17 Again

Western Times - - LIFE -

Fri­day, go!, 7.30pm, PG (2009) Pro­duc­ers of this age-swap com­edy must be count­ing on a fairly young au­di­ence to not see the ob­vi­ous debt it owes to films such as Big, Freaky Fri­day and Sud­denly 30. Af­ter re­flect­ing upon his glory days as a young basketball star, a stroke of magic al­lows a dis­con­tented 30-some­thing (Matthew Perry) to re-in­habit his 17-year-old body (Zac Efron. left) and make amends for past mis­takes. For­mu­laic it may be, but tween fans of Efron will be sure to get plenty of en­joy­ment out of this comic fan­tasy.
