Favourite ' Body Swapping' Movie ?

You know movies like Big, Freaky Friday etc where by some kind of 'magic' two characters swap bodies.

There's actually so many of these movies!

I thought Freaky Friday, the recent remake was great ! I also liked the Hot chick

Fairly old one, but I thought Big was quite good. I thought they did a decent job on the newest Freaky Friday too.

Hanks kept the performance child-like without being childish.

Vice Versa was ok. Judge Reinhold playing the drums.

Switch with Ellen Barkin was kinda funny too.

body *swapping* movies

I hope this isn't a threadcrap, but technically, IIRC, "Big" isn't a body *swapping* movie, since the kid didn't actually trade bodies with anyone, he just got older overnight.

So basically: Freaky Friday, Vice Versa (I think, if that's the Judge Reinhold, Fred Savage movie), Face/Off--> body *swapping* movies (though in Face/Off, the bodies weren't actually switched, they just had reconstructive surgery and the faces switched, etc).

Big--> not a body swapping movie.

Carry on.
