    This film tells the story of two best friends in high school preparing for prom. One of them comes out as gay, and their friendship is tested.

    ""Date and Switch" is a fun and lighthearted comedy about a teenager coming to terms with his sexuality, exploring his life and lifestyle. The film is full of stereotypical characters and situations, but one thing that is not stereotypical is
    that the lead characters are not the super camp queen that is present in many gay films. The emotional climax is a little disappointing, but the fun and happy ending makes up for it. "Date and Switch" has a but of predictability and a bit of unpredictability. I guess that's what makes the film fun." Expand

    I watched the movie today and I needed to write a review right away. The movie is those that love rom-coms and for those that like the typical buddy teen movie. The bonus is that it is a great message and jammed with heartfelt moments. A new favorite of mine.

    One of the best movies that I ever watched. Funny, simple but strong. I love the 2 lead characters. In the beginning of the movie looks like a regular romantic comedy but it is twisted by one revelation that will change their life.

    This 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. Expand

    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.

    Pseudo-sensitive bro-dude rom-com Date and Switch comes out today, and it already feels dated.

    The film's more heartfelt moments are what ultimately work best.
