Like Father Like Son

Like Father Like Son Information

Like Father Like Son is a 1987 comedy film starring Kirk Cameron and Dudley Moore. This film has a similar premise to but is not a direct remake of the 1976 classic Disney film Freaky Friday. The film is one of four body swap comedies to appear in the space of a year; the others were the Italian film Da grande (1987), 18 Again! (1988) and Vice Versa (1988). The blockbuster Big had a similar premise as well.


Chris Hammond (Kirk Cameron) is a high school senior. He's an average student, a decent track team participant, and likes a girl at school who happens to be dating a jock. His father Jack (Dudley Moore), a surgeon, wants him to get into an Ivy League school to study pre-med. Chris' friend Trigger (Sean Astin) has an uncle who had experimented with body-switching potions, and helps Jack and Chris switch brains.
