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.

Mother-daughter switch is fun comedic chaos.

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.

Cute and innocently funny, with engaging turns from a beautifully silly Curtis, and Lindsay Lohan as a 21st century high school heroine.

Nothing's really wrong here, but nor are there surprises.
January 15, 2004
A funny and energetic body-swap comedy, with a nicely warm and sympathetic approach.
December 15, 2003
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.
October 3, 2003
Updated and overly sexed, this remake is heavy on the set-up and light on laughs.

Stories about role reversals are usually about teaching both sides a lesson in humility and appreciation. Here, all the lessons are for frumpy adults who’ve forgotten about rock and roll.

But another, and far more fruitful, trademark of the young director is a snide subversive side that tends to make even the simplest and most familiar of stories slightly surreal.
August 8, 2003
A likable but flimsy retread that's barely worth the effort.
August 8, 2003
The material here may not be the freshest, but screenwriters Heather Hach and the redoubtable Leslie Dixon have buffed the dialogue until it sparkles like the finest cubic zirconium, and the cast is game from top to bottom.
August 8, 2003
It's really a family film, deftly updated for the 2003 market, but still sweetly funny at its heart.
August 8, 2003
Cheerful, energetic and on the money.
August 7, 2003
Fleet and funny,
August 7, 2003
Curtis' and Lohan's performances are unpredictable and inspired, much fresher than the movie they're stuck in.
August 7, 2003
Mildly entertaining.
August 7, 2003
Jamie Lee Curtis gives good, goofy fun in this affable remake of a remake.
August 7, 2003
The movie is laugh -out-loud funny and surprisingly touching.
