Tess Coleman (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her fifteen-year-old
daughter, Anna (Lindsay Lohan), are not getting along.
They don't see eye-to-eye on clothes, hair, music, and
certainly not in each other's taste in men. One Thursday
evening, their disagreements reach a fever pitch - Anna
is incensed that her mother doesn't support her musical
aspirations and Tess, a widow about to remarry, can't
see why Anna won't give her fiance (Mark Harmon) a break.
Everything soon changes when two identical Chinese fortune
cookies cause a little mystic mayhem. The next morning,
their Friday gets freaky when Tess and Anna find themselves
inside the wrong bodies. As they literally walk a mile
in each other's shoes, they gain a little newfound respect
for the other's point of view. But with Tess's wedding
coming on Saturday, the two have to find a way to switch
back - and fast.
is the 3rd time in recent memory this has been made
- all with the same title. A certain Jodie Foster
was the kid in the 1976 original movie. It was also
remade for TV in 1994 with Gaby Hoffman in the role
now taken by rising star Alison Lohman.
Consider this though... we now live in the time of
the perpetual teenager. Unlike 1976, when there was
a massive gap between kids and parents, today they
seem identical. Music, attitutdes, etc.. it all sounds
the same. In reality the 'mom' would have been brought
up on teenage angst, rebellion and the Sex Pistols.
So will it be that funny to see a her catapulted back
into all that?
I was wearing the type of stuff like in 1981 ... haven't
you kids got your own ideas?"
