Freaky Friday The Musical

FF Movie Poster 1

People may like it, or people will love it and before we swap our bodies with our children, make sure they take a bath. This version of Freaky Friday the musical is one of the best, and it is based on a Broadway play in 2016. The musical numbers were fantastic and entirely different than the rest of the remakes from the past.  The previous movies were 1976 with Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster, 1995 Shelly Long and Gabby Hoffman, and 2003 Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan. They should make another one, and this time with guys in the leading roles, that would be more interesting to watch.

Heidi Blickenstaff

Heidi Blickenstaff is a Tony Award Nominee for Something Rotten (2015), and she had a recurring role as Katherine, the mother, in the stage version of Freaky Friday at the Signature Theater in Arlington, Virginia. She is fantastic in it.

Cozi Zuehlsdorff

Cozi Zuehlsdorf, she wrote the opening song to Freaky Friday at the beginning of the movie in the title sequence. She is known for Dolphin tale 1 & 2, (2011 & 2014) and she has been seen in numerous in commercials and tv shows. She is fantastic. I hope she gets a recurring role on TV where she can display her talent.  

Jason Maybaum

Jason Maybaum he is known for Raven’s Home on the Disney Channel as Levi.

Alex Désert

Alex Désert is best known in Station 19 on ABC, Alexander and the Terrible no good, Very Bad day, The Flash CW (2016 – 2017), and Invisible sister (2015)

Ricky He

Ricky He, he is known for Trial & Error (2018) NBC, and Blurt (2018)

Dara Rene

Dara Rene this is her first Disney movie, and she was fantastic.  

As you may know, the mother and her rebellious 16-year old daughter swap bodies through the magical power of a treasure hourglass. When it accidentally shatters, they must search for a matching hourglass in a game called The Hunt where high schoolers go hunting around the community to find treasures in the city. And possibly find the hourglass so they can return to their own bodies within one day. It’s entirely different from the previous movies, but the plot remains the same. An interesting take of the film.

Cast

So watch the musical version of Freaky Friday! It is currently playing on the Disney Channel.

The Adventures of Baby Sitting

Baby Sitting MP 6 19 2016

Do you want to watch something free next weekend? You can save forty dollars, instead of going to a movie hall to watch the latest blockbuster movie. Who wants to see a dead body in the movie while watching the Conjuring 2: Enfield Hauntings, that really happened. When the lights came on the usher notice a someone who was still sitting on the chair, he poked the body and it fell to the floor. He was dead. That was for real? Weird. Strange. And who wants see The Game of Thrones while one of the female leads was nude in the fire. It got me watching every week. Is that appropriate for children? Finding Dory? That’s an animate movie, it’s good. I love watching animated movies. Just get it on DVD when it comes out either three to four months. And your children wanted to see it over and over again, just put in The Conjuring and that will scare your children. Just teasing don’t do that.

The Disney Channel is marking their 100th entry of original Disney Channel originally movies or DCOM.  If you have been watching Disney movies during the Memorial Day weekend in 2016, some of the movies we haven’t seen for a long time.  These are child actors who started early in their careers they either still in the acting business or ventures in adulthood with family and decided to quit show business to raise a family and have a different careers. And they still get residual checks from their films they made in the past.

The Adventures of Baby Sitting will be premiering on June 24, 2016, on the Disney Channel.  It stars Sabrina Carpenter and Sofia Carson as two competing babysitters. It is a remake of the 1987 film of the same name. 100th entry in the network’s canon of original, made-for-TV films.

It stars Jenny (Sabrina Carpenter) and Lola (Sofia Carson) (Disney Channel actors, if you don’t know them, ask your children) are two personality-opposite high school seniors with a passion for photography. Jenny needs someone to babysit a family because she can’t, and after she switches phones with Lola by accident, Lola decides to go babysit due to her needing to pay a traffic ticket.

The Disney Channel will have a marathon of it’s 100th original movie. They will broadcast the classic movies they have made for the past 10 to 16 or many years ago.
