In an attempt to stop Alyssa's father from getting married to Clarice, a conceited know-it-all, the girls get him to meet Amanda's case worker and switch lives to stop the wedding once and for all. Though things don't go exactly as planned when Amanda gets adopted and Clarice moves up the wedding. Written by

The first draft of the script by Deborah Dean Davis
was never read by Director Andy Tennant
. Jeff Schechter
's draft made this a "go" picture with Rysher Entertainment. Tennant was hired, and offered help for the movie's problems. He and his writing partner Rick Parks re-wrote Schecter's draft. Tennant and Parks were re-written by Producer Jim Cruickshank. The studio preferred Tennant and Parks' draft with notes, so Tennant and Parks took another pass. The WGA ruled against any other writer's credits due to biased bylaws, which disallowed writers or directors with partners from receiving credit on features unless in extreme circumstances. None of Davis' dialogue was used. See more
