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.

I only gave it the highest rating I could stand because George Burns steals the show as always, but his co-stars sink this tired, old concept down to the bottom rung.
