Not too shabby!
20 September 2002 | by peachykeenSee all my reviews

I watched this the other night, expecting it to suck. I was wrong. I actually found it relatively amusing. Everyone wants to go back and change their life and this 34-year old man, Joel, gets blasted back to be about 15, and he gets to relive his life. It's worth the watch as you remember the time that parachute pants, Devo and even Wham! were still in.
