Product Description

If you somehow had the chance, would you do your life over? Thirtysomething Mike O'Donnell would. Then one mysteriously magical moment, Mike gets his chance. He's suddenly back at Hayden High where he's the star of the basketball team, a total hottie, and a classmate to his own teenage kids...which gives Mike a chance to go from not-so-good dad to really cool friend. Zac Efron (Hairspray, the High School Musical movies) and Matthew Perry (Friends) are 17 Again and fabulously funny as the younger and older Mike in a good-time time-warp comedy that proves the best year of your life is the one you're living right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nostalgic romp of self-realization. June 22 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars IF YOU LOOKED LIKE ZAC EFRON AND WOKE UP LOOKING LIKE MATTHEW PERRY, YOU'D BE DEPRESSED TOO! 3 1/2 STARS! Feb. 21 2010
By ! MR. KNOW IT ALL ;-b - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
