6. Freaky Friday, Jamie Lee Curtis
There is the ’70s version with Jodie Foster, and it is fantastic, but for pure mother and daughter flip-flops, nothing tops this 2003 remake. Jamie Lee Curtis (daughter of another Top 10 movie mom, Janet Leigh) switching places with a pre-rehab Lindsay Lohan is a triumph for both actresses in the way they managed to get into each other’s minds.
The pair captured what makes the Freaky Friday story work — the unique bond between mother and teenage daughter.
What is not to love about a mom strapping on a guitar and finishing out her daughter’s music set for the opportunity of a lifetime. Watching Jamie Lee’s face as she plays that guitar is the actress’ finest moment. No disrespect to that Halloween movie she made.
