After Madelyn and Lucy meet by chance, they make a pact to fix their unhappy lives: they will only do what the other one says and ignore their own instincts. But Madelyn has a secret. She knows her husband is sleeping with Lucy, a much younger and beautiful woman. Madelyn's plan backfires when Lucy, an aspiring actress, orders her to play King Lear in a very amateur production with Lucy playing the fool.

This is one of those rarities - and ADULT comedy.

Marcia Gay Harden is super as a wife whose world is shaken when she discovers her husband has a young mistress. This story has been told countless times without the laughs, but here Harden milks screwball gems from Joan Carr-Wiggin's great script.

It's not all laughs, of course, because comedy is best when it reveals real insight, which If I Were You does.

Try it. It's a surprise treat that seems like it should be set in Paris rather than somewhere in Canada.

I'm confused about the generally bad critical reception. Perhaps the film was trimmed for the DVD/download release. Truly enjoyed this one.

Taken in by the rare reviews on the box ! The best thing about this movie is Aidan Quinn and he's not in it enough to make it worth watching!
