Overview

Mark Waters' remake of the family favorite Freaky Friday comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable to the standard full-frame image. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a behind-the-scenes featurette hosted by star Lindsay Lohan, two alternate endings with an introduction by director Mark Waters, a pair of music videos, and a blooper reel. For those interested in the best possible home theater sound and picture quality, the disc does offer a THX optimizer. This is a solid release from Disney.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Based on Mary Rogers's popular book and filmed twice previously for Disney, Freaky Friday underscores the need for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to take its cue from the Golden Globes and recognize performances in a comedy. Jamie Lee Curtis brings all her exuberance to her liberating role as Tess, a stressed-out single mom juggling her psychiatric practice, the promotion of her new book, her impending wedding, and her two children -- her mischievous son, Jake, and 15-year-old garage rocker, Anna (Lindsay Lohan of The Parent Trap). Tess does not appreciate Anna's musical aspirations, while Anna resents her soon-to-be stepdad (Mark Harmon). One fateful night at a Chinese restaurant, the hostess notices them arguing and gives each a very special fortune cookie with a cryptic fortune. The next morning, Tess and Anna awake in each other's bodies and must learn respect for the other’s perspective in order to break the spell. Lohan hits all the right notes playing a buttoned-up adult in teen clothing. But Curtis, whether fending off one of Anna's classmates with a "Stacy's Mom" crush, or rocking out backstage during her daughter's concert audition, hasn't been this funny onscreen since A Fish Called Wanda. Not for mothers and daughters only, the smart and satisfying Freaky Friday is both one of 2003's surprise box office hits and one of the year's best live-action family films. And while some may fondly recall the 1976 version starring Jodie Foster and Barbara Harris, or even the 1995 TV version featuring Shelley Long and Gaby Hoffman, it’s clear that the third time’s the charm with this material.
All Movie Guide - Michael Hastings
Better remembered for its premise and the stellar performances of leads Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster than its script, direction, or stridently wacky slapstick finale, 1976's Freaky Friday has always been deserving of a decent remake. Even if it misses the Big-era body-switching craze by more than a dozen years, Mark S. Waters' inspired update fits the bill quite nicely, allowing for two more great star turns, as well as some knowing observations on the state of the not-so-nuclear family in the new millennium. Too infrequently tapped for her considerable comic gifts, Jamie Lee Curtis has a field day with the role -- or rather, roles: She's understandably clenched as the harried, remarrying widow, and has a brilliant, brusque physicality when her body is hijacked. Already a Disney stalwart at age 15, Lindsay Lohan impresses as well, and in a manner different than Foster before her. Where Foster used her innate smarts to play against her impudent tomboy image, Lohan suggests that both mother and daughter share a very genetic intelligence, just one that's been modified to suit two very different environments -- the trenches of high school as opposed to the couches of the shrink's office. Neither actress overplays her part, and Waters buoys them with plenty of flattering wide shots, cultural references, and catty humor, fleshing out what could have easily become just another impersonal, sanitized, generic remake from the Mouse House.

This movie rocks!! Lindsay Lohan really showed her talent for dual-acting once again. Jamie Lee Curtis was hilarious! When you first see her character, you think she never could lighten up, but just wait until the switch. This is a great mom/daughter movie, but my brother likes it a lot, too. When we went to see it, all three of us were laughing almost non-stop! 'Freaky Friday' is definitely one of my favorites.

I didn't think after the first freaky friday movie with Jodie foster there could be a better movie, but this one comes pretty close. It is funny and interesting. If Harry hadn't been as rude it would have been batter. But overall, it was great!

GET THE 1995 FREAKY FRIDAY
Guest More than 1 year ago
I've actually seen the old Freaky Friday with Jodie Foster, but I admit this new one has got its own pluses. I think Lindsay does an awesome job as a normal teen, but when she becomes an adult, it gets even better! I think anyone could like this movie, but there were a couple of curse words so you should watch it with your kids.

i have to disagree the older one is much better i mean come on your gonna do a remake of Freaky Friday then thats fine but the first one is way better! its a common fact when you remake a movie the orginal one is always better i like this one but the older one i rather sorry i just don't agree with everybody else!

A teenage girl in a band has a crush on the cute guitarist at her high school. Her mother is an esteemed psychologist who is unhappy with her failing grade and multiple detentions and is preparing to get married. One night, a Chinese restaurant, the girl and her mother are given fortune cookies which change their lives. . .

This movie is so great. The older one from the 1970's was great, but this time it outdone itself. It is about Tess,(Jamie Lee Curtis,) who is a busy mother, and her daughter, Anna, (Lindsey Lohan,) who is the gutiarist in their band, Pink Slip, and pushes on with her life along with her little brother Harry, who can get annoying to Anna. At a Chinese restaraunt, a waitress gives them each a fourtune cookie, and casts a spell. In the morning, they get to experience what it is like to be in eachother's shoes. This movie is funny, and I would very much recommend it for the whole family.

It seems that I was one of the few who did not rush to the movie theatre when this came out. I actually saw it on cable and I have to say that I LOVED IT!!!! I haven't laughed that hard in so long. And to this very day every time I see the scene where Chad Michael Murray gets clothes-lined by Lohan makes the movie worthwhile. I look forward to her other movies.

Freaky Friday was a very good movie. Critics are right when they say that it's hilarious.Some movies are supposed to be funny, but they're not-and Freaky Friday wasn't one of them.

this movie is better than the older / original version but then again just a different style w/ different actors makes all the difference. Better actors and acting.
