'13 Going On 30'
(Jennifer Garner, Mark Ruffalo, Judy Greer, Andy Serkis / PG-13 / 83 mins / Sony)
Overview: A 13-year-old girl dreams of being popular. During her birthday party, she plays a game called Seven Minutes in the Closet. It's a humiliating experience for her, and she refuses to come out of the closet and be subjected to more embarrassment. When she eventually does emerge, she finds herself five days shy of her 30th birthday, looking beautiful.
Verdict: If you liked 'Big', you'll probably like '13 Going On 30'. While this film isn't as good as the Tom Hanks classic, it has a similar story and offers up a number of laughs. The main twist is that 13-year-old Jenna sees what her future life is like rather than simply waking up in her current life with the body of a 30 year old. '13 Going On 30' is definitely a chick flick. Women and girls are going to enjoy this film a lot more than guys. Women that grew up in the 80's will enjoy it even more because they not only identify with Jenna's 30 year old lifestyle, but they also identify with all of the 80's fashions, music, and references. Despite it being a chick flick, guys will enjoy it because they get to watch Jennifer Garner for an hour and a half. It ends up having a little something for everyone and it's a decent date movie.
