*** Freaky Friday -- Fans of the original 1976 film (Jodie Foster, Barbara Harris) or the 1995 TV remake (Shelley Long, Gaby Hoffman) will be surprised at how fresh it still is this time around. Jamie Lee Curtis -- in one of her best roles -- and Lindsay Lohan (The Parent Trap) are the bickering mom and daughter who wake up to find they've switched bodies. So mom has to go to school, and young Anna checks in at mom's therapy practice. Funny situations, mostly in reactions from others, some slapstick and a message about parents and kids understanding each other. Sweet and a little wild. (ES) Rated PG





*** S.W.A.T. -- S.W.A.T. talks the talk, and S.W.A.T. walks the walk. What should have been a stultifying, unnecessary TV-show remake has wit and grace to spare: if you're into the wit and grace of an intelligently crafted action picture, that is. Directed by Clark Johnson. (RP) Rated: PG-13





**** Don't Miss It *** Worth $8 ** Wait For The Video * Save Your Money
