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 each other's taste in men. Anna's into her band 'PinkSlip' and there's this hot guy at school, Jake (Chad Michael Murray). Tess thinks her daughter should be focussing on her schoolwork and staying out of detention.
Then one Thursday evening, their disagreements reach a fever pitch - Anna 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 fiance, Ryan (Mark Harmon), a break. Everything soon changes when two identical Chinese Fortune cookies cause a little mystic mayhem.
On the next morning, their Friday gets freaky when Tess and Anna find themselves inside the other's body. As they literally walk a mile in each other's shoes, they gain a little newfound respect for the other's point of view. But with Tess' wedding coming on Saturday, the two have to find a way to switch back (and fast). Mary Rodgers' classic novel gets a new spin in this big-screen adaptation.
