That's really good for an 11 or 12 year old (at the time).

Vice Versa is one of the funniest comedies about a child changing places with an adult. There are several other movies like this in which the mind of a child occupies an adult body and, in this case, vice versa, or some similar variation. They include Like Father Like Son, Freaky Friday, Big, Dream A Little Dream, Eighteen Again, and The Kid. In Vice Versa Judge Reinhold plays Marshall Seymour, a divorced department store purchaser who has his son Charlie (Fred Savage of The Wonder Years, The Wizard, etc.) for the weekend. Marshall just returned from a buying trip in the orient, mistakenly in posession of a magical skull. Charlie thinks his dad's unfairly ragging on him and in the midst of an argument, he finds the skull and Marshall tries to take it away from him. Just as they are both handling it, in the heat of argument Charlie wishes they could trade places, and they do. Before they figure out how to change back, Marshall has to attend Charlie's school in the boys body, and Charlie has to go to work at the department store as Marshall, as well as deal with the man's rocky relationship with his girfriend. All these situations provide plenty of laughs. One of my favorite parts is when Charlie's mother walks in on them, and sees her son Charlie - really her ex Marshall - drinking a martini. His reaction is as funny as hers: "S*#& what's she doing here?" You have to see it to get it. Other good comedy emerges from Charlie's adventures as a grownup in the department store and Marshall's experiences as a kid, dealing with bullies and teachers at school. It has a happy ending

If you ever loved a movie that no one else seemed to even know about, did you feel obligated to promote it? At the time VICE VERSA came out, there was a wave of role-reversal stories on film, the biggest of them being BIG. While BIG featured a great comic performance by Tom Hanks, VICE VERSA had even funnier work from both Judge Reinhold and Fred Savage. BIG got the box office and Oscar nominations. But if you haven't seen VICE VERSA, see it now and tell me if it isn't even funnier and more heartwarming than the Tom Hanks film.

Whatever you do, don't miss this jewel. I have enjoyed this movie since it came out in 1988. Frankly, it remains my favorite all time movie. This movie is just PURE FUN to watch and moves along in a brilliant manner. You can't watch this movie without laughing out load. Now, isn't this the reason we watch movies? The complete cast should be applauded for a wonderful performance. If you have not seen this movie, buy it or rent it as fast as you can and join in the FUN!

I don't think they could've cast this movie any better. You've got Fred Savage, a kid who - to my knowledge - never, EVER came off as a kid in anything he ever acted in, and you've got Judge Reinhold, a guy who generally just always has a certain youthfulness to him, both cast in another take on the Freaky Friday formula. Before the switch, Fred Savage is every bit as awkward as you can imagine in his role as Judge Reinhold's character's son. From the moment the switch occurs, however, hilarity ensues, and both Fred Savage and Judge Reinhold nail their reversed roles. Highly recommended.

I saw this move when it first came out and forgot about it. Then a couple of weeks ago I thought about it and could not find it any but on amazon. Thanks.
