Movie Review: 17 Again.  

Posted by: Rowena in , ,

From Yahoo! Movies:

Starring: Zac Efron,
Rating: PG-13, for language, some sexual material and teenage partying
Grade: C

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.

I saw this movie over the weekend and I'll be honest. The only reason I wanted to watch this movie in the first place is because I love me some Zac Efron. He's the one youngster that I would totally teach a few things to...just sayin'. HA!

Anyway, I thought this movie was going to be better than it actually was. It was cute and fun but it didn't have that extra umph to make it a great movie! It was pure cheese but I still watched the entire thing. I thought it was funny in parts (Ned was hilarious) and when Zac cut his hair and dressed like the teenagers dress nowadays, he was a total stud but even Zac's cuteness couldn't make this movie that OMGOSH you need to see this movie good. It was just okay.

Yeah, that's all I have to say about this movie.
