They say it's every teenage girl's worst nightmare, but would turning into your mom be that bad? Find out with Freaky Friday, starring Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis!

They say it's every teenage girl's worst nightmare, but would turning into your mother really be that bad? Lindsay Lohan finds out in the 2003 remake of Freaky Friday. Is this Disney classic freaky-good or a freaky-flop?

Freaky Friday - The Swap

The newest Freaky Friday remake is based on the 1976 Disney original but has been updated for a new generation. Instead of focusing on housewife comedy, this time around both mother (Jamie Lee Curtis) and daughter (Lindsay Lohan) are empowered 21st century women. Mom, Tess Coleman, is a pyschiatrist planning her second marriage, while her daughter Anna is obsessed with her music, image and boys. Neither realizes what the other is going through until a fateful fortune cookie enters their lives.

Freaky Friday - Fortune Cookie Fun

If you're thinking of passing this movie up because it's a Disney flick, you should reconsider. Freaky Friday is full of laughs as Anna and Tess live through the day as one another. Jamie Lee Curtis is such a convincing 15 year-old, you'd swear the body swap actually happened! Plus, if you're a Gilmore Girls fan (or just a fan of hotties,) you're gonna be happy to know that Chad Michael Murray plays Anna's love interest, Jake.

Freaky Friday - Body Swap Blues

There's not a whole lot to complain about when takin' in Freaky Friday. You might think the story line's a little predictable but overall there's enough twists and turns to keep ya interested. It has a great cast and an even cooler soundtrack - featuring bands like Lillix, Simple Plan and even has a track with Lindsay Lohan at the mic.

Freaky Friday DVD Features

So just when you thought Freaky Friday couldn't get any better, it hits DVD chalk-full of fun extras. You can flick through cut scenes and even check out the alternate Freaky Friday ending that didn't make it to the theaters! And if you dig watchin' Lindsey and her pals rock out in this fun film, you'll love the music videos that are included on the Freaky Friday DVD. This disc is definitely worth your allowance!

    When Matt Smith took over from David Tennant I was thinking it was gonna be horrible and then after the second episode I thought he was epicals too.  At first I was thinking Capaldi looked alot older but I like things hes done so far and hes still Doctor Who but the different actor..  and Im thinking hes gonna be awesome too.

    He's around the same age as the First Doctor and a few other Classic Doctors, so I don't really think he's "too" old. But I guess after Matt and David it's a big change.

    Matt Smith was the best doctor. When he first came I was like 'nah, no-one can beat david tennant' but he's definitely my favourite now. Im not sure Capaldi is right for the doctor. He's a great actor but he's too old :P
