5 interesting facts about the film that marked a generation

Check out some curious facts about ‘Freaky Friday’, one of Disney’s biggest hits of the 2000s

On August 6, 2003, the film “Very Crazy Friday” premiered in theaters, starring the actresses Jamie Lee Curtislike Tess, and lindsay lohanin the role of rebellious teenager Anna. The film from Walt Disney Pictures in partnership with Buena Vista Pictures was a success among critics, and soon became one of the biggest landmarks of the 2000s.

The production tells the story of a mother and daughter from the Coleman family, who are always at war and can never understand each other. After eating a fortune cookie in a Chinese restaurant, Tess and Anna end up switching bodies and need to learn to deal with each other so that the magic can be reversed.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film’s release, completed in 2023, check out 5 interesting facts that you may not have known about “Freaky Friday”.

1. The film is not original

The version released in 2003 is, in reality, a remake of the film “A Very Crazy Day”, from 1976. In the first production, the actress who plays the role of Tess Barbara Harrisand Anna is made by Jodie Foster where she was even invited by the producer Andrew Gunn to play the role of the mother in the remake, but ended up turning down the opportunity.

2. The story was inspired by a book

In 1972, the author Mary Rodgers released the story that served as the basis for this classic film, called “Freaky Friday”. In the film, the work written by Tess, “Through the Looking Glass”, contains the same cover as the book by Rodgersbeing a small Easter egg that almost no one noticed.

3. Guitar lessons

When taking on Anna’s body, Tess would be forced to act as if she were a teenager so that no one would notice the strange situation in which they found themselves. In one of the scenes, the character needs to play the guitar, as her daughter played. The problem is that the actress Jamie Lee Curtis didn’t know, and had to ask the members of the band Orgy for help. In the end, everything worked out and she herself Jamie plays Anna’s solo in the final stretch of the film.

4. Lindsay Lohan would not be Anna Coleman

These days, it’s very difficult to think of anyone else playing Anna other than lindsay lohan. However, initially, whoever had been approved for the role was Kelly Osbournedaughter of rock star Ozzy Osbourne. However, she reportedly withdrew from participating shortly before filming began. Since then, several people believe that this may have been one of the biggest mistakes of her career due to the enormous success that the film had after its release.

5. Twins from Operation Cupid

After changing actresses for the role of Anna, Jamie Lee Curtis ended up being extremely excited about her new scene partner, especially when she discovered that she had starred in the hit Operation Cupid. When meeting with lindsayshe would have asked “Which of the two twins did you make?”, without having the slightest idea that, in reality, Lohan had played both, and the production had incredible editing work to make it really seem like they were different girls.
