3.0 out of 5 stars It Has Its Charm. January 22, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
Alright. Granted, this is not an over the boards smash hit. But in all honesty, this is better and funnier than a lot of overrated so called comedies out there today. If you have found your way to this webpage, you probably already know the basic story. Cameron and Moore (son and father) through an accident of Astin end up in each other's bodies. (I will grant that this seems overly simplistic.) But there is something humorous about seeing the mature and responsible heart surgeon being acted by Cameron, and the hormone driven, and somewhat troubled teenager being played by Moore. (As well as them trying to find their way through people the true owner of the body knows.) If we are willing to accept that this isn't a Shakespeare comedy, we may find ourselves pleasantly surprised at the humor and comedy it does offer. And like well drawn comedy, there is a moral basis. (Moore and Cameron through their short and annoying journey do learn about each other.) One thing I must say about this movie is that it DOES NOT rely on excess obscenities or slapstick. Nor does it rely on someone getting into fights every 2 mintues. Pick up this movie. It's worth a few dollars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hillarious! Kirk Cameron shines! March 20, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This hillarious comedy,about a teenager(Kirk Cameron) who switches bodies with his surgeon father(Dudley Moore),isn't just a hip,80's romp,but it has very touching moments as well! Also features Patty Duke's son,Sean Austin,as well as a great 80's soundtrack.Kirk Cameron really is funny! And Dudley Moore is great! I have loved this film since it was released,and even though some critics had mixed reviews,it made $40 million at the box-office,and still holds up as a great slapstick comedy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film! March 11, 2005
Dr. Jack Hammond(the late Dudley Moore) is a hospital worker who ends up,surgically,switching personalities with his high school son(Kirk Cameron). Now,Jack is in high school and his kid is working in the hospital. How hilarious is that? At the time of filming,Cameron was the star of the ABC sitcom Growing Pains and a teen idol as well. Cameron didn't last very long in Hollywood. I guess his fans loved him much better on GP.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its on DVD!!! April 27, 2004
By Danny
YES!! Thank you Columbia/TriStar for putting this movie on DVD! I love this movie its one of my all time favorites. Classic 80's movie. Dudley Moore "Dr. Jack Hammond"is wonderful and very funny as the father, Kirk Cameron Shines as "Chris Hammond" his teenage son. They switch bodies when friend Sean Astin "Trigger" from"Lord of the Rings" brings it over to the brain-transference serum. Dudley Moore goes wild in his sons body and hits the town with Sean Astin while Kirk Cameron in his dads body goes to the hospital and makes arounds with his dads interns. This movie I highly recommend only for teenagers and older, not for younger kids because of some of the language and adult seens. Please don't confuse this movie with that rip off "Freaky Friday" thats Disney stuff is for kids. This movie is underrated and full of laughes, Theres no special features on the DVD But it has been Remastered in High Definition! The picture quality is Awesome! Crystal Clear! really looks nice alot better than the grainy VHS version. Columbia/TriStar you guys ROCK! Great job on the DVD

4.0 out of 5 stars Please know that the stars are for sentimentality February 14, 2004
By Debbie
Format:VHS Tape
The stars I gave this film are for sentimental reasons. If you were a teenaged girl growing up in the late 1980s, this was on the must-see list. When I think that I dragged my parents to catch this on the big's no wonder I'm an only child! The performances here are predicatable. For those loving the "Lord of the Rings" series, note that Sean Astin plays a goofball friend of Kirk Cameron. Watch this only if you wish to travel back in time & remember simpler days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trading places has never been funnier... September 9, 2005
how true and right they this classic film which came BEFORE! Vice Versa, might i add...combined hilarity, humility and most of all hijinks! dudley moore and kirk cameron team up with the help of the acting chops of one sean astin, who might i say has a resume that dreams are made of...(toy soldiers, white water summer, goonies, and encino man) to play out this classic role reversal comedy. i personally own this and vice versa but only because im such a huge judge reinhold fan...however if u are looking for stellar acting, a great plot and something WIHTOUT any of fred savages little flubs here or there then this is the movie for u, your children and your childrens children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rules so bad July 25, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Listen. We all know that Judge Reinhold and Fred Savage and blah blah were "bigger stars" and the age difference stuff and all that. Yes. We know. But this movie is unbelievable. The plot is done over and over, yeah, but having Dudley Moore playing a just-became-a teenager, and Kirk Cameron "playing" an uptight father, Sean Astin...."Trigger"...hell yeah, what a killer name for a sidekick. The 80's will come back for everyone who watches this. Basically, this movie works because of all the right plot twists. It's just as good as Vice Versa or all the other "switch movies" Just get it, you won't be disappointed.
