Quick Tip by . June 11, 2010
A man is time-warped into being a teen at the point he should actually be a 40+ man, and rights his wrongs as a teen with a rare set of good morals and an unusually sound mind.

      If you are checking reviews on this movie you are not expecting a completely fresh time travel movie...you know the basic idea.       Now for the nitty-gritty.       For once the supporting male friend (Thomas Lennon) is fun and quirky instead of crass and crude.

At 37 he's lost a promotion, is in the middle of a bitter divorce, and his kids don't want anything to do with him. Then one day an old janitor grants Mike his …

Poster
Twenty years ago, Mike O'Connell (Matthew Perry) was a high school basketball star with a great future ahead of him. Things didn't turn out so well, though, and now he wishes he could be 17 again.     This movie is a mixture of It's a Wonderful Life and Big plus every high school movie ever made. Despite the likeable Zac Efron as teenage Mike, the movie is surprisingly raunchy and forgettable, and definitely not appropriate for Zac's tween fans. It makes high school look like …
