      Audience Member Teen movie (ma siamo sicuri? Sembrano tutti belli che venticinquenni...) britannico alquanto bruttino e mal bilanciato nella scrittura dei personaggi. C'è una diciottenne che si crea da sola "il principe azzurro" con una specie di macchina del futuro in una mostra di videogame. Dopo un'incidente nella fiera, la ragazza si ritrova nel corpo dell'uomo che ha creato... ma poi si scopre che in effetti era sopravvissuta... Ecco il primo paradosso, come cavolo fà una sola entità a sdoppiarsi e vivere contemporaneamente in due corpi diversi?! Vabbè... Comunque il film è squallidino, sia per la regia piattissima (che senso hanno le frasi dello script ridigitate sullo schermo?), sia per delle interpretazioni insipide e una trama ipocrita e senza originalità. A questo punto meglio American Pie... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member One of those refreshingly smart teen flicks, this film is all style and snappy dialogue, with a surprisingly honest ending for once. The characters are a hoot too, with nerdy romantic hero and the girl who accidentally turns herself into her perfect man, with usual mix of the sexes humour. But the villains are ridiculous. And the plot gets lost when it reintroduces the female hero. Justine turns herself into a man (Jake) due to a freak accident, fine. But when it turns out there is still a female Justine wandering around, oblivious to the existence of her alter ego, suddenly the film dips in intelligence and confuses who the film is supposed to focus on. Justine loses any personality she had and fancies Jake, Jake, despite being her, gets erections over women and is ultimately doomed to non-existence, which is lame and obvious. When Justine and Jake interact, it's all schmaltz. It's just another teen-wants-to-lose-virginity-for-sake-of-losing-virginity-can-they-stop-her-in-time plot which must have been done in every film that's featured a teenage girl, ever. And the villains are just so hackneyed, sheesh, what film did they wander in from? Jake works as a lead, with nerdy Chas as support, and that film might have been worth watching, but this is the dull-Justine ride, another teen sex comedy, and it's not worth it. If only they'd stuck to the body swap idea, it could have been great. Well, for a teen flick, anyway. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Boring movie. Nothing interesting. Laura Fraser is a virgin, years for the perfect guy. She like one guy (who I think is really ugly) and ask her nerd friend Luke de Lacey to arrange. But the guy went out to date the school hottest babe Natasha Bell. So the duo went to a game convention. Laura went into a virtual-reality makeover machine to create a perfect guy. Then a gas leak plus a cigarette cause explosion at the site. The VR creation turns out real. Laura become the guy Rupert Penry-Jones. He goes to find Luke for help. The machine salesgirl saw him and reported to his boss. They plan to kidnap him. Rupert is playing basketball and impress Natasha. He is beginning to have fun with his new body. And a date make him realise the guy he like isn't the nice guy he thought so. While cleaning car windows, he saw Laura. That means he is a creation on his own, and not a trapped soul. Laura use witchcraft to make Rupert like her which fails off course. Luke like Laura actually. Laura didn't know how bad the guy she like is and Rupert must stop her. Since he know what is she thinking, charm her with the perfect date setting. When she know the truth, she feels yucky. He go kidnap. Luke trace the address and they rescue Rupert. Using the machine to rectify the mistake, she delete Rupert. Sometime later, Luke saw Laura in bus and say he like how she smell. It got her and she go to his home and kiss him. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Loved this when I was little and the hot guys in it :p Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Very funny very 90's worth warning it for the outfits atleast Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member My enjoyment of RP-J's alpha-maleness would have been much compromised had I seen this before Spooks. Snaps for his playfulness. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
