I've watched it more than once. It cheers me up when I'm blue and the good guys win in the end. What more could you ask of a movie?
Young Jenna has just turned 13; already unhappy with the way she looks and anxious to be popular, she suffers an embarrassing indignation which has her fervently wishing to be 30. Thanks to some wishing dust on the model dream home her obviously infatuated by "not cool" friend Matt built for her, she gets her wish. I thought the early scenes featuring 13-year-old Jenna reacting to the instant passing of 17 years and adjusting to her new, uh, accessories was a little awkward, and a certain lack of continuity in regard to her reactions to new stimuli popped up sporadically as the film progressed. One minute she's acting like a young teenager, and then she will suddenly seem to have grown up into her new age to a significant degree. Anyway, she discovers that all of her dreams have come true: she was popular, and she has become mighty successful in life - actually sitting atop the fashion magazine she was addicted to as a kid.Read more ›
Jenna (Jennifer Garner play the older Jenna, while the talented Christa B. Allen plays the younger) is a girl who just wants to fit in. On her thirteenth birthday, she invites the "Six Chicks," the most popular girls in school. The leader agrees to come, so long as Jenna agrees to do this girl's school project. Everything seems to be going great, but the Six Chicks are conspiring against Jenna the whole time, making Jenna end up in a closet crying and wishing she were "30 and Flirty." The next morning 13 year old Jenna wakes up in a gorgeouos apartment in a 30 year old body.
Garner is excellent in a role that seems tailor made for her. It reminded me of how well Jamie Lee Curtis pulled off playing a sixteen year old in "Freaky Friday." Garner is just as fantastic, if not better. When it comes to movies like this (a la "Big" or "Vice Versa") believability is everything.
It's also great how the story isn't as fluffy as one might think. Jenna is not only dealing with being a newfound 30 year old, but is learning just what kind of person she turned out to be... and she doesn't like it. The premise has obviously been visited before, but this is fresh and full of life and I guarantee you will like this movie. You'll want to dance along with Jenna to "Thriller" because you'll like it so much. Definitely check this one out! It shouldn't be missed!
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.
