Hardly the worst of this peculiar sub-genre.

Audience Reviews for 18 Again!

Ready for another Freaky Friday rip off? Of course Burns is funny as usual, but the rest of the cast is boring, and the story is as I said before, over used by this point. Not bad, but not good either.

George Burns and Charlie schlatter are great together, but the rest of this film is just stale recycled material.

As much as I like George Burns, I wanted to give this movie a good review but the best thing about 18 Again was George Burns.The rest of the movie was just something to pass the time away since nothing else was on.1 star for George Burns & 1 Star for Charlie Schlatter's impersonation of George Burns when they switched characters.He did do an alright job
