Second Chance in Life

In 1989, the teenager Mike O'Donnell (Zac Efron) is the star of the Hayden High-School. On the day of the final basketball game, Mike will be observed and may win a scholarship in college. However, his girlfriend Scarlett (Allison Miller) tells him that she is pregnant and Mike does not play the game. Twenty years later, Mike (Matthew Perry) is a complete loser that blames Scar for his failures: he is not promoted to sale manager after working sixteen years in the same company; Scarlett (Leslie Mann) is divorcing him; his teenagers son Alex (Sterling Knight) and daughter Maggie (Michelle Trachtenberg) hate him; and he is temporarily living with his best friend, the eccentric and immature millionaire Ned Gold (Thomas Lennon). Mike nostalgically visits Hayden where an old janitor talks to him about second chance in life. During the night, he sees the janitor jumping from a bridge into the river and he unsuccessfully tries to help the man. Mike passes out and when he wakes up, he discovers that he is seventeen again. Further, he discovers that he has a second chance to fix his relationship with his family.

"17 Again" is another good movie about second chance in life. I believe most of people in a certain age question decisions took in the past and would like to have a second chance to re-route his or her life in that milestone. The cinema makes this dream come true and certainly the story is pleasant for most of the people. In addition, the two lead stars (Zac Efron and Matthew Perry) are nice actors and the result is a nice entertainment for whole family. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "17 Outra Vez" ("17 Again")

More than enough to me to approve

This is one of those Zac Efron movies which made me a big fan of his, where he totally nails it good along with a perfect partner that is Thomas Lennon, who indispensably did a pretty fine job too and added his unique touch on the movie.

17 Again granted us a quite entertaining experience for a concept that is too sensitive to play with, and might go in a really bad way in case of not being handled properly. But the director knew what he was doing, he gave us an indisputably-good comedic movie which I would recommend to my friends.

8/10

I was surprised by this movie, especially in this day and age

I wasn't sure what to expect of this movie but I was pleasantly surprised. The main character, a married father (it's been a few weeks, I'm not going to dig up names) finds himself back at the age of 17 in the current day, in school with his own kids, and in a position to help them out with their problems - something he could not do as his adult self. In the process he learns some things about himself and his rocky marriage which are also valuable lessons.

What surprised me most though was that this movie wasn't some excuse to show the main character taking advantage of his age to do things most 17-year-olds really shouldn't... there was no excuse for 'coming of age' or teenage lust or anything like that. In fact (I'll skip the details so as to not spoil things) when he has the chance to do something like that he very wisely uses it as an opportunity to push a more intelligent course on the other person involved.

It's not a fantastic movie but it is interesting enough that I watched it through - many movies lose me partway. It will leave you feeling good about the characters and happy with the outcome. In all, not a bad movie, and far better in some ways than I expected from a movie in this era.
