Its A Mirror/Phase Thing

Do You See + FT9 comments • 2,282 views

If one can be a connoisseur of body swap movies, then I guess I am one. I have seen all three versions of Freaky Friday (Lohan / Leigh Curtis is easily the best). Both versions of Vice Versa (1930’s wins). Like Father Like Son, where Dudley Moore realises he is short grown up and as a kid. Even Prelude To A Kiss, where Meg Ryan body swaps with an old man and Alec Baldwin has to kiss her as an old man. Ugh! Anyway, this is a long, complex reasoning why I saw Its A Boy/Girl Thing, you have to be completist when it comes to high concept flicks. I did not go to see how bad Sharon Osbourne was at acting*.

Midtable ignominy seemed out of our grasp in October, but the middle of League Two is so tight that we are unbelievably only four points away from the play-off zone (in fourteenth). Things can still go tits up, but since I still think promotion is beyond us, a little flirtation in the FA Cup is a lovely bonus.
