Two twins, both played by Lindsey Lohan, switch places in order to try and get their parents back together.
I understand that for many this film is a classic, and whilst I thought it was good and had a number of nice moments I wouldn’t go that far. If I were to pick my favourite Disney era Lohan performance it would undoubtably be Freaky Friday, but that’s just me.
I thought the narrative was a little simplistic, though I suppose it would have been fresher upon release when movies like The Princess Switch hadn’t taken the same concept and run away with it. I also thought the film struggled with its characters with the evil step mother, played by Elaine Hendrix, being the most egregious.
I thought Lohan was good in both her roles if a little samey between the two, as far as child actors go she was on the better side of average as her performance didn’t become irritating to me.
Overall, a warm watchable film that isn’t going to set the world on fire but will nicely give you an escape from reality.
It is very watchable
A few funny scenes
A nice ending
A little too reliant on tropes
