all in Kirk Cameron's body and who would take a kid doctor serious? That's the humor and it sucks.

This one came out at the same time as VICE VERSA both had the same premise.Sweet but weak script n acting

Such an original storyline, really broke new ground.... Oh wait... This is with Kirk cameron and Dudley Moore?
Pretty generic, but as a 8 year old, it was hilarious.

Such a cheesy movie! Wow, this is back when Kirk Cameron and Dudley Moore were culturally relevant. It really can't compare to the original Freaky Friday (with Jodi Foster) but I guess it's entertaining enough. Meh.

Good movie! Like 'Freaky Friday'..but the switching happens to the guys. Dudley Moore is funny..also starring Kirk Cameron, Margaret Colin and Sean Astin.

A great film, Kirk Cameron and Dudley Moore are awesome as father and son, literally. A great film about a father and son who switch personalities cause of a formula introduced by Kirk's friend. A good film to watch.

Body switching plot. Now when Kirk Cameron was "in" I thought this was a good movie. But, now have no interest in seeing it again. Ok maybe once more.
November 14, 2006
Freaky Friday, only this time with father & son. Pretty much a waste of 90 minutes. Lame, not every entertaining.
May 29, 2006
There were a whole slew of these movies that came out right around the same time. I don't remember which one came first, but now, they're all the same.
May 22, 2013
As much as I like Dudley Moore, he couldn't pull off the laid back son no more than Kirk Cameron could pull off the tightly wound dad. Forget about this weak attempt of a movie.

fail movie is fail...

Película ochenterísima y ahora que viene una nueva de "Body Swithching", pues muy de acuerdo. La verdad como muchas películas de la (C)poca es malona pero muy divertida. Adem,¡s podemos ver a dos actores que uno ya murió (Dudley Moore) y otro desapareció en la religión (Kirk Cameron).

One of the best films from one of the BEST eras in film...the 1980's. *SPOILER ALERT* High school senior Chris Hammond (Kirk Cameron) and his father, Jack (Dudley Moore), share a warm, close relationship. And if that isn't miracle enough, their familial bond gets even closer when a freak accident causes father and son to switch bodies. It's a male version of Freaky Friday as Chris and his dad learn a lot about each other ... the hard way! Co-stars Sean Astin, Margaret Colin and Catherine Hicks.

(* 1/2): Thumbs Down

Not really funny at all. If you want to see a better body switching movie, see Vice Versa with Judge Reinhold and Fred Savage.

How many times are they going to make movies like this. Where a sibling and a parent switch places. Anyways, this would be rated as one of the least popular ones. Dudley Moore as an adult and Kirk Cameron as a kid, pretty good acting. But when they switch; horrible acting. The story itself was not worked out right. A secret formula from a long time ago that can switch people blah blah blah. You could say it is typical. So I can strongly say besides some humorous parts, I did not like this film.
