Who Says You're Only Young Once?
|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.|

Editor's NoteIn the vein of FREAKY FRIDAY, PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED, 13 GOING ON 30, and other "switch" comedies, 17 AGAIN answers the fantasies of disgruntled middle-aged parents everywhere, as high school basketball star turned average failure of a dad Mike O'Donnell (Matthew Perry) gets to begin again at age 17 (where--bonus!--he's played by Zac Efron). A strangely IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE-style freak storm sends his body back through time to age 17, and since he's been living with his nerdy zillionaire buddy (Thomas Lennon) after being kicked out of the house by his wife, Scarlet (Leslie Mann), she and their kids (Michelle Trachtenberg and Sterling Knight) aren't privy to the change, enabling Mike to be covert father while posing as a high school student, and to tempt his wife into quasi-cougardom. The temptation never gets too far, thank heavens, for Efron belongs not to any one woman but to all the girls enraptured by his star turn in HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL. He's the reason to see the film and he clearly has great fun playing someone much older and squarer than himself (the idea that he will eventually become Perry again is allowed to carry its own melancholy existential charge). Directed by Burr Steers (IGBY GOES DOWN), this is breezy fun for the whole crazy family, with a soundtrack that includes new and classic songs from the likes of Cat Power, Santogold, Kenny Loggins, and Young M.C.
17 Again - Blu-Ray DVD Review

|Zac Efron is a teen heartthrob. If one was unaware of Efron's status and the entire High School Musical phenomenon, simply watching the recently released to Blu-ray 17 Again would be enough to bring someone up to speed. Everything about the movie, from its opening shots to its closing credits, seems deliberately and coolly calculated so as to elicit the maximum number of squeals from teenage girls and to convince those girls' mothers that there is indeed something undeniably "dreamy" about Zac (it's okay, he's 21). ...read the full review|
