Becky and I took the kids to see the movie 17 Again last week when we were in Tucson, AZ. We saw about four movies while we were down there, so I’m a bit behind on the movie reviews and playing catch up. The Yahoo Movies website at 17 Again describes the movie as follows:
“What would you do if you got a second shot at life? Class of 1989, Mike O’Donnell is a star on his high school basketball court with a college scout in the stands and a bright future in his grasp. But instead, he decides to throw it all away to share his life with his girlfriend Scarlett and the baby he just learned they are expecting. Almost 20 years later, Mike’s glory days are decidedly behind him…”
is a a fun movie about wanting to go back and do your life again because of the missed opportunities then actually getting the chance to do it. The two actors didn’t really fit because they looked nothing like one another, but they both played their parts very well. Leslie Mann was fantastic in this movie and all the actors were very funny.
The story was really good and it makes you realize that you need to enjoy where you are right now. Too many people live in the past, instead of embracing the Scripture that says “It came to pass.” and being in the moment right now. The movie has a very redeeming aspect to it and has a fantastic message about putting God and family first. It’s more directed toward teenagers and adults than little kids and there are parts of the film that were not for our children based on their ages, but most of those scenes went over their heads.
We all thought it was a good movie and definitely worth the trip to the box office.
