I’m actually surprised that I enjoyed this movie a great deal! Zac Efron plays the 17 year old version of Mike O’Donnell (Matthew Perry). With the help of a mysterious janitor, a black American Express card and an adult’s knowledge of life, Mike gets to return to high school.
Mike gets to see what is really going on in his kids’ lives. He is certainly not happy about any of it. Mike is determined to change the paths that his kids are on, while getting back to his adult self.
17 Again was a lot of fun. Zac Efron doesn’t take it all too seriously. The movie makes its point in a humorous, light-hearted way. So-go see it, and have fun.
