17 Again (DVD)

Zac Efron and Matthew Perry turn the concept of Big on its head in this hilarious teen comedy about a middle-aged father who wakes to find he's 17 Again! But attempting to navigate high school is no easy feat for Mike O'Donnel (Efron--High School Musical, Hairspray and Perry--"Friends") -- especially when your own kids are in attendance and your own teenage daughter (Michelle Trachtenberg) has a crush on you, not realizing who you really are. Directed by Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down, "Weeds," "Big Love") and produced by Adam Shankman (Hairspray), this hormonal high-school comedy also features Leslie Mann and Melora Hardin in a script from the writer of Bringing Down the House

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.

This movie is a delightful romp with a lot to offer. Zac Efron is amazing in his part as Mike, with talent to burn. He's sweet but takes no prisoners when dealing with ruffians, and his moves on the dance floor and his agility with a basketball are equally impressive. He demonstrates his acting chops in this movie as well, going from winsome to tough to romantic and all-around likeable without ruffling a feather.

Thomas Lennon as his quirky Star Wars sidekick is hilarious and adorable. His role is more than a supporting one, as his storyline is given more space than one might expect, but it adds a lot to the movie's humor and keeps it lighter than it would be with the sometimes gritty problems that Mike faces with his children's issues and the difficulties of trying to recapture his wife's love.

Matthew Perry's part is too small to do him justice, but he fulfills it well. The movie focuses mainly on Zac Efron's part in regaining what the adult Mike, played by Perry, cannot get back on his own.

This movie is so enjoyable that you're willing to suspend disbelief when you need to. Mike's wife, for example, seeing him exactly as he looked when he was a teenager, is very slow in picking up on the fact that he IS her husband as a teenager, and she seems blandly accepting of the story concocted by Lennon's character that the young Mike is his son. Of course, the transformation from 30-year-old to 17-year-old Mike is another leap, but the movie is so engaging that you don't mind. Watching Mike get back at the bullies picking on his teen children is satisfying, and his efforts to extricate himself from sticky situations are humorous.

Anyone who ever thinks about those teen years and wishes there were a way to go back and relive them again will enjoy this movie. There's plenty of action, some tender moments, and enough craziness to keep you thoroughly entertained. It gets my vote, and I'll definitely watch it again.

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.

The Plot
Mike O'Donnell is a married adult with two teenage kids and wife who is finalizing her divorce with Mike. All of a sudden, in some mysterious magical way, Mike is tranformed into a teenager and he goes back to high school to relive his glory days as a basketball star. The adult Mike is played by Matthew Perry and the young "17 Again" Mike is played by Zac Efron.

The Acting
This movie is obviously meant as a showcase for Zac Efron. He demonstrates his incredible basketball skills, as well as his fine acting talent in this comedy. There are numerous comedic situations involving young Mike, including scenes with his son. For example, in a reversal of roles, the son corrects the father, especially when young Mike ogles his older wife. Too much looking and young Mike gets a rap in the head with a basketball or gets squirted with water from his son.

Leslie Mann plays the wife and mom, and she does it with a delicate balance. Mom, (Ms. O' Donnell), is gracious and usually keeps just enough distance from young Mike to make it believable. Ms. Mann's acting is nuanced and her character is soft, gentle, and slightly off balanced, but in a sweet and ditzy way.

The Smackdown
Smack. Smack. Smack. Smack. Smack. Smack. Smack. Smack. Count them. That's a total of eight smacks. I was cracking up when young Mike was smacked in the face by his wife, his daughter, three beautiful teenage girls, and by his nerdy, best friend. I just had to watch these scenes again and again as it was just so funny.

The End
Enough punishment for Zac Efron and praising of Leslie Mann, just watch this comedy and you will enjoy it as much as I did.

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.
