Comments: The Mayor dies so the town of Louisburg needs a new one.
Amanda is a beautiful woman who needs more confidence in herself. Now she and her grandmother dig up a box her grandmother buried years ago. Amanda gets a mirror out of it and right away you know it’s not an ordinary mirror.
Amanda decides to run against Bret for Mayor. The mirror does a gender role reversal. The town women are now in the men’s roles and the men in the women’s roles except for Amanda and Bret.
As we see the town’s people things are strange. It is a little funny too. The men acting all feminine is so weird.
The movie flows along smoothly and keeps you interested.
Should Amanda and Bret go back or stay in this new place. Do they want to go back? Would you?
Thinks do get exciting as things race to their inevitable conclusion. The ending will make you laugh and smile.
