Prolific television director Gary Nelson made the Walt Disney live-action comedy Freaky Friday, based on the novel by Mary Rodgers. Barbara Harris stars as suburban housewife Ellen Andrews, the wife of Bill (John Astin) and the mother of Annabel (Jodie Foster) and Ben (Sparky Marcus). Ellen just can't understand what's going on with teenaged Annabel, who hangs around the house making snappy remarks, eating ice cream for breakfast, and calling her brother Apeface. They each make a separate wish

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Good performances struggle gamely to overcome the increasingly predictable plot.
Toward the end there are some amusing car-chase scenes. Elsewhere the humor is clotted by the feeling that the jokes are chasing the reactions, instead of the other way around.
The situation -- a mother and daughter switch personalities for a day -- is rife with possibilities, but since this 1977 comedy is a Disney film, said possibilities are scrupulously squandered.
A kid's comedy classic.
The film is filled with sight gags and features a wonderful performance by Harris.
Quite inspired Disney comedy with fine performances.
A cute little concoction for mothers and daughters.
Disney's golden years and golden girl.
