What would you do if you got a second shot at life?
In 1989, Mike O'Donnell (Zac Efron "High School Musical") is a star on the high school
basketball court with a college scout in the stands and a basketball scholarship on the horizon. But instead, he decides to throw it all away to share his
life with his girlfriend Scarlet (Allison Miller "Take") when he discovers that they are
expecting a baby. He finds himself having to choose between marrying her or going to college. He chooses the girl.
Almost 20 years later, Mike (Matthew Perry - TV's "Friends") is thirty-seven and his glory days are
decidedly behind him. His two teenage kids (Michelle Trachtenberg "Euro Trip" and Sterling Knight "Career Day") think he is a loser, and his wife Scarlett (Leslie Mann "Knocked Up") is in the process of
divorcing him. He's also been passed over for a promotion at work, while his nerdy best friend, Ned (Thomas
Lennon "Hancock") has become an successful inventor and has more money than he knows what to do with. If only Mike could turn back the clock.
Then his wish comes true. After talking with a mysterious high school janitor, he's magically transformed back to the age of 17. Unfortunately, Mike may look 17
again, but his thirtysomething outlook is totally uncool among the
class of 2009. And, is it possible that in trying to recapture his best years, Mike could lose the best things that ever happened to him?
romantic comedy directed by Burt Steers ("Igby Goes Down"), isn't only for teenage girls looking for another chance to watch Zac Efron in basketball shorts. It is also a completely entertaining date movie.
