Life Swapping

The latest entry in the "split-personality" genre is mediocre at best.

Griffiths is clearly having a ball here, and her chemistry with the suitably forthright Roberts can be great fun to behold, especially when the two are locked in a wave of simultaneous ardor and angst. Overall, the movie is ambitious in scope and humble in execution, held together by Griffiths' wonderfully expressive face, which can shift in a blink from homely (in the best way) to glamorous. This gift is illustrated once Pamela's slogged through her swamp of issues and returns to a new balance not so unlike where she started. When Griffiths finally beams at the world outside her window, it becomes clear that the litany of insults she chanted over her former lovers was really an appraisal of herself. Her former self.
