It could only happen on Friday the 13th! That’s when the tomboyish Annabel (award winning actress Jodie Foster) switches bodies with her mother, Ellen — and suddenly finds herself responsible for running the household!

BackTrack aka Catchfire on VHS. 1992 Director’s Cut by Dennis Hopper. Starring Dennis Hopper, Jodie Foster, John Turturro, Dean Stockwell, Fred Ward, Joe Pesci, Catherine Keener, Vincent Price. With Charlie Sheen, Toni Basil, Alex Cox, Bob Dylan, Catherine Keener. Theatrical release directed by Dennis Hopper as Alan Smithee. 1990.
From the VHS cover:
When murder is your business, you’d better not fall in love with your work.
Jodie Foster stars as Anne Benton, an artist who see’s what she shouldn’t — a mob assassination. The police want her to testify; the mob wants her dead. So she goes on the lam, moves to another state and adopts another identity. But she can’t hide from Milo, the mobster sent to kill her.
One look at his target and the hit man has a change of heart. He doesn’t want her life, he wants her love. Before long this unlikely couple is on the run from both the cops and the crooks, dodging bullets and trying to sort out who to trust, who to kill, and who to love.

Maverick on VHS. Starring Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, James Garner. With Graham Greene, Alfred Molina, James Coburn, Danny Glover, Margot Kidder, John Fogerty, Reba McEntire, Waylon Jennings, Clint Black, Corey Feldman. Directed by Richard Donner. 1994.
From the box:
Ante up — for laughter and action aplenty! Mel Gibson is sly gambler Bret Maverick. Jodie Foster is a charming scam artist and James Garner (the original Bret Maverick, from the Emmy-winning TV series) is a laid-back lawman in Maverick, the crowd-pleasing hit that deals you a winning hand.
With more twists than a switchback trail and more sleights of hand than a shell game, Maverick is rollicking proof of how the West was fun. A riverboat poker tourney promises a winner-take-all $500,000… and Bret aims to be the winner who does the taking! But first he must cope with the hangman’s noose, a runaway stage, a wily Indian chief, outlaws, ingrates, a bagful of rattlesnakes and more close calls than a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs. So don’t miss the excitement. The jokers — Gibson, Foster and Garner — are wild!
