Freaky Friday

Freaky Friday. While the trailer is mildly amusing, this remake is NOT the Freaky Friday I grew up with (and is even farther removed from the outstanding original book by Mary Rodgers).

To add insult upon injury, Marc McClure, who played nerdy neighbor Boris in the original and was one of my early crushes, makes a cameo appearance in the remake — while his character is refashioned as the popular guy in high school with a motorcycle.

But if there’s anybody that can make this remake worth watching, it’s Jamie Lee Curtis.

Doesn’t look all that bad. But isn’t the point of the movie supposed to be that they don’t meet and can’t get each other’s help?
