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."

‑ 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
