Neither of the film's two lead actresses, Jodie Foster nor Barbara Harris, performed any actual water-skiing in the movie. All this was done in the studio in front of blue screens. Foster on the DVD states that she trained on water-skis for three days ending up not actually doing any real water-skiing in the movie. Professional water-skiers were used as doubles for the long shots. See more »

It wasn't 100% perfect, but it did entertain me. I will say I also enjoyed the 2003 remake as it was fresh and funny. That said, this is definitely worth seeing. It does start off very briskly, but it loses its way just towards the end, and one or two of the gags were lacking. That said, the script does have its humorous and touching parts, the film is nice to watch visually with nice cinematography, scenery and costumes, the music was nice and upbeat and the premise intrigued me. The direction was also assured, but what made the film was the two sterling lead performances of Barbara Harris and especially Jodie Foster as the mother and daughter who swap bodies for a day. The supporting performances while not as effervescent were also effective. Overall, I liked it, it wasn't perfect, but there are certainly worse movies out there. 7/10 Bethany Cox
