All Critics (155) | Top Critics (41) | Fresh (136) | Rotten (19)

  • The original made a fairly dire comedy. This version is much better, thanks largely to a sharper script and the performances of Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan.

  • Maybe it's only adults who'll get teary-eyed -- kids just wanna have fun. And they will.

  • The premise provides a fine showcase for the two appealing actresses, who appropriate each other's vocal and physical mannerisms with dead-on accuracy.

  • Nothing's really wrong here, but nor are there surprises.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • A funny and energetic body-swap comedy, with a nicely warm and sympathetic approach.

    January 15, 2004 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a conventional but pleasantly cosy remake of the 1976 Jodie Foster body-swap comedy. And in the oldest tradition of Disney moviemaking, you can be sure of a few life lessons thrown in between the laughs.

Audience Reviews for Freaky Friday

    Freak Friday is frivolous film with nothing much to offer except fun performances and music. And, that's enough on most Saturday afternoon with the family.

    Freaky Friday...my childhood movie, and its one of the funniest comedy live-action movies ever made from Walt Disney Pictures. Jaime Lee Curtis has such great comedic timing and a heart of a mother in this movie, she gives such a strong performance. Lindsay Lohan's breakthrough role also shines and makes us laugh with her. These two actresses have insane chemistry and charm and its too irresistible to look away. Smart script, a lot of hilarious moments, a great and intentional silly premise, Lohan and Curtis shine in their charming performances, and its a comedy movie where I still laugh my butt off only having 14 years...Freaky Friday still remains one of the best remakes, even better than the original.

    Haven't seen the original, but i'm more than certain this stacks up really well or is probably much better. It's funny and clever and all around fun.

    Whilst bordering on corny on multiple occasions, Freaky Friday manages to charm thanks in part to Jamie Lee-Curtis' pitch-perfect performance and a consistently amusing script.
