Mark Waters

Stars: Jamie Lee Curtis, Lindsay Lohan, Mark Harmon

The wide generation gap between Tess Coleman and her teenage daughter Anna is more than evident. They simply cannot understand each other's preferences. On a Thursday night they have a big argument in a Chinese restaurant. Both receive a fortune cookie each from the restaurant owner's mother which causes them to switch bodies next day. As they adjust with their new personalities, they begin to understand each other more and eventually it's the mutual self-respect that sorts the things out.

User Review

Want a Freakishly Good Time?

Rating: 10/10

I admit, I was dragged to this movie by my 12-year-old cousin. At first I
thought, "Lindsay Lohan? Who's that? And Jamie Lee Curtis? Isn't that the
'scream queen'?" I didn't want to go, but that was that.

Within the first few minutes of the movie, I rolled my eyes. I thought it
was just a cliche movie about a mom and a daughter that fight a lot. I was
bored. But ten minutes later, the magic began. I found my eyes glued to
massive screen, I found myself "shushing" anyone that interrupted my
connection with the two stars. I was hooked, and that was that.

Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis work wonders together. They have
wonderful chemistry on screen that make you believe that they have, in
switched bodies. Both actresses were brilliant in their roles of switch
reversal. Their acting was so real, their expressions so priceless.
too, was the movie's supporting cast. Enough said. The script was
well written, the directing extraordinary.

To sum it up, this movie was "freakishly good." Pure magic, I tell
