REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Tue., Jan. 7, 2003

The Alamo has the word of Corey Feldman that this body-swapping movie is his personal favorite among his entire oeuvre. Hard to choose, I know, but this one does feature both Coreys at their late-Eighties pinnacle, as well as Jason Robards as the unfortunate switcheree.
