Movie Reviews

JENNA LEARNS THAT THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME & YOU CAN HAVE
Heather L. Parisi | St. Augustine, FL USA | 03/26/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"IN A NUTSHELL: NICE AGE APPROPRIATE FILM THAT DEALS WITH REAL ISSUES

Well done age appropriate comedy that underscores the universal frustration and impatience that teenage girls are known for. However, this movie's theme is about doing something about it, and to that end the film takes Jenna on a magical mystery time voyage which lands her right where she thinks she wants to be ---- 30 - COOOOOOL & HOT!

But is that exactly what she wanted?

THANKFULLY THERE'S MORE ---- IT'S ABOUT SELF-AWARENESS

There is a price to pay for this jump to age thirty, and as the movie progresses, Jenna becomes more aware of that and more importantly; MORE 'SELF-AWARE' IN THIS LEARNING PROCESS!

ABOUT THE DVD: GOOD VIDEO/AUDIO QUALITY AND WIDESCREEN TOO!

There were featurettes about the making of the film, but they were much leaner than I would have liked since this, after all, is a fantasy film for girls.

BOTTOM LINE: DEFINITELY WORTH SEEING - RESONATES STRONGLY AMONG TEENS: ESPECIALLY GIRLS

Much in the same tone as "The Wizard of Oz","13 GOING ON 30" takes the thoughts and ideas of a disgruntled young girl, and plays them out in full fantasy form, with somewhat the same outcome. "13 GOING ON 30" is definitely one of the better teen flicks out there, and it nicely melds fantasy with a girls viewpoint into a somewhat familiar though original story."
