The slumber party scene was forced upon Gary Winick at the producers' insistence, over his strenuous objections. He felt it cut away from the Jenna/Matt romance, which was the real crux of the film.

Jennifer Garner offers this comedy-romance a refreshing innocence in the title role with her playful awe as a 13 year old who wakes up to be 30. There are the funny comments, good ones and then there are the more serious moments, somber and sad moments, even tender moments particularly between mother and daughter. We learn about how people can change, what some people can become. This entertaining movie has its own charm and wit, a delightful date movie with an uplifting as well as delightful performance by Jennifer. While not breaking any real new barrier, Jennifer's acting and script raises this comedy romance above others of its kind, lifting the bar and offering a solid and witty experience for female movie-goers and those that accompany them. Seven out of Ten Stars.
