    An excellent movie that shows precisely the conflict of the relationship between parents and children. And what child ever wished that his father was in his place so he could see what it is? Or even the opposite. A great film with good performances and an excellent script.

    Another dumb comedy involving Lindsay Lohan. It has a lame story involving dumb scenes between the characters. We have seen these kinds of movies before. Very perdictable.

    This was just a cool movie. The script was seriously funny and the acting was good. It was kind of a wild ride. It certainly appeals to everybody. Lindsay was good, but Jamie Lee Curtis was just hilarious.

    Positively insufferable and almost arrogant in its persistent and formulaic tone. Even if it weren't a remake, Freaky Friday wouldn't be graced with the slightest ounce of originality.

    Although the characters looked nothing like they were from 1984 (which was when the film took place), Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan give everyone plenty of laughs as their characters switch bodies momentarily and they have to figure out how to live the opposite's way of life the hard way. Mark Harmon is among the cast.

    The film has two very funny and sympathetic main characters. Because of its good story it gets better from second to second and is the funniest teen comedy I've ever seen.

    The 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.

    Realmente um excelente filme. Divertido, descontraído, aborda várias questões sem perder seu humor impecável. Lindsay Lohan estava bem naquela época, e interpretou a personagem muito bem. Esse filme merece aplausos.

  1. The movie is directed by Mark Waters (responsible for the indie black comedy, "The House of Yes") and mostly, he's workmanlike, but smart enough to get out of the way of the nicely balanced two lead performances.
  2. Turning ordinary life into movie magic is one of the most difficult, least-heralded challenges for any filmmaker. What makes Freaky Friday a charmer isn't how far-out things get for this mother and daughter, but how sweet and distinctly un-freaky a kid, her mom and their love for each other can be.

    Motion picture cotton candy - sweet while it lasts, easily disposed of, and insubstantial.
