"Title: Freaky Friday
Production: Walt Disney Studios, GUNN films
Length: 95 minutes
Rating: PG (mild events and some language)
Awards: #1 comedy in America three weeks in a row. When I went to go watch Freaky Friday I thought it was going to be another classic Disney movie, you know the happily ever after junk. It wasn't, it was different and it ended up being one of the best movies that I have ever seen. Here's a little summary of this outstanding movie.
Tess (Jamie Lee Curtis) and Anna (Lindsey Lohan) are a mother and daughter who don't get along. One day at a dinner rehearsal a magic fortune cookie turns their world upside down.
On one Freaky Friday the two switch bodies and are
trapped until they realize how difficult each other's life is. Will they switch back before Tess's big wedding and Anna's first real concert?
The best apart about this movie is definitely the characters. Throughout the whole movie they are outrageously funny and really act like that is their normal life. You can definitely tell the characters fit their parts.
Next is the storyline. It was really unique and very different. The characters make the movie so believable. Even though none of us would ever switch bodies with our mother's.
Third is the plot. The plot is also very rare to find. It's not everyday that you watch a movie about a mother and daughter switching bodies. The whole movie is basically about the characters trying to overcome obstacles about being in someone else's body.
Last but certainly not least are the actors. I think they were born just for this movie. Jamie Lee Curtis is outstanding, and I have read several times that she is sure to receive many awards in 2004. Lindsey Lohan was also fit for her role but Jamie Lee Curtis stole the show.
Overall I would give this movie **** stars because the whole movie was great. Everything from the actors to the theme was good. The movie was very unique, and the characters are very believable.
I recommend this movie for anyone who likes or needs a good laugh. Like I have already said several times before, this movie is funny from beginning to end. Freaky Friday was also the #1 movie in America for three weeks in a row.
Freaky Friday is the best Disney movie I have ever seen, and is a wonderful remake of the 1976 version. If you don't believe me then go see this wonderful movie for yourself, and find out if mother and daughter are trapped in each other's bodies forever or will they switch back just in time!!!!"

"This film works because the actors are able to play eachother convincingly and to humourous ends. A fine film to watch with your kids (and there are not many like that lately). The best thing about this film is that is fosters an understanding of other people, while being very entertaining and funny."
Hard Rockin' Remake of Freaky Friday

"My wife and I attended the sneak peak premiere for Freaky Friday with Jamie Lee Curtis, Lindsay Lohan and Mark Harmon. Lohan and Curtis play off each other extremely well, especially when the "reverse" occurs. The movie works well in the fact that Lohan's character represents a normal, repressed teenage girl and the kids around her at school could be a snapshot from any era, just that they are definitely based in 2003. Her band Pink Slip sounds like a cross between The Donnas (who are on the movie soundtrack) and Kay Hanley (Letters To Cleo) in the Josie and the Pussycats movie. Curtis' character could be just about any professional adult with PDA's, cell phones and pagers all going off at one time and forgetting the most important thing in her life, family. It was great to see a film with teenagers rocking out instead of falling into the force fed urban trends of rap and basketball. I really hope Disney TV itself starts taking this approach and gets away from the rap for the kids during their video shows.Freaky Friday is an excellent movie for the entire family kids through adults (no swearing) with a lot of funny sight gags and as well as physical humor. Outside of a brief shot of Jamie Lee in a thong, there is nothing in this movie that would be considered offensive, although the movie is rated PG."

"This is an awesome movie! Its perfect for young girls and their mothers. Freaky Friday is about a mom and a daughter who don't know what each others life is like and when they get into an arguement at a chinese restaurant they both read the same fortune in a fortune cookie and switch places. Then they begin to see just how the others life is. When I went to see this movie the theater was packed and I don't think anyone left disappointed. This movie had its funny moments and some sad moments but overall it was an excellent movie and I hope you all go see it on Aug. 6th when it opens worldwide!!!"
