Zac Efron, the teen heart throb from the High School Musical series isn't singing this time; he's audjusting his image as a real actor in this movie, called 17 Again. 17 Again is about a man named Mike O' Donnell, who in 1989 gave up a college scholorship and ended up marrying his high school sweetheart, Scarlet. 20 years later, he is 37 years old, his wife Scarlet kicked him out of the house, and his kids want nothing to do with their old man. After a little situation at work, he returns to his old high school where he meets an old looking manager, who asks him if he wished to do his life over again. Then, while he's driving to his best friend's apartment late that night (Mike is living their since Scarlet kicked him out of his house), he sees a man on the edge of the bridge he's driving on. He then goes to the edge of the bridge but doesn't see him. Mike then falls into the water, which is now swirling like a tornado. When he comes out, he has now transformed into his old 17 year old self. This movie is a delight joy to any teenager or parent. But be warned parents, there is some inappropriate thing in this movie, so think twise before taking your young child to this Zac Efron comedy. Otherwise, ENJOY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
