Deciding she played too rough, he and his mother have made a point of him avoiding Annabel since.

He is a cheerful, charming and handsome young gentleman, and does his best to help "Mrs. Andrews" really Annabel as she struggles through a tough day. He has some occasional breathing trouble, attributed to his adenoids and possibly a psychosomatic reaction to his own mother, which renders his voice nasal, making him unable to pronounce the letters m and n clearly.

Because of this, Annabel has always believed his name to be Boris, when it is in fact Morris. Unfortunately, she suffers the exact opposite misunderstanding when he offers to prepare a "beetloaf" for a dinner party with the limited assortment of culinary ingredients available, and she believes he is going to save dinner by providing a much more sensible meatloaf , but she is won over when she samples the new dish and finds it tasty.

April Learn how and when to remove this template message Freaky Friday has been adapted four times by The Walt Disney Company into films with similar plots.

Another Freaky Friday was made for television, starring Shelley Long and Gaby Hoffmann as Ellen and Annabel Andrews, switched by magical amulets responding to their wish to have each other's lives.

They are switched by magical fortune cookies given to them by a meddling old Chinese woman on Thursday night after she overhears them arguing at her daughter's restaurant. Even after being returned to normal, the daughter is fortunately able to prevent her mother from meddling by knocking over the cookies.

The Disney Channel produced another Freaky Friday television movie, adapting the stage show , which aired August , starring Heidi Blickenstaff , reprising her role as Katherine, and Cozi Zuehlsdorff as her daughter.

A major difference between the novel and the films is the presence of an outside influence switching the often-bickering mother and daughter against both their wills.

Because of this, both serve as protagonists, and the films start shortly before the switch, illustrating the conflict between the two, then follow the trouble both have adjusting to their new circumstances, and the new respect and understanding they both come to have for each other before switching back.

Mary Rodgers also added a hobby for Annabel to the story, with an important competition, for which her mother lacks the skill, serving to bring the action to a climax.

This addition was kept in subsequent versions, although the original hobby of waterskiing changed to other events, and an important simultaneous event for the mother her wedding rehearsal dinner was added to the film. In both films, his name is changed Luke in the film, Jake in the film , and he is already Annabel's love interest, rather than being an enemy of hers. Like the film, both of the updated versions of the characters fall in love with Annabel's mother due to Annabel flirting with him while in her mother's body.

Marc McClure, who played Boris in the film, also has a cameo as a delivery man who is also named Boris in the film.

Stage and television musical[ edit ] A stage musical has been developed by Disney Theatrical Productions , with the music written by Tom Kitt and lyrics written by Brian Yorkey and the book by Bridget Carpenter.

Mary Rodgers created joy in her work and in her life. He hid liquor; he had one-night stands; he composed alone, while Hammerstein wrote alone, at his farm in Pennsylvania.

He was just all locked up in there, grinding out gorgeous stuff. It was not the first such act of serendipity in the friendship with Sondheim: Its heroine, Annabel Andrews, is a messy, funny, grumpy thirteen-year-old Manhattan kid who wants to do things her own way, without her mother telling her what to do; one morning she wakes up having turned into her.

And imaginative. Instead of punishing me for rudeness, or crying phony tears like some mothers I know, she was just going to let me find out for myself.

I could hardly wait. At the height of a few disasters, Annabel cries out for her mommy, and suddenly all is made right: She had the faintest pleased smile on her lips.The Disney Channel produced another Freaky Friday television movie, adapting the stage show , which aired August , starring Heidi Blickenstaff , reprising her role as Katherine, and Cozi Zuehlsdorff as her daughter.

I've never seen either film version, but I'm familiar enough with the plot to know that at NO point in my life would I have EVER wanted to switch places with my mother. It's funny and somewhat realistic, not in the whole switching bodies with your mother aspect, but in the way this family interacts with one another.
