Channel24 interviews SA director, Oliver Schmitz, about his new film, Shepherds and Butchers

Dr Luke has refuted allegations that he abused Kesha by "pressuring" her into starving herself

Freaky Friday

2006-03-30 12:13

Dr. Tess Coleman (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her fifteen-year-old daughter, Anna (Lindsay Lohan), are not getting along. They don't see eye-to-eye on clothes, hair, music, and certainly not on each other's taste in men.

One Thursday evening, their disagreements reach a fever pitch - Anna is incensed that her mother doesn't support her musical aspirations and Tess, a widow about to remarry, can't see why Anna won't give her fiance (Mark Harmon) a break. Everything soon changes when two identical Chinese Fortune cookies cause a little mystic mayhem.

The next morning, their Friday gets freaky when Tess and Anna find themselves inside the other's body. As they're literally forced to walk in each other's shoes, they gain newfound respect for the other's point of view. But with Tess's wedding due on Saturday, the two have to find a way to switch back (and fast). Mary Rodgers' classic novel gets a new spin in this big-screen adaptation.

What the critics are saying:

"...delivers scenes we can anticipate, but with more charm and wit than we expect."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"In a dreadful summer of obnoxiously aggressive and empty sequels, it's refreshing to find a quaint comedy extolling the virtues of thoughtful consideration and selfless love."
- Nicholas Schager, Slant

"Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan not only inhabit their characters with charm and liveliness, they have excellent comedic chemistry with each other."
- John Murray, Fantastica Daily

Disney have managed, with the help of Jamie Lee Curtis, to reintroduce vitality into Hollywood's most cliched genre - the body-switching movie. Great fun!
