Audience Reviews for The Thirteenth Year


I remember watching this one. It was not complete uber-crap that leads children to looking for forbidden films like Faces of Death or I Drink Your Blood. The film has this boy hitting the age 13 and finding out he is a mermaid or mer-man which is tough.13 huh, is there are reference to puberty here? At least, he is lucky that he is not turning into a werewolf like in An American Werewolf in London. This is definitely a tolerable film from an the evil oligarchy known as Disney. Now I sound foolish!

This is by far the best Disney channel movie ever made, the acting is spectacular, and the plot was surprisingly Disney's best live action plot and that says alot for the crap that Disney channel has shat out

I hated these characters, especially the nerd. He makes real nerds look like freindless fucks (which is NOT true, except for this guy) The acting was a piece of constipation wrapped shit and the plot was just weird. And the "fighting" scene wasn't even a fight scene! It was just the main character and the bully holding on to each other, pushing each other, and dancing around like their bi or something. A shitty, shitty film.
