Movie Reviews

Miami Herald - 8/10 by Connie Ogle Though there's nothing revolutionary about 17 Again, the movie is undeniably enjoyable.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 8/10 by Carrie Rickey While the movie feels shelf-worn, Efron's performance is fresh.
The A.V. Club - 8/10 by Scott Tobias Director Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) doesn't always have a firm handle on what is and isn't appropriate; the film makes a few sharp detours into misogyny, and the level of smuttiness is surprisingly high, which may be a function of Efron wanting to grow away from his core audience too fast.
San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Mick LaSalle Often silly but it's an honest, unselfconscious exploration of the conflict between a man's physical and psychological age.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert Pleasant, harmless PG-13 entertainment, with a plot a little more surprising and acting a little better than I expected.
Chicago Reader - 7/10 by Andrea Gronvall The ancient body-switching premise is animated by a breezy script that briefly addresses some of its darker implications.
Premiere - 6/10 by Krista Soriano In the scenes where Efron isn't on screen, things tend to get boring. Plus, we could've lived without having watched so many scenes where Zac is showing off his basketball skills.
New York Daily News - 6/10 by Elizabeth Weitzman Though Mann and Perry are game, it's Efron who carries the movie.
USA Today - 6/10 by Claudia Puig For a swoon-fest aimed at tweens, 17 Again has a lot going for it.
Charlotte Observer - 6/10 by Roger Moore As a remake of "It's a Wonderful Life" or "Back to the Future," the movies it borrows from most heavily, the relive-your-senior-year comedy 17 Again falls a little short of the mark. But as a funny, sweet and smart star vehicle tailored for Zac "High School Musical" Efron, it's right on the money.
New York Post - 5/10 by Lou Lumenick This laugh-starved twist on "Big" and the many lesser body-swapping comedies of the era is basically a lecture on sexual abstinence.
Boston Globe - 5/10 by Ty Burr The movie itself is petrified meatloaf. It's a body-transference comedy in the vein of "Big," "Freaky Friday," and other candidates for Turner Classics.
