Entertaining and smart from the onset of the story. Zac Efron and Matthew Perry deliver excellent portrayals, as the junior and senior incarnation of the protagonist. Witty and charming to the end, "17 Again" will encourage audiences to relive yesteryear and to appreciate their past because its what has shaped their present.

Best show I've seen in a long, long time. Oct. 8 2009
By BBS - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Fun to watch Feb. 8 2010
By MissPammy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

Cute but predictable April 28 2009
By E. M. Bristol - Published on Amazon.com
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.
7. If you go back to high school, it helps to have perfectly coiffed adorably floppy hair, nice cheekbones and unlimited access to your dad's credit card.
8. There are at least two other options to two teens having a child of their own, but this film acts like they don't exist.
9. Elvish can bring two unlikely souls together, one of whom keeps swearing that she'll never date the other.
10. Beware of elderly janitors who seem to know everything about you. They may be your spirit guides. Really.

Cute April 20 2009
By LK - Published on Amazon.com
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.

A Pleasant Surpise - Back to the Future meets Mrs. Doubtfire July 12 2009
By The Bigmac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
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.
