Movie Review: 17 Again (2009)

What would you do if you got a second shot at life? Class of 1989, Mike O’Donnell is a star on his high school basketball court with a college scout in the stands and a bright future in his grasp. But instead, he decides to throw it all away to share his life with his girlfriend Scarlett and the baby he just learned they are expecting. Almost 20 years later, Mike’s glory days are decidedly behind him. His marriage to Scarlett has fallen apart, he has been passed over for a promotion at work, his teenage kids think he is a loser, and he has been reduced to crashing with his high school nerd-turned-techno-billionaire best friend Ned. But Mike is given another chance when he is miraculously transformed back to the age of 17. Unfortunately, Mike may look 17 again, but his thirtysomething outlook is totally uncool in the class of 2009. And in trying to recapture his best years, Mike could lose the best things that ever happened to him. Released April 17th, 2009

Starring: Zac Efron, Leslie Mann, Matthew Perry, Michelle Trachtenberg, Melora Hardin

My Review:

This movie is has a good but strange combination of a cast. The movie is in one word cute. It’s probably not going to win any award and it seemed to be targeted towards teen girls but it was still a decent movie. The concept was a fun idea and Matthew and Zac were good to play each other too. There were a few creepy parts where the young Matthew Perry was flirting with the mother but other than that I liked the movie. I would recommend that you wait till it comes out on DVD before you watch it.

MY RATING: B-
