Freaky Saturday!
25 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These things don't do very well when the characters are so unbelievable that they don't pass muster. The grandpa and the grandson are almost caricatures. He is the crazy adventurous rapscallion and junior is a wimpy little guy who is always scared and has no friends. Because the old guy knows some black magic, they switch personalities. Grandpa becomes the suffering little boy, still keeping his own body; and the little boy, cigar clenched in his teeth, heads for the ball field. Of course, the kid is now going to do wondrous things. That was telegraphed back in the first few minutes. Once again, there is no real development of the relationship between the two so it dies on the vine. A weak entry.
