I've got the ol' double X chromosome, and consequently, chick flicks aren't exactly my cup of tea. It's funny how preferences go out the window during a romantic relationship, because I'm becoming a bit of an expert on the genre. Until 13 Going on 30, I had enjoyed probably 2 chick flicks out of several thousand. Ok, not really, but it was a very tiny enjoyment ratio.
I don't know what it is about 13 Going on 30, whether it's the script, Jennifer Garner, both...but this is a very good flick. It's often said that this is girl's answer to "Big," and I can honestly see this movie becoming exactly that once it's released on dvd. Jennifer Garner is outstanding, several parts actually made me laugh out loud in the theater of all women and their unhappy boyfriends, and also, I love "Thriller" even more now that I've seen this movie.
To the fellas, pick this one up for your lady, it could score you some points. It's a good excuse too, because this is one movie that any man could buy and enjoy by himself. But we're not going to admit that.
