Freaky Friday

Once again we've done nothing productive on a Saturday. Well, I did get two issues of the Phoenix APA comb bound at Office Max. And I was a good little STAR member and made copies of the Open House flyer to put at a few local libraries. Oh, I also vacuumed and tidied the computer/family room. But other than that I did a whole lotta nothin' and it was quite fun.

We went to see Freaky Friday this afternoon and it was cute. Yet another movie that was much better than Uptown Girls. But then it's kinda hard to go wrong with the Freaky Friday premise. You'd have to be a total idiot to screw it up and make it not funny.

The performances were good although this version focused a lot more on the love lives of the mother and daughter. That was an okay change but I missed seeing the bonding between the sister (in the mom's body) and her little brother that was such a big part of the original Freaky Friday.

If you see this movie watch for Mark McClure, Boris Harris in the original FF, as a FedEx delivery man. I thought that was a nice nod to the original and a nice treat for people like me who have the uncanny ability to remember actors.

I must mention that this version of FF has a great soundtrack full of guitar-driven pop covers. Bowling for Soup even covers 'Baby One More Time' (you know, Britney Spears' big hit) and they do a fantastic job.
