Review by kathy b (posted on 5-Aug-2007)

I haven't seen this movie for years; it's fallen off the face of the planet. I remember that I enjoyed seeing Debbie Reynolds playing a womanizing, scheming man who's been reincarnated into a woman's body. Debbie played the part just right, using a man's mannerisms, speech patterns, and even walking like a man. Tony Curtis was excellent as Charlie's best friend, conflicted by his fierce loyalty to his friend and attraction to this new female form. If the story is a little too neatly wrapped up at the end, we can forgive it. After all, we all love a happy ending.
