I must admit, I was not expecting much from this movie as I was never a Zac Efron fan. But I have to hand it to the guy, he has great comic timing, and this actually proved to be quite an entertaining comedy. Very reminiscent of similar movies like Big
and 13 Going On 30
, so the plot may not be the most original, but the actors do inject some freshness into the whole movie, and the laughs are quite abundant.
Efron is starting to move on from his High School Musical days and this role is a tad more grown-up (because.... well..... he's playing a grown-up), and there are some risque scenes which make this movie just a tad unsuitable for kids under 10. But it's still an enjoyable piece of fluff, and is constantly funny and it does manage to maintain your interest throughout. My only gripe is that Matthew Perry only has about 15 minutes of screen time. (3.5 out of 5, by Carlisle Johnson)
Class of 1989, Mike O'Donnell is a star on the 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 Scarlet and the baby he just learned they are expecting.
Almost 20 years later, Mike's glory days are decidedly behind him. His marriage to Scarlet 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 among the class of 2009.
And in trying to recapture his best years, Mike could lose the best things that ever happened to him.
