Editorial Reviews

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. (Stars Zac Efron)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best show I've seen in a long, long time. October 8, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm pretty picky about movies I'll spend money on nowadays. I fell in love with this movie because, in the middle of so much crud coming out of Hollywood, here is a show that actually praises abstinence and encourages families to work out their problems.

The humor is incredibly clever, Zac Efron nailed Matthew Perry's mannerisms and intonations, and the storyline is charming.

I can't even count how many times I've watched this movie since buying it. I highly recommend it. And of course, I found it cheapest here on Amazon.

OK buddies don't laugh! I watched this film because my wife recorded it on our DVR. This film reminded me of so many of those 80's high school comedies with the body switching premise. The film is not very original, but Zac Efron carries the story with some help from a good cast that keep it amusing. The story of a would be basket ball star (Efron) blows his big chance at playing college ball and getting a scholarship to marry his high school sweetheart who he gets pregnant. Fast forward 20 years and you have Matthew Perry who is stuck in a nowhere job and can't seem to find any passion in his life whether it be fixing up the house, being a good dad or not making his wife feel guilty for the choice he made to leave the big game to propose to her.

While the film is oh-so familiar, I thought Efron was engaging and with the help of comedians Jim Gaffigan and Thomas Lennon, the film is an easy watch with some funny moments. Efron shows he could be more than just a pretty face in this good natured teen comedy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute April 20, 2009
This was a pretty fun movie to watch. I like this particular type of story, so I knew going in that I'd have some fun with it.

Zac Efron is actually a decent actor, and he was far less orange in this movie than he typically is.

He had great chemistry with his costars, played the displaced middle aged guy pretty well, handled the fatherly vibe with his son and daughter in a believeable fashion.
My problems with the movie include:

1) Matthew Perry and Zac Efron look nothing alike. I'm 26 years out of high school and while I don't look 17, I still look like my younger self.
Maybe David Cassidy should have been chosen for the older role, but then they would have had to go for a much older 'older role' which would have made the wife/kid attraction seriously creepy.

2) The mom hardly EVER interacted with her kids. She had some interaction/fondness for her son, but almost none with her daughter. When the daughter and mother were together in scenes it was if they didn't know each other. The daughter is dating a very inappropriate guy who behaves abusively to the son in their own house and neither parent was aware?

Overall, fun movie to watch. Could have been far better if the writers had bothered to script a better plot. Lack of back story on the characters made it hard to really understand the wife's rage, or the children's complete dismissal of the father.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute but predictable April 28, 2009
Plot: If you've seen any body switch/time switch movie, you'll be able to predict what happens down to the last scene. Maybe even if you haven't.

10 Lessons I Learned From 17 Again
1. Scriptwriters seemed to have run out of ideas, so eighties movie plots are being recycled. I noticed this watching the trailers, too. People my age are in need of being taught life lessons that we didn't learn the first time around, so we're going back to the future. (Note to future directors: Stop. Stop already, please. Or if you do so, use lots of irony. Just a suggestion. "Back to the Future" had a lot of in jokes, but "17 Again" squanders many chances to be funny.)
2. If you were alive in the eighties, you'll recognize quite a few recycled scenes including ones from "Back to the Future," "Just One of the Guys," and the original "17 Again." Presumably the switch in age was so there could be a college application storyline. However, if you do the math, they've done some time fudging here. That's the second thing you'll notice. The first is the seeming miracle of Zac Efron turning into Matthew Perry.
3.Taking responsibility for one's actions as a teen will make you extremely miserable in the future. The best thing to do is put yourself and your needs first.
4. When you're in high school, everything seems like the end of the world. But you're really just beginning your life. Actually, I learned this one already, but it's a good message anyway.
5. Hitting on your friend's mom is no longer considered cool, at least in the Disneyverse.
6. You need to keep exercising and eating right after high school, or you'll lose your youthful physique and no longer be as attractive to the opposite sex.

I Got this movie to watch with my wife. I was expecting nothing but the typical teen flick, starring one of Disney's prefabricated Child Stars.

Wow! Zac Efron CAN Act! Who would've thought. This guy could turn into a HUGE star in the next few years and a Highly Respected actor if he makes good career choices. The movie was really good too. I was entertained the whole time and wasn't bored for not even a minute.

This movie reminded me a lot of Back to the Future. It wasn't as good (BTTF is a classic) but it was a pretty good effort and a pleasant surprise.

there is no bd live on 17 again blu ray
I had the same problems trying to find the BD live but it is there. Once the movie is started, I hit pop up menu and the BD live option was there. However, I was only able to find 2 of the extras and not the Zac Efron commentary. Can anyone help with that?
