FREAKY FRIDAY (Theatrical Release USA 1976)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

Freaky Friday—very watchable, cute, and comical—stars Jodie Foster, Barbara Harris, and John Astin (who audiences may remember playing in the 1964 sitcom, The Addams Family, as Gomez). This Freaky Friday does not give an explanation for how the soul switching happens while the 2003 remake of this same story starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan details how the soul switch happens.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This is very well made and worth watching, but know the remake is a little better than this film.
