Running time: 97 minutes

   Site Rating: 1 out of 10 stars 

The pilfered premise of the 2003 movie "Freaky Friday" stars Jamie Lee Curtis and now disgraced actress, Lindsay Lohan, as a parent and child, who switch bodies for a short time, due to a magical Chinese fortune cookie.  

"Freaky Friday" is based on the 1976 book of the same name. The movie is a rip off of the 1987 film "Like Father, Like Son" starring Kirk Cameron and the late Dudley Moore, which is also based on the 1976 "Freaky Friday" book. However, elements not present in the book, were taken from the 1987 film and included in the 2003 retelling.

Ironically, both films and the 1976 book "Freaky Friday" are awfully similar to the 1882 novel "Vice Versa" which spawned the 1988 film of the same name, starring Fred Savage and Judge Reinhold.

The "Freaky Friday" film comes across as weak and superficial, due to whiny over-actor Lindsay Lohan. How someone went from being the girl next door, to the girl next door if the house next door is a brothel, is anyone’s guess. Lohan must remember those days and cry, as it was the beginning of her downward spiral.
