    Harmon and Murray are cardboard cutouts of ideal boyfriends; the only male performer allowed to shine is newcomer Ryan Malgarini, who nearly steals every scene he's in.

    Doesn’t offer any huge revelations about life, the universe and everything, but it’s not meant to. It’s meant to be a fun kid’s movie, and it’s a must see for mothers and daughters.

    The situation -- a mother-daughter mind-body switcheroo -- is as enduringly appealing as it is absurd, and the comedy flows therefrom.

    Happily, Jamie Lee Curtis gurning through a guitar solo (she is Lady Spinal Tap, after all) while her floundering ‘mother’ mimes on stage is amusing.
  5. Freaky Friday commits a lot of sins; luckily, it has Curtis and a few others to cover them up.
  6. 50
    Post-personality switch, the picture does come to life somewhat but proves a one trick pony.
  7. 50
    There's so much EFFORT here to convince us of the switcheroo (already one of Hollywood's oldest ploys) that we soon weary of it.

    The remake of Freaky Friday is terrible, crude, and contributes nothing extra to the movie everyone loved in '76. The casting of the two leadsThe remake of Freaky Friday is terrible, crude, and contributes nothing extra to the movie everyone loved in '76. The casting of the two leads is a mistake, and the script is unfunny and uncomfortable. Watch the original, which is actually a good movie. Full Review »
