Oh, Lindsay Lohan—what potential you once had. Before the gossip blog magnet was repeatedly getting in trouble while foolishly driving cars and sampling drugs, an upstart Lohan gave an Emma-Stone-in-Easy-A style performance in the cheerfully vigorous family comedy Freaky Friday.
A new spin on Jodie Foster’s charming 1976 hit, Freaky Friday finds Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis swapping bodies in the age-old switcheroo, leaving the young redhead in a string of grown-up situations, all of which require her to appear wise beyond her years. And she’s delightful the entire way. So what the hell happened?
