Love through thick, thin, young and old?,
This review is from: Prelude To A Kiss [DVD] (DVD)
Peter meets Rita, a bright, slightly unusual woman who he instantly falls head-over-heels in love with. The two have a whirlwind romance and within months are getting married.
At the wedding, everything goes to plan until an old man gate-crashes quietly and asks to kiss the bride. Kissing Rita, however, causes some kind of switch of bodies, leaving her in the old man's body, and leaving him in hers.
On the Honeymoon, Peter realises something isn't quite right when the Rita he thought he knew is suddenly a totally different person than he had married. It doesn't take him long to figure out something happened, and now the woman he's married to is definately NOT Rita.
Even when he does locate his real wife - in the body of the old man who kissed her at the wedding - they're still in a pickle as they're not sure quite how to fix the situation. The only thing that remains the same is that Peter's love for Rita has never ceased, even if she's inhabiting the body of an old man - something that the people seeing this movie will either be disgusted by or entranced by.
While this was listed as a "romantic comedy" I would have to say while romance is the centre plot point here, there is very little to no comedy in this at all. Had it been funny, the movie might have been slightly more entertaining but to me, it just felt terribly sad and long-winded. Perhaps other people will feel differently, but I was disappointed by this.
