"Me Again" is a 2012 Christian comedy film directed by David A. R. White, starring White himself, along with Bruce McGill and Della Reese. The story revolves around Rich Chaplin, a man who is not satisfied with his life and feels disconnected from his family. He wishes to have a new life, a new family, and a new job. He believes that his life would be better if he had a different life. One day, he meets a mysterious man who grants him his wish, and Rich wakes up in the body of the different people he always silently wished to become.
The film begins with Rich Chaplin, a pastor, who struggles with his faith and feels disconnected from his family. He wishes he could be someone else, someone more successful, with a more fulfilling family life. After a heated argument with his wife, Rich finds himself questioning his worth and begins to pray to God to make him someone else.
The next day, while visiting a thrift store, Rich meets a mysterious man who claims to be an Angel. The Angel tells Rich that he can give him a glimpse into what his life would be like if he were living someone else's life. Without much thought, Rich agrees, and the Angel transports him into the body of a wealthy businessman named John.
Rich, now living John's life, is initially thrilled with all the material possessions he has. But as he starts to become more acquainted with John's family dynamics, he realizes that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. John's life was riddled with problems, and the family was dysfunctional. Rich also learns that his wife had been cheating on him, and his son was a drug addict. Distraught by his findings, Rich decides to return to his old life.
The Angel appears again and grants Rich another wish, and he returns to his life but with a newfound appreciation for his wife, children, and relationship with God. He uses his newfound perspective to help others and make a positive impact in the world around him.
The movie explores the theme of self-discovery and self-reflection, reminding the audience to focus on the present and to be grateful for what they have. The idea that we should appreciate and cherish what we have before desiring something we don't have is a moral lesson that is widely covered in the movie.
David A.R. White, who plays Rich Chaplin, delivered a solid performance, genuinely capturing the emotions and vulnerability of a man who felt lost in life. Bruce McGill, who plays John, also gave a compelling performance, bringing to life the conflicted businessman who wasn't happy with his life despite his wealth.

Overall, "Me Again" is a feel-good movie that will leave audiences contemplative and inspired to cherish the life they have while focusing on the present rather than worrying about the future.
