Tonight was the premier of the newest Disney Channel Original Movie Freaky Friday. I thought it was going to just be a remake of the 2003 Freaky Friday starring Lindsey Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis, but to my surprise it wasn’t. The only thing that was similar was the storyline, mother and daughter don’t see eye to eye and they change bodies and have to figure out how to get back to their own body.
The one with Lindsey Lohan, Anna (Lindsey’s character) wants to perform with her band even though her mom is getting married. In the new one the daughter Ellie wants to go to The Hunt with her friends and her mom is under stress from planning and catering her own wedding so she can get on the cover of a magazine to promote her business.
Now the 2003 version wasn’t a musical (incase you haven’t seen it), but the 2018 DCOM version was a full on musical and I don’t know how I feel about it. It was cute, but I don’t think I want to watch it again. I did however buy it on iTunes because I want to grow my DCOM collection. Maybe I’m just judging it way to hard because I prefer the 2003 version, I don’t know but I am going to try and watch it again and really keep an open mind about it. What are your thoughts if you watched it?
