Switching Channels Reviews

Christopher Reeve gets the worst of the contrived situations.

Reynolds and Turner turn in nice work as the hard-boiled couple who love to hate one another... Reeve is the surprise in this movie, turning his character into a wonderful caricature of a 1988 self-absorbed yuppie businessman.

Reynolds is charming in an otherwise so-so reworking of His Girl Friday.

Obviously one of the weaker "Front Page" remakes, but still colorful and energetic enough to warrant some faint praise.

Unofficial variant on The Front Page that occasionally works.

Very middling, but still mildly entertaining

A half-way decent updating of His Girl Friday. Half-way.

The basic mechanics of the original Hecht-MacArthur story are still sound, and Switching Channels is true to the obsessive-compulsive hostility that is the fuel for all good reporters.
