Sincerely sweet and charming...
Verified purchase
Yes, it has the same body-switching teen-movie tropes as every other film in the genre, with the slight change that it's two teenagers from "different sides of the tracks." The plot is the mundane bit on walking a mile in someone else's shoes, complete with the played out stereotypes of dumb jocks, slutty popular girls, too-smart-for-cliques-geeks, etc, but there's something sincerely sweet and charming about the film and the way the actors throw themselves into pantomiming one another.

There's a little more depth to the script than one would imagine, and it's surprisingly well done for what it is. Definitely worth a watch if you're okay with the genre.

Anchor Bay release is edited and censored.
Verified purchase
The charm of this film was the balance between crude humor and sweetness. It never should have been rated PG 13. It's an R film. That is before the butchering job done by Anchor Bay. This cut censored some of the nudity and foul language, while other such scenes were intact. In general I found this version wimpy.

NOT PG-13! Should be Rated R!!!!
Verified purchase
Watched this with my 13-year-old based on the PG-13 rating. Oh. My. Gosh. How horrible! This should be an “R” rated movie. At least. Shows erections through boxers, full frontal female nudity, male rear nudity, and TONS of overt, crude sexual references. BEWARE!

An Amusing Tale of Empathy (Possible Spoilers)
Verified purchase
Aa many reviewers mentioned, this movie probably should have been rated R. Full frontal nudity and the f-bomb dropped a few times. Personally, this took nothing away from the movie for me.

Nell and Woody are from opposite ends of the social hierarchy of high school and live very different lives economically even though they are next door neighbors. These actors played the switched roles with perfection. Each learning what it's like to be the other and what they have to deal with every day. It was funny, sad, and insightful. They broke down the typical stereotypes associated with these characters and created something worthwhile to watch. Don't miss out!

This film has been censored
Verified purchase
This is outrageous, the film has been victim of censorship (either by Amazon or Starz); at keast four scenes have been removed from the original version since I bought it.
I would have thoght that once you bought a film your version should remain virgin without tampering.

Underrated teen film: GEM
Verified purchase
One of the most underrated teen films.
The actors don't use gender stereotypes, but rather base their acting on the other's performance at the start of the film.
Incredible as the teen flick genre goes.
Funny and witty and corny with a touch of adult humor but mostly excellent acting.

Nothing unexpected, except how much fun it is.
Verified purchase
Yes, it's a body swap story. It's been done before. I had this one in my queue because I'm a fan of Samaire Armstrong. I didn't expect to like the movie. But I definitely did. The characters are well enough done that I actually cared what happened to them. There's not a lot more to say. If you're looking for a fun movie with engaging characters and story that are brought to life by actors that did a great job... give "It's a Boy Girl Thing" a shot.

One more quick thing I almost forgot. I ordered it from Amazon right after I finished watching the movie. I like it enough that I want it in my collection.

This movie was so much fun to watch! Laughed throughout and the storyline keeps you invested! You get a few life lessons from it too!

Love a good body swap movie!
