The wide generation gap between Tess Coleman and her teenage daughter Anna is more than evident. They simply cannot understand each other's preferences. On a Thursday night they have a big argument in a Chinese restaurant. Both receive a fortune cookie each from the restaurant owner's mother which causes them to switch bodies next day. As they adjust with their new personalities, they begin to understand each other more and eventually it's the mutual self-respect that sorts the things out.Written by
The beginning of the end credits are shown to appear hand-written. See more »
Scenes cut from a 2008 ABC airing include Jake singing "Hit Me Baby" to Tess's bedroom window and Pei-Pei's mother attempting to switch Harry and his grandfather. The ABC version instead ends with Tess and Anna dancing with their respective lovers before cutting to Anna's end credits performance. See more »
Fun and harmless remake of the popular 1977 Disney film of the same name.
Jamie and Lindsay star as a mother and teenage daughter, who don't exactly see eye to eye. They constantly argue and don't understand each others livelihoods and problems in any way shape or form. That is of course until they are magically transferred into each others bodies for a day with genuinely funny consequences.
Despite the over familiarity of this type of subject, it is handed with real skill and does more than enough to have you chuckling throughout and basically watching the stars make fools of themselves! Lindsay Lohan is great, but the real star of the show is Jamie Lee Curtis in her best performance for years, she clearly enjoys herself in her role as mother (and daughter!!).
