    Predictable but inventive. Efron is quite charming in this one.

    An easy, decent film that is aimed at young girls.

    not a bad film but by the end its a little boring. The concept isn't anything new but the film is well cast and often has more going for it then you realise.

    17 Again was not a horrible movie, but I just have amassive hate for Zac efron and I don't think I will ever like him, but im glad this wasnt stupid or cheesy, and actualy was funny and had a good heart to it.
