Freaky Friday | 2003 | PG | - 3.2.3

A teenager, Annabel (Lindsay Lohan) and her widowed mother (Jamie Lee Curtis), who do not see eye-to-eye and are always arguing, are magically transformed and end up exchanging bodies. Now they see life from each other's perspective and have to learn to appreciate each other before the body swapping is reversed. Also with Mark Harmon, Chad Murray and Stephen Tobolowsky. Directed by Mark S. Waters. [1:37]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - There are several kisses: A man and woman kiss a few times, a young woman kisses a young man, a young man and young woman kiss a few times, a man tries to kiss a woman, a woman kisses a man on the cheek, and a woman and a younger man talk, flirt and nearly kiss. A young man and young woman flirt, and a man and a woman hold hands. A man pulls his pants down and we see his bare buttock. A young woman touches her body when an older woman has inhabited her body. A woman's low-cut pants show the top of her thong and buttock cleavage, and a woman's dress reveals cleavage. A young woman wears a short top that exposes her bare midriff. Young women talk about "making a move" on a young man.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A boy thinks his mother is dead when she lies motionless in bed. A restaurant shakes and two people are frightened thinking it is an earthquake; another tremor shakes people gathered in a banquet room. A woman and her daughter run into each other and fall onto the floor. A woman and her daughter yell and argue in many scenes. A young woman tackles a young man, a young woman slaps a young man in the face, a woman grabs a young man's ankle and he falls on the floor, and a woman tackles a man and a boy. A young woman pulls another young woman's shirt over her head causing her to flip over a bike rack and land on the ground. A woman flips over a couch to avoid having a man kiss her. Young women playing volleyball are hit in the head with the ball a few times and one falls to the floor. A woman smacks her daughter on the bottom trying to wake her up in the morning. A young woman chases her brother when she finds him with her underwear on his head. A woman drives her car the wrong way through an entrance and her tires are punctured by a pointed grate on the ground, and a woman drives recklessly through traffic swerving on a highway. A young woman screams when she looks into a mirror and sees that she is in an older woman's body. A young woman slams her bedroom door several times.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
