Dating the Enemy is a romantic comedy film that was released in 1996. The movie is directed by Megan Simpson Huberman and was produced by Bryan Brown. The film follows the story of two people who are in a long-term relationship. Julia (played by Claudia Karvan) and Brett (played by Matt Day) have been together for three years and seem to have it all. They are in love, have good jobs, and are seemingly happy. However, despite their best efforts to maintain a healthy relationship, they are starting to grow apart.

One night, while out at a bar, Julia and Brett get into an argument. They are both unhappy with the other's behavior and start to argue about what they think the other should be doing differently. The fight ends with both of them wishing they could be in each other's shoes for a day.

The next morning, they wake up in each other's bodies. Julia is now Brett and Brett is now Julia. They are horrified by the situation, but since they have to go to work and pretend to be the other person, they must adapt quickly.

As they each navigate the other's life, they begin to gain a new understanding of each other. They realize that the grass is not always greener on the other side and that they need to appreciate what they have. They also begin to see the flaws in their own behavior and grow as individuals.

The movie is a classic body-swap comedy that explores the idea of being in someone else's shoes. Through their experiences, Julia and Brett learn a lot about themselves and each other. The film offers a great commentary on relationships and the importance of communication and empathy.

One of the standout performances in the movie is from Guy Pearce. He plays Julia's colleague, Tash, who becomes Brett's love interest when he is in Julia's body. Pearce's performance is hilarious, and his character adds an extra layer of complexity to the film.

Overall, Dating the Enemy is a fun and lighthearted romantic comedy that explores the themes of love and empathy in a unique way. The great performances from the cast, the witty writing, and the clever direction make it a must-see for anyone who loves a good romantic comedy.
