Freaky Friday 2003

Freaky Friday ★★★ 2003 (PG)

Worthy remake of the 1976 Disney original breathes some life into the body-switch genre. Curtis plays Tess, a widowed psychiatrist and mom to rebellious 15 year-old Anna (Lohan). Anna's upset that her mom is about to remarry. Following a fight over said wedding at a Chinese restaurant, mom and daughter are hexed by a cursed fortune cookie and wake up the next day in each other's bodies. After the initial shock wears off, the talented leads seem right at home in the other's role, resulting in more laughs than you'd expect from a Disney remake. Curtis is especially fun to watch, successfully tapping into her inner teen and kicking out the jams in Anna's garage band. Light comedy deftly blends with morality in fun family comedy. 93m/C VHS, DVD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
