Freaky Friday

Genre: Comedy/Drama
Director: Mark S. Waters
Distributor: Walt Disney

Cast: Jamie Lee Curtis, Lindsay Lohan, Mark Harmon, Chad Murray, Stephen Tobolowsky (and more)

Dr. Tess Coleman (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her fifteen-year-old daughter, Anna (Lindsay Lohan), are not getting along. They don't see eye-to-eye on clothes, hair, music, and certainly not in each other's taste in men. One Thursday evening, their disagreements reach a fever pitch - Anna is incensed that her mother doesn't support her musical aspirations and Tess, a widow about to remarry, can't see why Anna won't give her fiancée (Mark Harmon) a break. Everything soon changes when two identical Chinese fortune cookies cause a little mystic mayhem. The next morning, their Friday gets freaky when Tess and Anna find themselves inside the wrong bodies. As they literally walk a mile in each other's shoes, they gain a little new-found respect for the other's point of view. But with Tess's wedding coming on Saturday, the two have to find a way to switch back - and fast.

Even cops dial 911

Genre: Action/Thriller/Adventure/Crime/Drama (more)
Director: Clark Johnson
Distributor: Columbia Pictures

Cast: Samuel L Jackson, Colin Farrell, Olivier Martinez, Michelle Rodriguez, LL Cool J (and more)

The tables are turned when the Los Angeles Police Department's S.W.A.T. (Special Weapons and Tactics) unit must protect a dangerous criminal. A grizzled veteran SWAT officer (Jackson) is given a second chance to cobble together a new SWAT team to protect the high-profile baddie.
“At first I thought that it will be one of those film where the police try to catch bad characters but when I saw it, I believe that its not a normal police film with the dose of action scenes as in other action movies. This one also has some comedy and some very good actors, Collin Farrell and Samuel L. Jackson to be precise. Even though this movie was stretched a little bit, I feel that all action movie lovers should take a look at his film as it contains all the necessary ingredients to suite their taste.” - Viewer Review
