Jennifer Garner and Rita Moreno, an unexpected but welcome cinematic duo, are set to star in “Family Switch,” an upcoming holiday movie on Netflix that seems to blend elements of beloved Millennial favorites such as “Freaky Friday” and “13 Going on 30.”
In “Family Switch,” we follow the story of Jess and Bill Walker, a couple navigating the challenges of keeping their family together as their children grow and drift apart. The family’s world is turned upside down when they encounter Rita Moreno, who portrays an astrological reader with a surprising ability to trigger unanticipated body swaps on significant days in their lives.
The film takes us on a time-traveling adventure, revisiting pivotal moments like a soccer tryout, a crucial college interview, and a high-stakes meeting involving a record deal. Rita Moreno’s character, as seen in the trailer, adds a touch of magic to these life-changing events.
The movie is an adaptation of the book “Bedtime For Mommy” and is directed by McG, known for his work on films like “Charlie’s Angels” and “The Babysitter.” The ensemble cast also includes Ed Helms, Emma Myers, Brady Noon, Bashir Salahuddin, Matthias Schweighöfer, Fortune Feimster, and more.
“Family Switch” is perfectly timed for the holiday season, as it will be available for streaming on Netflix starting November 30. Looking ahead, Jennifer Garner has an exciting slate of projects on her horizon, including her return as Elektra in “Deadpool 3” and her role in “Family Camp,” where she portrays a middle school teacher pursuing her dreams. These future endeavors promise even more entertainment for her fans.
