13 Going On 30
For some, 13 feels like it was just yesterday. For Jenna, it was.
After total humiliation at her thirteenth birthday party, Jenna Rink wants to just hide until she's thirty. With a little magic, her wish is granted, but it turns out that being thirty isn't as always as awesome as she thought it would be!
I am a guy. A bloke, chap, lad, dad, testosterone driven being.
I argue when I'm right, argue fiercer when I'm wrong and am never discouraged by the fact that I'm wrong 95% of the time.
I love football, beer, loud music, making fire and stuff that goes boom.
I am getting less hair where I want more and getting more hair where I want less. My testosterone makes me overcompensate by working out too much and acting like a juvenile git.
I am a guy.
And I unequivocally love this film and will defend it to death because I am right.
Review In A Nutshell:
Everyone has those set of films that they have encountered in their youth that stick with them in a positive light even after one has grown so much in emotional and physical maturity. 13 Going on 30, better titled in Australia as Suddenly 30, was a film that I encountered nearly on a daily basis during my days in primary school as my young sister was mesmerized by it, finding an amazing role model to cling onto, hoping that when she becomes older she would also find success in the realm of fashion and still retain that sense of innocence and virtue. I latched onto these films for different reasons; I found myself heavily attracted to…
The Hulk and Gollum dance to Thriller together, need I say more?
"I'll have a Pina Colada, not virgin. Wanna see my ID? Totally have it!"
13 Going On 30 is a tear-wrencher of the very most cruel kind - has me saying 'aaaaw' once too many. Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo are just too cute. I know it's not a perfect movie or anything - but it goes all the right places, and that's enough.
Also, a hint of the 80's is never a bad thing in my book.
A fun, funny guilty pleasure. An unoriginal plot (think the female version of Big) made enjoyable by a surprisingly charming Jennifer Garner who gives a surprisingly good performance. Her best in my opinion. Nice cast that includes Judy Greer and, oddly enough, Andy Serkis. Believe it or not, this was my first introduction to Mark Ruffalo and I've been a fan of the guy ever since. Loved the Thriller dance sequence. Great soundtrack. Touching and often hilarious.
A fantasy for horrible people who hate their lives and wish they could go back in time to when they were actually nice and lock down that kid who grows up to be Mark Ruffalo.
I saw this because I want to watch everything on this list I made and Lauren Lapkus said that she liked this on some podcast. If you want to know when my birthday is but don't want to ask me, just watch the beginning of this movie. Me and Jennifer Garner's character have the same birthday.
I had forgotten just how much I love this movie. Yes, it's terribly cliché, but it's well played. And, oh well, I just love these movies! I'm a sucker for happy endings, Hollywood style.
This movie has a great concept. A thirteen year-old girl hates her life at the moment and wants to be 30 so she can finally be the woman she wants to be. Little did she know that her dream would come true! But when she gets to that age, she realizes that her life is not exactly what she thought it would be.
Seeing the main character, Jenna, going through this, was really interesting. It's not every day that we see a 13 year-old girl in…
Such a good movie for positive body image
A classic teenager movie that I could not get enough of in middle school. Being 30 never looked so good
Sim, eu gosto! Sim, Jennifer Garner e Mark Ruffalo facilitam tudo!
Sessão da Tarde na veia!
A 13 year old girl plays a game on her 13th birthday and wakes up the next day as a 30 year old woman.
Slight romantic comedy, quite likable, but utterly predictable as well.
I still don't really understand Jenna's "Class of 2004" pitch for the redesign...
It's some sort of yearbook magazine? Genius!
Jenna complains that she "doesn't recognise" the people in fashion magazines - which one would interpret that she can't relate to their expressionless, symmetrical faces.
But she then explains "I want to see my best friend's big sister!"
Honey, I don't think that's how magazines work.
A modern classic nonetheless.
i cannot even describe my love for this film
Garner is effervescent here. Hollywood has dropped the ball not using her more effectively.
Not necessarily "Romcoms" that's a generalisation but Romance movies more along the lines of these that gave off similar vibes…
Movies about/starring women. I originally started this list just as a reference for myself, but hopefully others will find it…
