“From Manic Monday to...”

ProGood acting, good plot, good fun

ConsNothing major

Meet Tess Coleman, a rather staid psychiatrist, just about to marry for the second time, as the father of her children has died three years previous ~ indeed, her wedding meal rehearsal is just on the morrow. She’s got a nice, charming silver fox for a future husband, a great house, a loveably...

Sad but true, I’ve been waiting to see Freaky Friday since January, I remember stumbling onto a site which informed me of this movie, as soon as I read the information I was as excited as anything, yes, yes I really should grow up and watch more intellectual movies but I’m just a huge fan of...

“"I Just Needed A Ride..."”

Pro-

Cons-

On a recent trip to the cinema to see Freaky Friday I can honestly say I wasn’t expecting too much. I’d watched the original at least ten times, and it was a favourite in my childhood. I didn’t think the re-make would live up to the original and only went to simply get out of...

“Freakily Good”

published 26/03/2008

ProJamie Lee Curtis, it makes you laugh

ConsLohan's acting isn't the best.

My 200th review, wow!! On Easter Monday, whilst very bored, I sat flicking through the television channels for something decent to watch. As is always the case in England on a bank holiday, there was absolutely nothing, even on the hundred and something channels we receive through Sky. I did see...

“Body swap comedy”

published 28/05/2009

ProSome laugh out loud moments

ConsNothing special in places

Freaky Friday is a body swap film much in the same vein as Vice Versa, where two people swap bodies through some supernatural means and then struggle through as each of them try to come to comes with the swap as well realising ways of enjoying themselves a little bit more than usual! Jamie Lee...

ProIt's light hearted good fun!

ConsNone really

Well, I must admit that when my partner came home with this DVD nestled in his palm, on loan from a 'friend' at work, my heart dropped. I put him off watching for a couple of days and then the inevitable happened, we watched the movie. I had seen the trailers for this movie and had thought, oh no...

ConsHighly implausible story

The 2003 version of "Freaky Friday" is a remake of the 1977 original, which featured Jodie Foster and Barbara Harris. I have a soft spot for the original movie - it's one of those role reversal stories which came along before most of the others (in the 80s, around the time of "Big", it seemed...

ProMarvellous Film

ConsNone

When I first saw this film, I must admit, I did wonder whether or not it was a clone of 'Vice Versa,' but Disney made the idea first, well, at least they did in this case and its quite a good entertainment film as well. It's especially good to see Lindsay Lohan again after I last saw her work in...

Being a Lindsay Lohan fan, I was looking forward to the release of this film. Some of my friends were a lot less optimistic, claiming that it might just be another cliche movie about a daughter and mum that fight like cats and dogs. But their minds were changed once they watched it, and the film...

Product Information : Freaky Friday (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

This classic story of mother (Jamie Lee Curtis) and daughter (Lindsay Lohan) swapping bodies is a remake of the 1976 film starring the young Jodie Foster. Here, Tess Coleman (Curtis) is a widowed psychiatrist juggling her job and family while planning her second marriage. She's getting no help from her teenage daughter, Anna (Lohan), who disapproves of her mum's wedding plans. Anna is a rebellious rocker, who plays guitar in a band and would rather flirt with older boys than listen to her worrying mother. One night, while the bickering mother and daughter are at a Chinese restaurant, their fighting is overheard by an elderly Chinese grandmother who curses their fortune cookie, so that they wake up the next morning in each other's bodies. An hysterical series of physical comedy routines show how Tess and Anna are forced to live in each other's bodies for the day, which happens to be the day of Tess's wedding rehearsal dinner and Anna's band audition for the House of Blues. Anna (in Tess's body) goes for a spin on the back of her boyfriend's motorbike, and gives her mum a makeover, and Tess (in Anna's body) stands up to a high school teacher. Jamie Lee Curtis is a comic genius in this challenging role, which requires that she slouch, swear, and flirt like a teenager.
