Zac Efron Plus 20 Years

I was not anticipating what this review of 17 Again has to say. You mean I’ve seen this movie (aka Big aka 13 Going on 30) before? Never saw that one coming. On the plus side, the review also features the best lead sentence that I’ve read in a review in quite some time.

Review: You’ve seen 17 Again — again and again17 Again is one of those movies that requires you to suspend all disbelief and assume that someone who looks like Zac Efron could, in 20 years, turn into someone who looks like Matthew Perry.

Zac Efron becoming Matthew Perry is pretty scary! I’ve never thought of it that way before. This movie is a warning for our future!

All kidding aside, it is a good review. And quite honestly, I will most likely see this movie (sad and embarassing but true). Zac Efron is just too dreamy for me to ignore.

Spring Movie Preview has a guide to April and May’s movie releases. Here are some of the movies they highlighted (and the ones I will most likely see).

17 Again

When: April 17
Why I’ll see it: It’s 13 Going on 30 except with Zac Efron, who is a huge guilty pleasure of mine.

The Soloist

When: April 24
Why: The trailer makes the movie look really good – or just really uplifting. And sometimes I need to see a cheerful movie.

Star Trek



When: May 29
Why: It’s a Pixar animated movie. You would be stupid not to see it. I’ll be at Cannes when it premieres. Although I probably won’t see it there, it will be cool to say that I was at Cannes when it premiered.
