"I'm seventeen again!"
7 February 2004 | by (Usa) – See all my reviews

I think this movie is really good. The two divorced grandparents who seem to hate eachother's guts realize they still love eachother when they become seventeen.

Grandmother Kat tries to make Grandpa Jean jealous by going out with Sydney, her granddauther's crush, Todd. The popular girl wants Jean, and thinks Kat, who's pretending to be Sydney, wants Jean too.

Sydney has other problems. She loved her life in L.A., only now they moved to the small town, which she hates. she can't seem to fit in, and the popular girl doesn't help at all.

The grandparents become seventeen again by Will, the grandson's experiment which went out of control and spilled onto the grandparents' soap. When they used the soap, this caused them to become seventeen.

All the events happen while the parents are back off in L.A. to help an Aunt with her baby, and the grandparents are "baby-sitting."

I love the music in this movie too. I love the scene where the two grandparents go dancing in that place with all the jazz. I love that kind of music.

Overall, this movie is very good in my opinion. The Mowry twins and their younger brother do very well with their characters. Tahj(sp?) was in a few scenes, but his character played a big part in the story, making the expiriment and all.

It's a happy ending. Grandparents are grandparents again, and planned a wedding- again. :)
