Do I know you?
No, but I know you.
High school star, never quite lived up to your potential. Sooner or later you all come back to your old school, stand there and look at the picture of the glory days wondering "What might have been." Seems to me you guys are living in the past.
Well, of course I wanna live in the past. It was better there...
I bet you wish you could do it all over again?
You got that right.

17 Again was nothing I expected. The trigger that made me actually go and watch it in the Cinema was the fact that the jokes shown on the trailers were hilarious. The film was better.
I was laughing so much, that I missed in between dialogue by some of the characters and it was the perfect film to help you unwind after doing a days worth of work or revision.
When the opening scene started, I was so worried that the whole film was going to turn out as some kind of adaptation of high school musical and there'd be a song every 15 minutes. But it wasn't the case.
This Movie really proved that Efron is not an Amateur who just dances and sings a lot. It proved he is a skilled Actor and his acting brought back memories of Chandler in Friends. In some places, he seemed so much like Matthew Perry which is difficult to pull off for most Amateur actors.
The only reason I didn't give this movie a 10 out of 10 is because some people I watched this movie with believed it had an 'abrupt ending' but I thought you can't have too much of a good thing.
