But at what's supposed to be his big game where a college scout is checking him out, Scarlet reveals that she's pregnant. Mike decides to leave the game and asks Scarlet to marry him, which she does. During their marriage, Mike can only whine about the life he lost because he married her, so she throws him out.

One night while driving he sees the janitor on a bridge ready to jump, and goes after him. When he returns to his friend Ned's house, where he has been staying, he sees that he is 17 again.

Principal Jane Masterson:
I'm just trying to impress you. I don't come to places like this. I'm a dork. I'm the kind of person who spends $10,000 on Gandalf the Grey's quarterstaff from the Two Towers.
Principal Jane Masterson:
Yes that does make you a dork. Especially since Gandalf the Grey only appears in Fellowship. He returns in Two Towers as Gandalf the White.

I'm not a big fan of Zac Efron but this film was actually good. Its was entertaining it was sweet and it was very funny. It's a little confusing figuring out who was who when he went back to being 17 again. There are a few funny parts and a few sad parts. I caught myself rolling my eyes at the silly high school girls, they are quite pathetic. The story was entertaining and original, along with the characters ( except the high school girl) But however i felt a feeling of Deja Vu , yes i'm talking about 13 going to 30 it wasn't the same type of story but the concept is the same. I would have liked to see more of Matthew Perry though. But frankly i wasn't expecting that much. I was pleasantly surprised and would definitively recommend this very funny movie. It's entertaining and worth watching.
