Makes ya wonder...don't it?
4 January 2004 | by counterrevolutionarySee all my reviews

There are two sorts of people who should watch THE SWAP: people desperate for every minute of De Niro footage they can get, and fans of ultra-low-budget grade-Z schlock.

Although not quite in the class of such anti-classics as ROBOT MONSTER and PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, this moronic little flick is certainly up there--er, down there--with travesties like MESA OF LOST WOMEN, THE SINISTER URGE, and THEY SAVED HITLER'S BRAIN (another "Frankenfilm" stitched together from an atrocious low-budget movie and even worse lower-budget new footage).

For a bad movie connoisseur, THE SWAP is well worth the few bucks you'll spend for the DVD.
