Storyline

Melanie Welles, a black woman, has been in a relationship with Dave Morley, a white man, for six months. Melanie's friend, Tess, plants seeds of doubt in Melanie's mind after being dumped by her white boyfriend. Melanie questions Dave about this. He says that race is not an issue. The next day, Melanie wakes up to a shock: she is now white. She goes to the hair salon where Dave works, but he doesn't recognize her and begins flirting with her and other girls. She introduces herself as "Ivory Snow." He then asks her out. Devastated, Melanie uses this disguise to find out if he really loves her. Written by Monkey Boy <damhbraz@mars.utm.edu>

This sort of thing has been done before, after a fashion, most prominently by Godfrey Cambridge in the 1970 film "Water Melon Man". In racial terms, a lot of water had passed under the bridge since then, especially in America, but a film of this nature could only be a comedy. Well, some would call it comedy.

This is a fairly weak film but its one strength is the wisecracks, including one-liners. To take just two examples:

"Excuse me miss, there's no smoking allowed in this restaurant."

"I'm not smoking aloud; I'm smoking very quietly."
