Freaky Friday 1976

Freaky Friday

Critics Consensus

Freaky Friday is too well-behaved to live up to its comedic potential, but sprightly turns by Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster give the body-swapping farce some charm.

Movie Info

Annabel Andrews (Jodie Foster) and her mother, Ellen (Barbara Harris), don't always see eye to eye. After a particularly frustrating argument on Friday the 13th, the two simultaneously wish they could switch places -- and suddenly their wish is granted. Each discovers how difficult it is to be in the other's shoes, with Ellen causing chaos at Annabel's school, and Annabel unable to deal with her mother's domestic duties. The two learn a lot about themselves and their relationship in the process.

Audience Reviews for Freaky Friday

    The best film of "body-switching", that I ever saw. Fresh.

    Comédia da Disney que ganhou uma refilmagem em 2003 com Jamie Lee Curtis e Lindsay Lohan. Um dos filmes mais simpáticos produzidos sob a problemática gestão de Ron Miller nos anos seguintes à morte de Walt, mostra a já clichê história de troca de corpos entre mãe (Barbara Harris) e filha (uma Jodie Foster com 13 anos de idade). Como esperado para o padrão Disney de filmes família dá época, a produção é extremamente leve, apelando muitas vezes para um tipo de humor campy e pastelão que estariam mais em casa em um filme de Charles Chaplin. Ainda assim, demonstra a vontade do estúdio de conectar com uma platéia adolescente ao abordar a relação da filha pré-adolescente rebelde e da mãe super exigente. Não obstante, ainda há um lado perverso no momento em que a filha no corpo da mãe começa a dar em cima do vizinho de 16 anos e a receber cantadas do marido (no caso, seu pai). As boas atuações da dupla principal fazem com que o filme segure as pontas até o fim, especialmente Barbara Harris, que parece se divertir muito no papel. Totalmente supimpa.

    My favourite, and the original, version of the story. The cast is perfect, the movie is very funny, and it's exciting too. I loved this movie as a kid.

    This original is definitely better than the remake. Both Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster are great in the leads.
