Great movie for anyone who grew up in the 80's
10 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i saw this movie last night at a sneak preview. i wasn't expecting a whole lot from this movie except maybe some cheesy one liners that would get a laugh. the movie actually had me laughing the whole time. the sound track is excellent! the movie has so many references to the 80's! it was great. the basis of the movie is a kid has a break dancing accident and goes into a coma for 20 years. this concept of the kid having to grow up in a hurry reminded me of movies like 13 going on 30 or Big but what separated this movie from others like it is he didn't grow up because of some wish or magic Gennie. the circumstance of him being in a coma and waking up 20 years later was much more realistic.

i definitely recommend seeing this movie if you grew up in the 80's!
