    It's Friday the 13th, which means we've got superstition, luck, black cats, and crazy, madcap hijinks on the brain. Much has been said about the Friday the 13th film canon and Jason Voorhees, but we prefer our out-of-sorts Fridays with a little less spook and a lot more switcharoo. 

    The body-swap genre is rife for mining, but we are gathered here on this Friday the 13th to pay homage to a very specific set of films. That's right: It's time to rank all of the Freaky Fridays. There haven't been that many, per se, but each one holds a special place in our hearts. Any and all Lindsay Lohan movies before The Canyons do, really. 

    Ahead, the definitive rundown of all entries in the Freaky Friday filmic collection. Now, put your hands on your cheeks and make sure you're still you. Wait a second...MOOOMMMMM!?

    3. Freaky Friday (1995)

    Stars: Shelley Long, Gaby Hoffmann

    Why yes, Freaky Friday did show up as a made-for-TV movie on the Hallmark Channel in 1995. And, of course it starred omnipresent child star of the '90s Gaby Hoffmann who starred alongside Shelley Long. Still, a TV reboot was no match for the big-screen versions.

    2. Freaky Friday (2003)

    Stars: Jamie Lee Curtis, Lindsay Lohan

    The 21st century remake was a welcome one, although it verged on the border of melodrama and camp at times. Also, Chad Michael Murray is in no way deserving of Jamie Lee Curtis' love. Nope, I'm not having it for one second, Disney.

    1. Freaky Friday (1976)

    Stars: Barbara Harris, Jodie Foster

    The original was an instant classic that earned both female leads a Best Actress nomination at the 1977 Golden Globes. Plus, there's just no topping a young Jodie Foster. Apologies to Lindsay Lohan.
