      Kim T one of my favourite Australian movies. Great cast and wish Claudia karvan and guy Pearce would do another comedy together. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Dull, boring, and even duller. AVOID. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Because of its rarity as a Hollywood-esque, Australian made romantic comedy it gets some respect. Rightly or wrongly, there aren't many other films like this in our local cinema history. Having said that, it's a very difficult film to sit through. Only Karvan's light shines brightly. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Brett is the host of a hip music show. He is about to move to New York for work as a video dj, which has him considering the future of his relationship with Tash, a scientific writer for the Australian. After a serious argument, Tash wishes they could swap bodies so that she could show how creepy he has become in the past year. Overnight, her wish comes true. The changes are hysterical as the couple discovers what being the other sex is really like. It's a tired plot relying on gender stereotypes, but if not taken too seriously, it is just a funny time. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A body-swapping comedy that is driven by the fine performances of leads Claudia Karvan and Guy Pearce. The film is fun for most of its run, but could've done with a little more pedantic editing, as the momentum loses steam towards the end. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member so funny and well played, loved it!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
