People’s body swap wish lists for a day

When I think about the movie Crazy Friday, it’s Jodie Foster and Barbara Harris I’m thinking of. I watched the 1976 version on TV several times growing up. I’ve never seen the poorly received 80s TV movie sequels, or the 1995 TV movie remake.

I have never seen the 2003 remake with Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis, but there is so much love for that version that Disney is developing a sequel with the same cast.

Curtis confirmed it on Instagram.

A cameo from Jodie Foster would be great.

The starting point of all three Crazy Friday films is a one-day body swap between a mother and daughter, who are polar opposites.

The ’80s sequels strayed heavily with fathers, sons, a magical TV and a guy named Boris. I have no idea about the musical version – yes, there was also a 2016 stage musical and a 2018 TV version.

Switching bodies with friends, family, or enemies in fiction (movies, books, TV, comics) is a popular plot point. But what if we could do it in real life?

Reddit user Nyancad asked:

“If you could swap bodies with anyone for one day, who would it be and what would you do?”

“Whoever is on the International Space Station right now.”

“Get to hang out in space for a day without going up in a rocket or coming down in a capsule.”

“That would be neat.”

Cashing in

“I would pick a rich partygoer who is known to spend a lot of money, withdraw a bunch of money and hide it for myself to find when I’m back to myself.”

“The amount I get out of this guy is significant to me, but pennies compared to his usual spending habits.”

“Disgusting amounts of loose cash lying around and the guy might think the day I spent in my body was just an interesting ‘journey’.”

Like Zoolander

“Probably some random hot guy trying to talk to people and see how it feels. Are there big differences in how people treat me or how comfortable or confident I am in my own (or rather his) skin or how it feels? like to receive unsolicited attention or interest.

“I know it’s not always sunshine and rainbows, but I want to know what it feels like to look really attractive and good-looking.”

“Just for one day.”

“I’m fully aware of how tiring it can be to get all that attention, being an introvert myself. But if it’s just for one day – because I’ve never had any interest or attention before – I wouldn’t would like to experience.”
