What would you do if you got a second shot at life? Mike's glory days are decidedly behind him. His marriage has fallen apart, he's been passed over for a promotion, and his kids think he's a loser. But Mike is given another chance when he is miraculously transformed back to the age of 17 and he's suddenly back at Hayden High School where he's the star of the basketball team, a total hottie and a classmate to his own teenage kids.

Didn't like. This has been done before, and they did it better. I got bored, I looking for Adult Entertainment, not this. Hollywood mostly targets ages 16 to 25 for their movies, that is where they make the most money.

This movie completely changed how I thought about Zac Efron. He moved from the annoying kid in High School Musical (course, which kid wasn't annoying in those movies?) to being a really funny actor. Ever since, I have been excited to see movies featuring Zefron, because he is a great actor. When he is in a comedy, he constantly makes me laugh out loud, and when he's in a serious movie he is just as great!

A perfect of example of a movie that shouldn't work but does thanks to a stellar, perfectly cast group of actors, a hilarious script full of small, hysterical throw-away lines, and one of the best Lord of the Rings jokes you'll find anywhere. Really and truly my favorite movie!

I love how he was given another chance in life to change his destiny, yet at the end, he still chose to make the same path he did when he was in high school. He chose the girl.

The movie Seventeen Again is about a man who is getting a divorce but is also in a way getting a chance to do his life over. Matthew Perry plays the grown up Mike O’Donnel, while Zac Efron plays the young Mike. He tries to help out his kids in any way that he can by becoming their friend. He then realizes that he’s still in love with his wife and he tries to get her back. This movie is great because there are many components to it. There’s comedy, passion, romance. Even his best friend from high school tries to help him and finds himself falling in love with his best friend’s (17 year old version of Mike) principal. This movie makes you realize that while you’re in high school everything little bad situation can feel like the end of the world, but family and good friends can help get you through them. Mike sees how different high school is now from when he was in it. So much has changed. The bullies have changed the girls have changed. Mike’s wife sees a great similarity between the young mike and how her husband used to look like in high school. He sends her subtle hints. When he finally realizes that he can’t and won’t let go of his wife he explains what he’s really feeling. This movie really hits the heart. It makes you realize that you should appreciate what you have because when it’s not yours anymore, it might be nearly impossible to get it back.
