17 Again

On Wednesday night, after Pink and I met at Pinkberry to have our favorite meal (yes, meal) and catch up on life, we decided to go see "17 Again."

We had gone to see "Confessions of a Shopaholic" a few weeks ago and had seen this preview that had us both laughing out loud. We are also both fans of Matthew Perry and of course, who doesn't love a little Zac Efron? I had had a rough work week so it was the perfect distraction from life.

The premise is that Matthew Perry's character who is thirty-something is disappointed with the way his life has progressed and blames his unhappiness on a key moment in his life where he left behind a college scholarship to be with his future wife. Seventeen years after that moment, he has a chance to do it all over...but in his 17 year old form. He returns to highschool to relive the glory days and also comes to terms with the reality of his current life.

There are several HILARIOUS moments and Zac Efron surprisingly embodies Matthew Perry really convincingly. I guess he studied up on Friends. All-in-all, it was a cute movie but I would wait until it came out on DVD. I also will say, I appreciated all of the Lord of the Rings references as well. And Zac Efron. Not gonna lie...
