Swap Those Movie Casts

Can you think of two movies where the primary casts could fairly easily take all the roles (or at least most of them) in the other movie? Fairly recently I watched Clue: The Movie a day after watching Noises Off. Same number of principle actors, similar roles available in each movie. The swaps wouldn't necessarily role-for-role:

Michael Caine as Wadsworth : : : Tim Curry as Lloyd Fellows
Carol Burnett as Mrs. Peacock : : : Eileen Brennan as Dotty/Mrs. Clackett
John Ritter as Col. Mustard : : : Michael McKean as Gary/Roger
Christopher Reeve as Mr. Green : : : Christopher Lloyd as Fredrick Dallas/Phillip Brent
Marilu Henner as Mrs. Scarlet : : : Leslie Ann Warren as Belinda Blair/Flavia Brent
Nicollette Sheridan as Yvette : : : Madeline Kahn as Poppy Taylor
Denholm Elliott as Prof. Plum : : : Martin Mull as Selsdon/The Burgler
Julie Hagerty as Mrs. White : : : Colleen Camp as Brooke/Vicki
Mark Linn-Baker as Mr. Body : : : Lee Ving? as Tim Allgood

OK, so it isn't perfect. Your turn.
