Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Maybe it's only adults who'll get teary-eyed -- kids just wanna have fun. And they will."
‑ David Ansen, Newsweek
"A likable but flimsy retread that's barely worth the effort."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"What should have been a bland Disney remake has somehow ended up as the most satisfying family comedy for a long time."
‑ , Film4
"While occasionally fluffy and cheesy and just brainless, this is a very good, very well-acted and laugh out loud funny remake."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Cute and innocently funny, with engaging turns from a beautifully silly Curtis, and Lindsay Lohan as a 21st century high school heroine."
‑ Angie Errigo, Empire Magazine
"The premise provides a fine showcase for the two appealing actresses, who appropriate each other's vocal and physical mannerisms with dead-on accuracy."
‑ Ted Shen, Chicago Reader
"The material here may not be the freshest, but screenwriters Heather Hach and the redoubtable Leslie Dixon have buffed the dialogue until it sparkles like the finest cubic zirconium, and the cast is game from top to bottom."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Mother-daughter switch is fun comedic chaos."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"The two featured females offset these distractions by having so much apparent fun that it becomes contagious."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"It's meant to be a fun kid's movie, and it's a must see for mothers and daughters."
‑ Kevin Carr, Film Threat
"Nothing's really wrong here, but nor are there surprises."
‑ , Time Out
"It's really a family film, deftly updated for the 2003 market, but still sweetly funny at its heart."
‑ Jennifer Frey, Washington Post
"A sitcom formula film that tries too hard."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"A hilarious, heartwarming remake."
‑ Kam Williams, Princeton Town Topics
"Offers enough all-around entertainment for most any teen, or even adult, to appreciate through its quick 90-minute run."
‑ JoBlo, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
