How They Swapped: Its a minor plot element in a trope-stuffed movie, but this might be one of the weirdest body swaps in the movies because thanks to some interfering aliens, Ione ends up time-travelling as well as body-swapping.
She ends up in her mums body back in 1992 while her mum nabs her body in the present day. Josh Baskin (David Moscow) swaps his 12-year-old body for that of his 30-year-old self (Tom Hanks).
Because thats how all frustrated parents and children deal with their problems, no?
Consequences: Charlie almost loses his dads job for him; his dad gets him in trouble with his mum, and then gets him kidnapped.
How They Swapped: Via magic, and a botched soul-transfer. Boxer Joe Pendleton (Robert Montgomery) and cruel investment banker Bruce Farnsworth (also played by Robert Montgomery, post-switch).
Consequences: Bit of an unusual one, this, with two people occupying one body at the same time: Edwina on the right, Roger on the left. How They Swapped: After an overly keen angel nabbed Pendletons soul out of a plane crash he was meant to survive, he insists on being sent back to Earth and takes the body of a recently deceased rotter.
How They Swapped: By, um, peeing in a magic fountain and wishing they could have one anothers lives.
Consequences: Mitch-as-Dave nearly destroys an important business deal, while Dave-as-Mitch gets an ill-advised tattoo.
Except Mitch, whos stuck with his I love Dave tattoo. Bodyswapping was everywhere in the 80s, even in horror movies.Consequences: Mike gains a better understanding of his daughter and also realises that hes wasting his life by being miserable, so he takes the opportunity to get his shit together and change career.
