Not Again!
1 August 2002 | by tfrizzellSee all my reviews

Shortly after George Burns' 81st birthday he is involved in a terrible car accident with his 18-year-old grandson (Charlie Schlatter) and the two have their souls switched in the venture. Now Schlatter's soul is trapped in Burns' comatose body while Burns' soul is in Schlatter's body (which was not injured in the accident). The typical insanity then takes place as Burns enjoys living in Schlatter's body, but then he realizes that the fun must stop and that he must do what he can to save his grandson's life. A tedious little comedy that just never does work. The formula is just lacking on the silver screen. 2 stars out of 5.
