PG. 96 mins

A funny remake of the 1977 version – this one is nothing new but it brings more laughs thanks to the talented lead actresses. Lindsay Lohan plays rebellious teen Anna Coleman. She lives with her busy therapist-author mother, Tess, her obnoxious younger brother, and their kooky grandfather. Just as tension begins to rise over Tess’ upcoming wedding rehearsal to a second husband on the same night as an important audition for Anna’s punk band, they are mysteriously transported into each others bodies by the owner of their favourite Chinese restaurant and two magical fortune cookies. Freaky Friday is formulaic, but quite fun and often delightfully silly stuff for family audiences – * * *
