“I loved the concept with a contemporary touch. Reminded me of an old TV series.”
“It’s been a long time since I was a young person, but both the young person I once was and the old person I am loved this movie and the way it was able to tell this story of acceptance and tolerance in such a smart way.”
“Great concept and a film to appeal to a young AND older audience. Well done. It makes you think about who you are and who everyone else is and who they can be. Teachers empathy, we need more of that.”
“Like A FANTASTIC WOMAN, the film deals with the very timely issue of who we are, self-identity and acceptance. I’m glad to have seen A FANTASTIC WOMAN, but I will tell my students to see this instead.”
“Good film for kids, I get it, we need to find an identity and see things from others’ perspective.”
“Intriguing concept.”
“A wonderful story but oh, could it have used a lighter touch, at least in the beginning. The one comment about ‘this kid does not workout’ was a terrific line.”
“Not the perfect family but who has one of those?”
“A weird subject wonderfully explored.”
“Teenage novel brought to the big screen. The dialogue during her last date says it all. An interesting concept. A spirit inhabiting a new body every day. Maybe a bit too slow and repetitive. Teenagers might like this.”
“Wow, we are a long way from Nancy Drew. Do all teens have this much sex?”
“A premise that could have ended in a ½ hour. It was overdrawn.”
“Great performances by all involved.”
“Target market 12-15? Cute and silly. Interesting for a young audience.”
“A nicely scripted sci-fi/fantasy fable, with some clever plot surprises. Spoiler alert – he wakes up as her!!! Talk about walking a mile in her platforms.”
“Not bad but not for my demo.”
“I loved watching ‘The Twilight Zone’ when I was a kid. Here’s a story that could easily be worthy of Rod Serling script. This is ‘the dimension of the imagination’ and I think kids will love this.”
“Buy into the premise and it’s a great teen fable. And I hope most teens – maybe most teen girls – will do just that. For them it’s a clever story with a wonderful message of tolerance so badly needed these days.”
“Suggests GROUNDHOG DAY concept.”
“Interesting film.”
“I loved the premise of this movie and the way it’s used to explore questions of identity issues and relationships. A really thoughtful movie that is also engaging to watch.”
