Make sure you take the family to see the remake of a Disney movie from 1977, the very funny film, Freaky Friday. Psychologist Tess Coleman (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her 15-year-old daughter Annabel Coleman (Lindsay Lohan) have a typical mother-daughter relationship – they can’t see eye to eye on anything. The two don’t agree on music, clothing, body piercing or friends. I don’t agree with pain in my, well, wherever. On a Thursday evening Tees and Anna open their fortune cookies and read identical fortunes. The next morning, they each wake up in the other person’s body. Not only does Tess go to high school in Anna’s body and try to get along with mean students, a vindictive teacher, and a wanna-be boyfriend, but she also plays guitar in a rock band. Equally stressful, Anna has to go to work in her mother’s body and plan for a wedding, talk about her book on national television and council her patients. Okay, here is a small problem I have with this movie: Why couldn’t Tess stay home with a sick day and why couldn’t Anna just stay home from school? (Not that a teenager needs an excuse to stay home.) When things begin falling apart during the day they both rely on the other person for help. This film was better then I anticipated. It’s funny, touching and heart warming. Adults and kids over 10 will love it. I heard children laughing, mothers sniffling and fathers, well, eating popcorn. Even though my wife told me to only eat during the loud music, I was able to through back a large tub of popcorn with extra butter. I really enjoyed this film and I’m giving it a Freaky B rating.

This movie has been given a PG rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
