Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 01/01/1992
"...Brash, funny and tender-hearted..."
USA Today - 05/10/1991
"...Ellen Barkin is an itchy-twitchy stitch in SWITCH....She's a physical-comedy sensation..."
Los Angeles Times - 05/10/1991
"...There's a ferocity about Barkin's acting that, in certain roles, makes scenes around her crackle with danger. In SWITCH, Edward uses it to the hilt..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Steve Brooks (Perry King) is a notorious lady's man. He's got a good friend in Walter (Jimmy Smits), but a lot of enemies among the women he's two-timed -- which is why three of them gang up together to murder him. But God isn't sure Steve's ready for Heaven so he's given a second chance to prove himself. Steve will go to Heaven, but only if he can find one woman who truly loves him for who he is. And there's a catch. To be sure Steve doesn't use his manly looks and good charm, God sends Steve back as a gorgeous woman. Now Steve is Amanda (Ellen Barkin) and Amanda is Steve -- about to find out what it's like to be a good-looking woman being looked at by a world of not-so-good guys! Can Steve find his way to Heaven while trying not to fall off his high heels, trying to be 'just friends' with Walter, and trying to seduce a woman who only likes women as a man in a woman's body?

Product Description:

Blake Edwards's updating of the farcical GOODBYE CHARLIE stars Ellen Barkin as Steve/Amanda Brooks, a man trapped in a woman's body. After three of his former girlfriends, led by Margot Bronfman (JoBeth Williams), join forces to murder womanizing male chauvinist Steve Brooks (Perry King), God refuses to admit him to heaven until he can find a woman who loves him unconditionally. For Satan's amusement, God returns Steve to earth in the form of a beautiful woman. After she gets over the shock of having the body of a woman, Amanda blackmails Steve's boss to get his/her job back and persuades Margot to give her some lessons in acting like a woman. With some effort Amanda manages to convince Steve's best friend, Walter Stone (Jimmy Smits), that Steve is now a woman. She even finds that being a woman is useful at work, helping her land the multimillion-dollar advertising account of gay executive Sheila Faxton (Lorraine Bracco), who's looking for more than just a business relationship. Funny and charming, SWITCH features a highly inventive comic turn by the gifted Barkin.
