In this 1996 comedy two sisters played by Danielle Harris (famous for Halloween 4 and 5) and Katherine Heigl (famous for Greys Anatomy) get a glimpse into each others lives through a twist of fate.  Danielle Harris plays Haley, a brainy 15 year old teenager that gets great grades but has no fashion sense.  Her older sister Alexia (Katherine Heigl) is her exact opposite, 17, fashionable, popular, and a typical airhead.  In a moment of envy Haley wishes upon a shooting star to be Alexia, when the sisters wake the next morning and realize the wish has been granted chaos and comedy follows. Hayley is overjoyed, she gets to drive, friends are everywhere and guys are falling at her feet.  Alexia on the other hand gets as mad as you'd expect for a pretty and popular teenage girl in this situation. This movie takes sibling rivalry to new heights as the sisters try to destroy each other until they realize how well they didn't understand each other. Now their biggest problem is finding a way to reverse the wish!
