Freaky Friday is a 1995 television film based on the book Freaky Friday.


A mother, Ellen, (Shelley Long) and daughter Annabelle (Gaby Hoffmann) find it difficult to get along with each other, each professing that the other has no idea what her life is like. A pair of magical amulets causes the two of them to switch bodies for a day, after which they have reached a better understanding of each other.

Among many changes from the original, this version of the story has diving instead of waterskiing as Annabelle's main hobby, which again plays a big role in the film's climax.

Supporting Cast

In addition to the leads Shelley Long, Gaby Hoffmann, and Alan Rosenberg (as Ellen's boyfriend Bill), the film features several notable actors in supporting and cameo roles: Eileen Brennan as Annabelle's principal, Carol Kane as twin sister teachers, Drew Carey as a government-paid repo man, Sandra Bernhard as an impatient fashion retailer, Jackie Hoffman as the swim team coach, Andrew Keegan as Annabelle's love interest Luke, and Marla Sokoloff as the school's resident Queen Bee.
