Lurking beneath director-writer Blake Edwards’ superficially obvious romantic comedy is a deeply ironic vision. In Switch, after Don Juan Steve Brooks (Perry King) gets murdered by three abused ex-lovers, he’s sent back to earth in the body of shapely blond bombshell Amanda Brooks (Ellen Barkin). To earn his passage into heaven, Brooks must find just one single female who likes him. Barkin brings wry flair to the macho-man-trapped-in-a-woman’s body shtick, with the all-man Jimmy Smits along as his/her oh-so-subtle love interest. In short, Edwards has hit on the perfect video rental compromise, with something to entice both sexes. B+
