The Absent-Minded Professor Summary:
A bumbling professor accidentally invents flying rubber, or “Flubber”, an incredible material that gains energy every time it strikes a hard surface. It allows for the invention of shoes that can allow jumps of amazing heights and enables a modified Model-T to fly. Unfortunately, no one is interested in the material except for Alonzo Hawk, a corrupt businessman who wants to steal the material for himself.

Whispers: An Elephant’s Tale Summary:
A nameless baby male elephant was just getting used to life in the herd, when poachers kill his mother, so he runs and gets lost. He’s found by a grouchy female, Groove, the sister of a matriarch, who walks off disgusted with life in her herd. Not exactly wholehearted, she still takes the orphan under her wing, ‘till we find your herd’, but fails to find his herd, or a new home with males -who find him disrespectful and mouthy- or her own herd, which nicknames the kid whispers since his trumpeting is so weak. meanwhile the fear for poachers and (that is, in the movie) lions drives them north over the great river, a long and dangerous journey…

If you have anything relating to this movie, send it in!
Variety Magazine gave A Saintly Switch a positive review. Whilst noting plot similarities to Freaky Friday, Trading Places and The Parent Trap, as well as character stereotypes, Ray Richmond stated “there is so much to like about the genuinely canny show that all of the other stuff sounds nitpicky and harsh. Under Bogdanovich’s sure hand, this is a stylish fantasy that leaves you with a smile.”
Sally Hampton's (the writer and producer) experience as an NFL wife (Hampton and Dave Waymer were married in 1981) was the inspiration behind A Saintly Switch. Hampton said she had loosely based the lead characters on their personalities and, ironically, the lead actor, David Alan Grier and Waymer share the same July 1 birthday and Hampton, was born late afternoon of July 29 making her birthday only hours away from the July 30 birthdays of lead actress, Vivica A. Fox and director Peter Bogdanovich. Adding to these coincidences, principal photography of the movie began on June 29, 1998, what would have been the 17th wedding anniversary of Hampton’s marriage to Waymer
A Saintly Switch is dedicated to the memory of Dave Waymer by its writer and producer, Sally Hampton (his wife).
A Saintly Switch is an American made for TV comedy film directed by Peter Bogdanovich and produced in 1999 in by Walt Disney Entertainment, first exhibited on ABC's The Wonderful World of Disney.
