Read the book a long time ago. Don't remember if film is as accurate.

Bought the film knowing it was a sequel to Freaky Friday. Unusual, quirky, worth seeing... Enjoyed every minute, even though it does have 80's written all over it. Clothes, cars, mannerisms. Didn't realize Ape Face was Seth Green until I saw the final credits...
