Vice Versa finds Judge Reinhold, a tony Chicago department store exec named Marshall, and his junior high school age son, Charlie (Fred Savage), ending up with each other’s personalities after they both touch a mystical oriental skull.

Reinhold is in his element acting like an 11-year-old more interested in heavy metal rock and his pet frog than girls and other yucky things. The store’s chief honcho is ready to fire him, but his fellow execs, all coveting his job, are relishing his antics.

Things get a bit too sappy, though, with his lovestruck girlfriend, Sam (Corinne Bohrer); the more immature he acts, the more enamored she becomes.

It is really Savage, best known for his role as the little boy in The Princess Bride, who is particularly winsome as the smart-alecky Dad stuck in his kid’s pint-size body. Except for the overuse of profanity for Savage’s character, this is fun family fare.
