While visiting his hometown during Christmas, a man comes face-to-face with his old high school crush whom he was best friends with -- a woman whose rejection of him turned him into a ferocious womanizer.
Dave is a married man with three kids and a loving wife, and Mitch is a single man who is at the prime of his sexual life. One fateful night while Mitch and Dave are peeing in a fountain, lightning strikes and they switch bodies.

Proof that the film wasn't actually filmed in NJ, when Clark and Chris swerve to stay in NJ so Chris can confront Jamie, the NJ signs read: 24 east to I-78 & Rt.1&9 East. Routes 1 and 9 only go north and south across the eastern seaboard, Rt.1&9 doesn't go 'east'. Also the rule of numbered highways: even numbered run east to west, odd numbered are always north to south. See more »
When Chris, Jamie and his Mom are watching home videos in the living room, in one of the video shots, where there is a close up on Chris' "fat face", you can see part of his fat suit peeling off his chin. See more »
My fiancé and I went and saw this movie the other day and thought it was great! The humor was well-placed and it was great to see Ryan Reynolds in a movie where he wasn't surrounded by tasteless humor every 5 minutes. Me and my fiancé both agreed that the funniest bit throughout the whole movie was the relationship between Reynolds character and his brother. The slap-fights were great and the one moment of brotherly love was simply hilarious. If you're tired of the raunchy humor of the likes of 40-Year Old Virgin and want a good movie for a date or just as a stand alone movie, this one is great. It's got so many things in it that make it wonderful: Tasteful witty humor, good plot, puts you in the Christmas spirit (but also works as a non-seasonal movie), and gives props to any guy who's been put in the "Friend-zone". My fiancé came out of the movie and said "That makes me feel bad about all the guys I've told them I 'just want to be friends'". So there you go guys--if you got a girl you're crushing on and you think you might be in the "Friend-zone" with her, take her to this movie (even if it's just a "friendly date"). It may break the ice and she could see what kind of girl she's being. I found my 'one and only', but I've been in the friend-zone several times, so I was able to relate to this movie in many ways.
This is just an all around feel-good movie. I was very happy with the 14 bucks I spent on this flick.
