    Nelson's amiable comedy occasionally gets fixated on things that don't serve its overall purpose and is too self-conscious to really shine. But it's a more competent, accessible film than its stealthy theatrical release suggests.

    Date And Switch is a plucky step in the right direction for diversity in teen comedies, but it lacks the extra oomph to stand on its own merits.

    In effect, it feels a lot like the characters at its center — not terrible, just incomplete. A comic take on this premise and these themes feels like a necessity in 2014. Unfortunately, Date And Switch isn’t the movie this day and age needs.

They even went with the time honored tradition of casting actors in their 20's as teenagers.
    Verdict: Its not a bad film, just totally forgettable.

    This movie is wonderful. I enjoyed the struggle for self identity and the complete way the 2 main actors engaged with each other. This movieThis movie is wonderful. I enjoyed the struggle for self identity and the complete way the 2 main actors engaged with each other. This movie goes deeper than one would initially think yet it is also a great comedy. I guess it's because many straight people do not understand the stigma of being gay that this has a bad rating, all I can do is to advise you to watch it and see this funny movie for yourself. It's deep, complicated, humorous and leaves you with a warm fuzzy feeling. I really loved it. Full Review »
