Like Father, Like Son is a 1987 comedy that is an adaptation of the Disney movie Freaky Friday. In the film, Chris Hammond (Kirk Cameron) is a high school senior who is trying to cope with all the stress that his father, Dr. Jack Hammond (Dudley Moore), puts on him. Not only is he expected to get good grades and be a good athlete, but his father wants him to be admitted into an Ivy League school and to study pre-med. To top it off, Chris' dad is trying to get a promotion at work and has very little time left for Chris or his problems. Chris' friend, Trigger (Sean Astin), gives the father and son a brain-switching serum that his uncle created. The father and son have found that their brains have switched and they are now living in each other's bodies. This may be just the medicine they need to understand the pressures and problems that they both face.moreless
