By turns rowdy and rueful, The Switch is a comedy with serious ramifications, not least of which is the question, what makes a family? Full Review
This is a romantic comedy, not a sci-fi adventure tale. But the actions, choices and general behavior of the characters are oddly removed from what goes in the real world. Full Review
