Freaky Friday - Movie Synopsis & Plot
A mother and daughter somehow "swap" bodies, causing all kinds of problems as the mother, now trapped in her teenage daughter's body, learns just how difficult things can be, and the daughter begins to see just what her mother goes through (especially as a physician).
This trend of remakes is disturbing - why, with so many good stories floating around (do Hollywood executives ever read books?), do the studios continue to redo their own movies that were perfectly good in the first place? Actually, I have never seen the original 1976 version of Freaky Friday
, so I have nothing to compare to, but hey, it was worth arguing about for a moment. This new Freaky Friday
, starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan, is actually (surprisingly) quite entertaining. In fact, it is one of the better comedies of the year. Read our Freaky Friday movie review »
