Critic Reviews for 13 Going on 30

All Critics (171) | Top Critics (39)

Touching and hilarious Jennifer Garner romcom.

Full Review… | August 26, 2010
Common Sense Media

Jennifer Garner breaks character by forgetting that she's playing an awkward 13-year-old girl in a 30-year-old woman's body in this girly comedy

Full Review… | May 7, 2009

Naive as its young heroine, but also as good-natured. [Blu-ray]

Groucho Reviews

The sheer predictability of the plot means it doesn't really stand up to the scrutiny of anyone older than 15.

Eye for Film

A radiant woman looking like she's having the time of her life makes up for a lot of inconsistencies.

Full Review… | July 23, 2007

A rehash of familiar material, but the engaging Garner is charismatic enough to make it magical.

Audience Reviews for 13 Going on 30

...going on zero. I don't know whether it's more annoying watching a rom-com featuring an an immature main character with attention deficit, or suffering through a preposterous premise that no one even tries to explain. Garner was grating; Ruffalo was almost a prop. There's just not much to like unless you regularly fantasize about falling in love with someone unstable.

Love this movie. Actually think I enjoy it more everytime I see it. Has a bit of everything in it. 80's flashbacks, and just a really sweet little story.
